View taken at the Vermillion Lakes, just outside of the town of Banff.
Info on the mountain from Wikipedia:
Mount Rundle is a mountain in Banff National Park overlooking the towns of Banff and Canmore, Alberta. The Cree name Waskahigan Watchi or house mountain.
Mt. Rundle could actually be considered a small mountain range as the mountain extends for over 12 kilometres (7.5 mi), on the south side of the TransCanada Highway eastward from Banff to Canmore with seven distinct peaks along the way. The third peak southeast of Banff is the highest at 9,675 feet (2,949 m).
In 1858 John Palliser renamed the mountain after Reverend Robert Rundle, a Methodist invited by the Hudson's Bay Company, to do missionary work in western Canada in the 1840s. He introduced syllabics there — a written language developed for the Cree, as part of his missionary work. He only visited the Stoney-Nakoda of the area around what is now called Mount Rundle in 1844 and 1847.

It looks very, cold is my first thought about this shot, brr! It is a stunning view with the majestic mountains in the backdrop and it is probably also a wonderful place to visit during Summer season. Captured from a good spot with an excellent view of this impressive nature, tfs!

Bad light conditions but I like the framing. The little wooden hulk leads the eyes to the mountain.

this is a great image, the stillness is overwhelming and yet the view is very interesting. I like very much how you solidified your composition with the structure in the foreground and the jetty that directs our glance to the background. The area of the shore and the lake looks desolate, although there are a few signs of human presence. The mountain is awesome. There's great consistency in the colour palette and the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best and a very Merry Christmas!
