I have been out shooting for a couple of weeks and thought it was about time I posted something new! I grabbed this shot from a few years ago that was taken while hiking above Lost Lake in the Gunnison National Forest. Middle Creek flows down the sideĀ of East Beckwith Mountain. The water was flowing nicely in late July and made for perfect conditions for shooting the falls. I have been there earlier in the year and it is nearly impossible to get a shot because of the spray and wet rocks. The hike up to these falls starts down at Lost Lake Slough (the larger lake) and climbs past the falls up to Dollar Lake. It is a wonderful hike with gorgeous views out to the north.
