Close to Copeland Falls

Lower Copeland Falls - Wild Basin Area - Rocky Mountain National Park

I posted an image of this fall on this day as my second post
to TE. I decided to post this different view because for me it has a whole different quality and mood from this distance.

This little set of falls is only 1/3 of a mile from the trail head .. but that is often full on the weekends or closed during the off season and it is a mile to the trail from where you can park. This is a wonderful trail full of waterfalls and cascades of various sizes.

I have posted several photos from this autumn day .. we had tried to go to a favorite stand of aspens of mine .. got close .. (and I got some nice autumn shots) .. but Andrew refused to get out of the car and hike up the mountain to the place I wished to go. So instead we drove down the mountain to Wild Basin .. and for some reason Andrew thought this was the place to be and we had a joyous walk to the falls.

As I got here it started sleeting (half way between snow and ice) .. to say the least we were not dressed for it .. it was a wet and cold walk back to the car. I snapped maybe 50 shots from a few POVs .. luckily a half dozen of the were not ruined by the sleet. .. and for those the dark sky was great for the long exposure.
