The soft colors of sunset reflect off the snow, creating this breathtakingly beautiful shot from Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Christian Schaffer snapped this pic a few months ago when the park’s snowpack was over 8 feet high. Of the experience, she says, “It was so incredibly beautiful and also incredibly cold – all of our electronics died while we were out there except my one camera battery. The cold was worth it though; one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever seen.” Photo courtesy of Christian Schaffer.
