It looks like those bigger boulders in the foreground might have rock tripe lichens on them.

They definitely had something on them…some were black, others orange….

Sounds like it was time for macro mode.

Hmm…you’re probably right. 🙂

Wow, stunning photo. The Rockies are so inspiring as their vastness and grandness make you think in a different way. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Pal Guy…and yes, the mountains do cause you to think in a different way…changes your perspective a bit.

Very nice Scott. Looks like maybe a good spot for a bit of scree running.. 😉

Thank you, Chillbrook…I was more comfortable on this scree than others that I’ve mentioned…I could often see the ground beneath the rocks and boulders…didn’t think I was going to get sucked under!

Always amazing to stumble onto those hidden pools.

Yes, it is, CJ…beautiful and unexpected treasures.
Great pairing/echoing of the rocks’ texture and the shimmer on the water’s surface — beautiful.

Thank you, Rona…there was a nice breeze up there, so I didn’t have to wait too long for that shimmer between shots. 🙂

Beautiful scene of your taller mountains…. 😉 Can’t help but think about Chillbrook’s scree running, seems like you’d end up in the lake. Could be a good thing if it’s hot enough.

Yes, my taller mountains…. 😉 And yes, the scree-running sounds compelling…for a moment…and the water was quite chilly.

I like the perspective the people in the foreground bring to the picture. Those surely are some big rocks 🙂
September 26, 2012 at 5:22 pm
Yes, Nate…huge rocks…and the people do help with the perspective thing…. 🙂

Sigh. those pines really stand out nicely. They are very stately.

Big sigh from me, too…and I agree, the pines are rather stately, standing out against all of that rock.
