A few years back, while I was backpacking into Colorado’s Flat Top Wilderness, I came across this pond. You can tell that the surrounding area had been devastated by a wildfire close to 20 years ago. It amazes me how long a forest will take to recover from a fire. The cool thing is that the forest always does.
Photographer’s Note – I shot this image with my old Lumix LX5 and processed it in Lightroom 4.
