17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Emerald lake In the mist

On this morning in the autumn everything was a foggy drop into infinity. As the sun breaking out of the clouds, Emerald lake with Hallett Peak, and Flattop Mountain all came to life. The photo was taken at Emerald Lake, a true jewel in the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
