The Morning Mist at Red Rock Lakes NWR

I don’t have much time to post today but I wanted to share a few photos taken this week of the mists at the Lower Lake of Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge in Montana. Red Rock Lakes NWR is an incredibly wild and beautiful location that has stolen a piece of my heart. I really don’t mind that it has.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up and see a scene like this?

    I just got back from Seney NWR in Upper Michigan and have similar “misty morning” shots; love the early morning.
