Dreaming in Rocky Mountain National Park

Estes Park photographer Erik Stensland captures a lot of magnificent images in Rocky Mountain National Park, but my favorites are always the quiet, misty ones where clouds seem to shut out the rest of the world so you can enjoy a private moment of reverie. “Like a Dream” captures Dream Lake on a quiet, cloud-shrouded day. Reprinted here by permission. Click the the image to view with black background.

You can see this image on Erik’s website, along with much of his other work. If you’re in Estes, be sure to stop by his gallery, Images of RMNP, across the street north of Bond Park.

(Note: I later received a copy of this photograph as a gift, and Stensland’s note on the back said the storm building in this picture is the one that, the next day, brought Northern Colorado’s historic September 2013 floods.)
