This is one of my favorite places in the world to be and to rejuvenate from the stresses that seem so prominent at sea level. I have driven to this area so many times, I can't even remember how many. This place, and others like it continue to draw me to them. There is a silence to these places I have never been able to fully capture in words and only come a bit closer when I confine them within my camera. I am in awe of these places...

I love the colors especially the color of the sky with the mountain and its reflection in the lake.

This is also beautiful. I wonder if a touch of selective contrsat and USM on the mountain would punch it up a little....

Lovely reflection with that lovely disruption in the water to create a soothing shift. Congratulations on your top twenty finish.

And this road she is a woman,
She was made from a rib cut from the
Sides of these mountains of these
Great sleeping Adams who are
Lonely even here in paradise,
Lonely for somebody to kiss them
And I'll sing my song
In the land of my sojourn

started singing this song the moment i saw this picture in the top 20 and noticed the name underneath... congrats.

BEAUTIFUL!

This is Heather Lake right? I knew I recognized it. My husband and I hiked there many times when we were still stationed in Seattle.

You captured it well:o)

Very nice and calm image. I wish the sky had more detail, but the weather can be really tricky. Wonderful execution though, one of my top rated images.

Great sharp photo. The filter used on the camera really brings out the mountain in the background.

I usually don't comment on borders, but I think this one detracts from the image.

very soft focus

I bet every comment you've gotten says this, but since this photo takes my breath away and renders me at a loss for words, I'll just use the over-used one: WOW!!!!!!!!! A flawless "my kind" of photo! and also one of only a very few 10's I've given out so far! Congratulations on a most perfect photo! 10

Classic, beautiful shot. Very clean and crisp; good color. For future use, clone out the straw in the very lower left hand corner.

Nice landscape. The sky in the reflection has nice colors. The snow looks a little blown out, but not enough to detract from the beauty of the image. Nice.

This is a beautiful photo. The only thing that would have made it even more beautiful is if there was no ripples in the water. Love the colors.

beautiful landscape and awesome reflection! I really like this because of the colors. One thing I would do is clone out those yellow things at the bottom (just a tiny thing)! Good Luck!! ;)
