Wedge Pond seriously has to be one of the finest spots for photography in Kananaskis. For sunrise, you've got this view of Mt. Kidd and the Fortress. For sunset, the mountains to the rear of me are quite beautiful. In the fall, the shore of the pond is a brilliant yellow from the aspens. And it's all just right off Highway 40, the main road through Kananaskis.
I'm on assignment for work in Calgary this week. Our office was closed on Canada Day, but since I live in the States, I still had to work. But that didn't mean I couldn't take half a morning to enjoy the beautiful day in these mountains that Calgarians got to enjoy.

The stillness of the water has offered you the perfect opportunity to capture this mirror-like reflection and you have done it with great aplomb. The slight mist on the surface of the water is the only indication of where reality ends and reflection begins.
I love the light and its colourful effects.
Have a great day,

You've programmed to take this picture and have prepared it very well. A cloud free morning, with the sun coloring in orange the peaks, no wind and a little mist at the surface of the lake which offers you a symetric picture.

A top class picture ! The symetry is perfect and the light is wonderful ! I love how the sun warms the top of the mountains. I love too the very light fog on the lake.
