Brainard Lake - Indian Peaks Wilderness

Got up at 2am last week to drive up to Brainard Lake for the sunrise. Or I should say the sunrise that never happened. Completely clouded over. After I gave up hope that the sun would pierce through the little tiny gap of sky and clouds I decided to leave (had to go back to the pay station to pay my fee) No sooner than I did the clouds started parting, rushed back and fired off a few shots. The windless morning helped me capture some really nice reflections. Very peaceful out there - never saw a soul. Not the sunrise shot I was hoping for but had a blast the rest of the day hiking along the trails!
