“An Emerald Delight”
Photo of the Week #9, selected in July, 2019

A few miles north of Crested Butte, Colorado, nestled in the Elk Mountains between Mount Baldy and Mount Bellview, is a lake with a beautiful hue. Crested Butte has some of the most beautiful sights to explore and Emerald Lake is certainly no exception. The alpine lake sits above 11,000 feet and is one of two so-named lakes in Colorado, the other being in the greater Rocky Mountain National Park.

Shortly after taking this photo, we had it printed to canvas and framed for our (then) living room wall — the centerpiece of the room’s decor! The sun, clouds, shadows and pines made the canvas print appear as a painting, especially when the sun shone on it from the nearby living room window. The color print is now one of four prominent photos in our fifth wheel’s living room.
