Prospect Lake Sunrise

These photos are taken at Prospect Lake early one morning, near downtown Colorado Springs.
The first was taken with a wide-angle lens, while the second was taken from the same spot with a telephoto lens.
Visit the awesome Skywatch Friday meme for lots of great photos!

  4. Gorgeous gold reflection -- and it's impressive that this lovely lake is right in the middle of town.

  5. Amazingly different aspects of the same shot.
    Is it a natural lake, or man-made? It seems very tranquil.

  14. Great shots for Skywatch. I specially love the colourful reflections in the first photo.
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

    OT: I think you were in the Netherlands too soo. We have indeed had many years without real winter and snow, but since the winter of 2009-2010 we've had a lot of cold weather and snow again. And I love it!
