"Bear Finally"

Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park

Most people have no idea just how hard it is to get some of these shots. I've been trying to get a shot like this for six years now. This is the first time I've had no wind, a good reflection, good light on Longs Peak, healthy aspen, and a few clouds. Generally, one or more of these elements is missing. It has only take me six years to get this classic shot of Bear Lake. :-)
