Avalanche Lake Morning

Posted by

Avalanche Lake in Montana is the perfect place to spend a July morning, and also the perfect place to dream about on a cold February morning.

A beautiful and very appealing lake setting where anyone would like to visit and sit awhile to take it all in.
I like how you used the foreground with the old log. A fine mountain scene.

@Don: Thanks, Don. I thought the log was perfect for that scene.

I wonder how many feet of snow they have there now? Superb shot to create a sense of place.

23 Feb 2011 7:45pm

@Bill Laing: I can't imagine! I bet it would be really tricky just to get to the trailhead with the road closed, much less up to the lake. I would love to see a photo of it right now.

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

An image that is a dream held by so much beauty, a picture of a fairy tale that takes us to faraway adventures, where the curve of the lake draws the perfect symphony of nature.

Gary from Cochise County, United States

Now that's a true Kodak Moment! So that's where you got your name.

24 Feb 2011 1:02am

@Gary: Yes, Gary, the name is partly because I'm always looking for that perfect Kodak Moment, but it's also for my cat - Kodak - that I had for 16 years. She was a beauty, and I loved to photograph her. (The dog was Fuji and the cat was Kodak.) ;-)
