Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer.  Not a bad place to be.  This little stream sits along side the trail as you hike up away from Bear Lake.  I don't really remember how far up the trail we are here, but I do know it's leaving from the Bear Lake trailhead.  What I like most about this image is the silky smooth water, and how green and vibrant the foliage is.  This is an HDR image, so combining the images is what gives the water its look.  The rest of it comes from being late spring and shooting at mid morning.  Summer's heat hadn't taken hold yet, turning everything brown.  I love Spring.  Glad it's almost here...
