Greetings Alex, Thanks for visiting the shores of Emerald Lake. I don't know the other visitors, but it made the scene a little more friendly. It was a great day with mild temperatures and a very light breeze. Cheers, Rich

you're right, it looks less alien... and it gives a sort of balance to the entire shot.

I see, the sun was shining. You had a good time to hike in the mountains.

Cheers, Eva

Greetings Eva, We were very fortunate. There were strong gusts when we left the parking lot and you could hear the wind in the tops of the trees as we hiked up. Nymph Lake and Dream Lake had strong gusts so we figured we would only stay a few minutes when we got to Emerald Lake. The wind can be biting cold up there because it comes straight down the gorge from the continental divide and across the cold lake. So it is uncomfortable when the wind blows. This day we got to the lake and the wind just died. It was amazing. And the sunlight reflecting off the snow in the cirque lit everything up in a really neat way. It was a very good day to hike up there. Cheers, Rich
