I actually photographed these images in late August at sunrise in the Tundra at Rocky Mountain National Park. It had snowed the night before – the roads were icy – and it was very, very cold and windy. I barely was able to open the car door when I reached the top of Trail Ridge Road. At over 12,000 feet high, within minutes, I could barely move my fingers to hold my camera and photograph even though I was wearing gloves and multiple layers of clothing. It was another experience that reminded me to behold the beauty around me and, at the same time, to respect the environment.
