Emerald Lake Sunrise Moonset

Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park is very difficult to photograph because the lake is right up against the high mountains.  After I purchased a super wide angle lens (8-15mm) I decided to take a crack at it.  Emerald Lake is 10,090' and fills a deep bowl carved by Tyndall glacier from the eastern flanks of Hallet Peak and Flattop Mountain (12,324').  This is the moon setting just as the sunrise is ready to hit the peaks.  View more Colorado photos at http://www.marblejones.com/p459698259
