Taken from 'The Tourist Lookout'! Peyto Lake's aqua-coloured waters reflect the cumulus clouds building over the peaks from the nothwest, that later brought snow showers, the first of which is visible in the distance up the rift valley.

Color of the lake is just beautiful. Dynamic clouds make in a way extension to great mountains... Really great composition and place!

Your wonderful capture includes many seasons. Splendid colored lake very attractive since your photo's thumbnail. Your timing is also very good for cloud formations and lights. Perfect clarity and sharpness, in natural colors. Congratulations.

Nice shot Jeff;
Some interesting elements to this shot, first off being the lake, second being the great detail in the rock, and lastly are the fluffy detailed clouds. It all comes together to make a nice shot. Realistic colors and sharp detail.

Nice composition on this classic lake ;)
You were lucky to have the storm clouds and still get a patch of blue sky, that makes the lake's reflection even better and gives the whole scene much more movement.

Hey, this is one of the finer shots of this landmark lake that I have ever seen. The square format catches attention and the clouds and shadows add interest. Well done and TFS. Gerald

This is the classic view of this lake. Unfortunately everytime I go th sky is cloudy. Excellent colours and very good sharpness. The colour of this lake is truly beautiful. A few years ago I skied across this lake on my way to the Wapta Icefields. Cheers Jeff :-)
