Crossing The Reflection by Dani-Lefrancois Crossing The Reflection by Dani-Lefrancois
BANFF!

Vermilion Lakes
Banff National Park

Seriously my favourite place. I can't wait for this to be within driving distance!!!!!

I know there is no awesome glow or anything, but i still love the muted brightness of this scene!!

*UPDATE*
Now that i have resized this, You can actually see in the center left a small herd of elk crossing the lake.

I got a smile on my face when I saw this shot. -FINALLY, I thought. Finally a shot (in a while) that shows and represent the naked beauty of nature.
Here the composition and perpective shows the natural light, the ambient colors and the stillness of a wonderful location.

I think it's good that this show don't have the sunset of Gods or the morning of Vikings. It doesn't need that boost to show it's beauty. Sure a sunset/sunrise here would clearly be absolutely fantastic and majestic, but not needed.

A well balanced shot with good elements of nature and a view of beauty rarely seen in it's natural form. The light here is stunning. Soft, distant glow and just about shimmer on the top of the mountains, classic!

Great work!

Some clouds are good but as you have said plain grey overcast without definition to the clouds is terrible. We seem to get a lot of that in southern Ontario especially last fall and this winter.
