I traveled more than an hour before dawn to get to this Canadian lake, and without coffee, if you can believe that, and then the sky never really blazed with color. At one point, in this grizzly bear country, I was started by a large animal directly behind me, but it was only the bighorn sheep, who are very used to tourists. Over time, this photo has grown on me. A subtle mood sometimes is a nice change of pace.
