A Mountain Stream Near Silverton, Colorado

This is an image of late day sunlight on a stream above our campsite just outside of Silverton, Colorado. This was one of our coldest
nights camping with a low of close to 20 degrees. The next morning our rental SUV had a deadened leaking battery and we had to wait close to seven hours for a tow truck to arrive. Just another adventure along the way.

A lovely image with wonderful lighting! I guess the cell phone saved the day.

Some how the cold was evident when I first looked at the photo. I'll bet you were glad to get home...and your cell phone worked.

How beautiful the way the late day light is hitting the stream. What a story to tell to go with this fine photo. V

It is quite an achievement with your composition to take all of this variety and make it come together like this!
I am inspired by this beauty!

Well worth the effort, Dave. Perfect perspective
to engage the viewer on the parks highlights.

Your photography is always top notch. Lovely lighting, tones, and composition. A beautiful image. Well worth a cold night of camping. As for the dead battery & long wait in the wilderness for assistance, "been there; done that". As you said, after all is said & done, it's just part of the adventure and a story to tell. To use the cliché: all is well that ends well.

Great light in this beautiful composition I hope you got a lot of pictures while waiting seven hours (!) for the tow truck. V.
