I came across these two tree trunks in Jackson Lake at the Grand Tetons National Park. A spring snow storm had just finished, the sun was setting, and a beautiful blue cast swept the lake.

This photograph won the Best of Nature show at the San Deigo Natural History Museum and will be shown there late this summer!!!!
