Gold Creek Pond

We were up in Seattle for a birthday celebration last weekend, which means we got to visit our son at college. He got up with me and Bill well before dawn, and the three of us headed up to Snoqualmie Pass for a sunrise hike around Gold Lake Pond. It was a peaceful time of day for a hike, and we had a lot of fun photographing the mountain and mist reflections. There wasn't a bad angle to photograph, but the prettiest photos happened early in the hike when the mist was the heaviest. I especially liked this photo, because of the rock visible in the crystal clear water.

What a breathtaking composition... The lanscape looks so nice on this particular point of view... I like the clouds scarfing around the mountain.
