David Cobb, Adam Gibbs and I spent one cold, windy night up high in the Enchantments near Asgard Pass. It turned out that it was the only sunset of the trip with any clouds in the sky. As the color moved from east to west we all noticed that this small waterfall and pool was situated in just a way to give a great reflection. There wasn't much opportunity to get creative. A slight move right, left, forward, back, up or down and the reflection no longer lined up. Fortunately the landscape had already situated itself quite nicely with water, stone and snow all sweeping up toward Dragon Tail Peak.

Canon 5DMKIII, 16-35mm at 32mm. Three exposures blended using layer masking techniques in Photoshop: 1, 2 and 4 seconds @ f/18 and ISO 100.
