19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Red Mountains In White & Blue

On a cold October morning, I headed to this lake, which is very close to my home. I had been waiting for these exact conditions- Icy, but not frozen. Crisp as heck, but not frigid. This is one of my favorite local views and I was so pleased to see it looking majestic as all get out after an overnight snow.
