    Howdy folks!

    Well this past Sunday found me leaving my house just before 4am to head up to Rocky Mountain National Park here in Colorado. I wanted to get there VERY early for the best lighting possible. I made it into Estes Park just as there was a slight lightness in the Eastern sky. Well I figured that since I had time I would set up and shoot the sunrise at Lake Estes. I have always for years wanted to do this, and have always had it in the back of my mind. Well I wouldn't be disappointed. With Bull Elk bugling loudly across the lake, the colors on fire in the sky, it was sheer serenity, tranquility, and paradise!

    All these were shot on my 5D with a Minolta 18-200 DT lens, a Singh-Ray CPL, and tripod.

    No. 1 in your second post is better than No. 4 here ... I really like the "wrong format" composition of that scene in that Photo 1 over there.

    And your Photo 1 HERE has less camera shake than your Photo 4 in the other thread. So your No. 1 here is better than No. 4 there ... do I express myself :wink: ??

    Looks like it was enormously worth the while getting up so early!
