Upper Sardine Lake

I was there when winter just started to give a way to Spring. It was still quite cold there but the beauty of this place kept me hiking there for a day until I found the perfect composition I was looking for.

These bright green pines in the distance provided such a dramatic contrast to the scene showing how new life takes over this place when the time comes.
