I was at this location three days in a row. The first day I ended up soaking wet in pouring rain. On day two I had to tie my camera to a massive rock because of super strong winds and I also took this picture while I was witnessing the rad colors in the sky. The third day was my favorite though. Actually I was pretty happy with this shot already, but I wanted to get a different angle. So again, I was hiking around for a while, looking for a better composition. But fog came in and I decided to call it a day, walked back to the trail and somehow intuitively looked up to the sky and saw a huge golden eagle right above my head. It was so close and impressive, I almost got scared and for a moment I was just stunned by it's majestic beauty. I watched it fly in circles and then eventually disappear in the fog over the lake. That was just epic and a moment to remember!

Just up my street this, stunning image. Just wondering if you used two separate exposures? long exposure for the sky and a faster speed to capture the landscape. Either way it's a great shot

it looks like the shot in the Secret life of Walter Mitty where Ben Stiller is about to make an epic longboard ride down a beautiful road in Iceland. Simply Awesome
