The most relaxing mornings of my life have been spent alongside glacier lakes. Admiring, watching the stars fade from view, watching fish break the stillness, sending ripples through the glass reflection. Over the years, Emerald Lake has been a destination I’ve returned to over and over again. 

 This time was an especially remarkable one. As the sun rose up over the surrounding mountains, there was an explosion of light that cut across the landscape. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I captured it for you to experience.
