Reflections in Sixty Lake Basin

Large on black


Another shot from Sixty Lake Basin, just 2 miles from Rae Lakes. Man, what a great place. Fortunately, fewer people go there as most are timebound on the, excellent, Rae Lakes loop. We only spent one night there but had sixty lakes practically to ourselves. We stopped at this lake when we arrived to filter water for dinner. I asked Maria to stop pumping water for the great reflection. We were both going somewhat slowly feeling the altitude and a long days hiking.


Mt Clarence King, in the distance, is a challenge to climb so we read. You can also see the makings of the clouds we enjoyed over dinner.


Handheld HDR from 3 shots in Photomatix.

(I wonder, by changing the polarizer between shots for an HDR, if it would be possible to both see through the water and the reflection. Any thoughts?)
