Perhaps I'm a bit biased, but it's been a while since I've taken a shot that I've liked so much. I love the blue skies, the composition, the complementary colors of the wildflowers, and the overall beauty of the scene.
This is Bow Lake, taken as I was literally lying on the edge of the Icefields Parkway trying to get as much of the fireweed in the frame as possible without the road showing up. :)

An amazing picture.It is absolutely stunning.The fireweed flowers on the diagonal leads my eye in to the snow capped mountains in the background and back to the reflections on the water.

No wonder you like this photo, the view is fabulous. You did well lying on the parkway, the fpink flowers are so eyecatching. And how marvelous are the mountains and refletions in this emerald water. Fascinating place. I saw amny wonderful photo from Banff, it is really worth visiting place, a pity that so far away :).
Stunning picture, composition, colours, sharpness, all perfect.

una vista spettacolare, bellissima composizione, con una fantastica luce e dei colori splendidi.
Il riflesso contribuisce alla bella riuscita dello scatto, così come il cielo.
Eccellente foto e bella condivisione.

You must have your Canadian citizenship by now...
I am so jealous of this one, as the light and colours are sublime. Everything is at the right place and in right proportions. I photographed this mountain myself, but without the foreground that you have introduced so cleverly, it doesn't have a fraction of the majestic beauty of yours.
Very admirable work. Now I am missing my country more than ever...

This is a great capture of this beautiful scene. The addition of the flowers in the foreground add depth and color for the shot. The reflection is fine providing depth and balance for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has outstanding sharpness and DOF.

Hi Clark. An amazing shot, though not so difficult to capture in the marvelous landscape of Alberta or British Columbia. Yes, the colour of the flora is real as the blue sky is laguna blue. Great point of view, depth, and sharpness of the frame, a superior presentation. Thanks for sharing !!!
