Photographer's Note

This is String Lake in Grand Teton National Park which is a glacier lake. This was taken on a hike to see Leigh Lake early in the morning. The colors of this lake were something of a chameleon because when there was no wind the water was blue but with a little wind the turquoise we associate with glacier lakes becomes evident.

The mountain on the right is Mount Moran which is 12605 ft (3842 meters) tall and on the left is Mount Rockchuck which is 11144 ft (3396 meters) tall.

Believe it or not I actually de-saturated the colors from the original.

I was having fun with symmetry here and it was taken around 9am.
