For those of us who live in Northern Utah it seems that "The Uintas" and "Mirror Lake" are almost synonymous though "Mirror Lake" is just one of the dozens of lakes in "The Uintas". It's not even the biggest, and in my mind it's not necessarily the prettiest though it certainly is picturesque. For this photo below I caught it when it wasn't very mirror like because there was a bit of a breeze giving it quite a bit of texture. The long shadows give away that it is either late in the day or early. In this case it was only about an hour prior to sunset.
As I'm sure you would suspect there are many beautiful treats for the eyes and this little spot where the two streams merge was no exception. It was taken fairly early on day two of our trip.
I was so excited about our camping trip and getting everything ready that I actually walked out without my camera tripod. I learned many years ago that if you don't have a tripod lean against something solid or rest your camera on something, or worse case scenario spread your feet apart, relax and be your own bipod. This photo was hand held using that last method. I prefer the real tripod method.
