Get Out While You Can!
October is one of my favorite months to photograph the subalpine lakes in Rocky. Often the lakes have just started to freeze or may still be open so you can get some amazing reflections as well as shiny ice. Be sure to dress extremely warm if you shoot sunrise, and know your trails well as they often get snow covered. Pro tip: don't take your gloves off to take the shot. Your fingers will thank you greatly. Great spots would be Dream, Mills, Loche, Haiyaha, Helene, Two Rivers, and a hand full of other lakes in the Bear Lake area.
