Morning Glow Of Lake Estes by kkart Morning Glow Of Lake Estes by kkart
Just before dawn is a time when the world seems so calm, at ease with everything. A time when the light slowly starts to push the night back, and a time when the only thing you hear is silence. Everything for a photographer at that moment comes to realization, why you wake up at the ungodly hour of 3am, why you shoot, why you love what you do, and why you choose to do it when the rest of the world is asleep. It isn't just about photographing the scene, but the whole experience and taking it all in and with you, too. It is why we choose to shoot the things which we do.

Such was the scene on this morning along the shores of Lake Estes in Estes Park, Colorado. Not a soul sound, just the world asleep in it's slumber and the stillness of the water. Welcome to my little slice of heaven.

Great image, I often call this the 'God hour', the hour before the sun comes up, when I have some of my best conversations with 'God' Lol :D
