Dropping back down towards the trailhead, we arrived at the paved – flat – trail leading in to Rainy Lake. This is a short (about a mile) easy walk from the trailhead parking lot.
I love the reflections in the lake and the lines coming off of the mountains bringing the eye into the center of the photo.
Just need a red canoe to make it pop!
It was almost 5:00 pm on the last day of September, so light was nice. Mind you, we are looking due south from here, I doubt the sun gets into this bowl very much.
This is an HDR. Because there was hardly a ripple on the lake, I think it worked well, allowing me to pull out the waterfall on the right while showing off the autumn colors around the bowl.
