Another image of the Maroon Bells photographed a bit later in the day.  I waited a few hours to let the light reach the foothills near Maroon Lake.  The lake remained completely calm which is rare.  I photographed this composition several times and this shot with a slight ripple in the water from visiting Canadian Geese added a painterly feel to the mountains reflection.

During Autumn, the banks of this small lake are completely filled with hundreds of photographers hoping for a gorgeous morning.  During the summer you often have it to yourself with fields full of wildflowers in the meadow north of the lake.
