The snow storm had passed, the morning dawning clear and calm. I drove up to Granite Lake on the Prescott National Forest just west of town to check out the morning light.
It was perfect. Bright, clear, the deciduous trees (willows and cottonwoods) in the riparian zone along the edge of the lake leafing out. Almost nobody around. The reflection of Granite Mountain slowly undulated on the water’s surface, mesmerizing me.
