Color Inspiration Mountain Lake
by Debbie Blair
With summer nearly upon us, it's time to make plans for getting outdoors as much as possible in the coming months. Look around you every day to be inspired with color combinations that nature does naturally!
Living in Colorado, my family has ample opportunity to spend lazy summer weekends in the mountains, hiking, fishing, or just plain relaxing. There's a tranquility that settles into one's soul upon escaping the busy atmosphere of city life and absorbing the peacefulness found in nature.
Bear Lake is one of the most popular locations in the Colorado mountains, serving as the trailhead for a number of hiking spots. While its popularity peaks in the summertime, devoted adventurers can be found snowshoeing on any one of its trails in the midst of winter. I imagine this type of experience offers an even more serene escape when the trails are much less crowded.
This photo of Bear Lake suggests a tranquil palette of blues and greens. Use it as a basis for a playful pair of tassel earrings-the perfect addition to any summer outfit!
