Morning Illusion

Morning Illusion

Going to the mountains has become my passion of experiencing the wilderness, which has not to be for a photography purpose. The raw and vast mountainous features always give me more emotional responses than any other places.

We woke up at 4:00am. By looking at the dark sky, we knew that the morning light would be interesting. Not far from our campsite, we went to this tarn and found that it actually provided a beautiful illustration of the mountain surroundings at such magic moment.
