The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest lies in Washington State and sprawls more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains from the Canadian border to the northern boundary of Mt. Rainier National Park. In the winter, this area is a hot spot for skiiers. During the summer, the area is very quiet and becomes the haunt of bear, deer, and hikers.

Again, GREAT photo that you bring an other world to show us. I love the mood and reflection of the lake, it's a point on this shot. Excellent !

A splendid scenery very well captured in your photo, John. Very nice to see this deep blue color of the lake as it is surrounded by the grand mountains. A lovely range of saturated colors and natural textures, and the subtle reflections on the water surface are very pretty as well. Truly a fine scenic photo, well done.

This is a picture of quality.
The composition is interesting. The cold colours are very nice.
The image quality is not at its best with the pixelated pattern but this is surely due to Internet conversion.
And these pixels are well hidden by the grass.
The landscape is breathtaking.

Cela ressemble à une caldera volcanique; j'apprécie beaucoup ce paysage parfaitement cadré.
Its looks like a volcanic caldera; I appreciate much this perfectly tallied landscape.

Yes, indeed a wonderful and quiet place around the lake and in between the mountains. Lovely shapes of nature and I also like the reflections in the very blue water. Well done!

un panorama richement coloré qui coupe le souffle par sa beauté. Le ciel et les couleurs sont séduisants et ce petit lac très accueillant. Mais peut-être n'est-il pas adapté aux baignades.
Une image nette et bien contrastée, merveilleusement cadrée.
supereira (9576) 2005-07-24 15:19

Beautiful mountain view John, so nice to have a lake between these mountains, thanks for sharing this wonderful nature shot, well seen.

Il existe des endroits dans le monde qui mérite d'être regardé avec délectation. La nature nous offre des paysages magnifiques qu'il faut savoir préserver. On dirait que le temps s'est arrêté.
Superbe photographie, John.

jmdaoudal (82) 2005-07-24 18:23
Very wild and deep place, a very good photo for a beautiful lake and a sharp mountain, this looks to be a nice place for a trek.
I like the colors
singuanti (15250) 2005-07-24 19:25
Hi John. I will be going very close to this area as well on my vacation. Was this off a road or during a hike? But your clarity here just blows me away. I like the partial reflection and the way that cumulus cloud fills the notch in the mountain. Incredible shot John!!
MarekP (4750) 2005-07-25 0:04
A splendid view indeed. Fantastic well saturated colours, strong contrast, perfect clarity and sharpness. Very well done.
quantabeh (5205) 2005-07-25 1:51

Superbe photo John, le paysage est magnifique.
danielswalsh (13593) 2005-07-25 3:59
Another nice shot John;
I'm jealous of your ventures to all these gorgeous places! I haven't been to Mt. Baker since I was a kid back in the early 80's. I remember my dad taking my up to go skiing. Mt. Baker truly is a beautiful mountain- as you well know- clearly visible from Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Nice capture!
aloyho (6798) 2005-07-25 5:22
Standing here and looking infront gives us that feeling of being on top of the world where we can just forget the worries of the day and be happy. I love the curve of the mountains as if welcoming us there and the beautiful green with the white snow is certainly most refreshing. Well done!! Regards.
PixelTerror (0) 2005-07-25 5:57
That's just splendid, you got a nice overlooking PoV to show well this nicelike surrounded by beautiful mountains, must be a fantastic place to hike !
Framed just right and with great colors, maybe a tiny bit too sharpened ?
July and remaining snow, must be quite high too, no ?
Have a nice day,
jhm (128073) 2005-07-25 7:54
Wow what a beautiful panorama view, splendid and very lovely of colours, great work here!
My compliments John,
weswang (18223) 2005-07-25 10:27
Hi John, I like the combination of the lake, the rock mountain, and the snow patches. I guess that here is a still a good place for die hard skiers. A beautiful capture of the blue sky and the beautiful reflections on the water. The road on the side of the lake makes a nice size reference to the area.
An excellent picture.
Cormac (26545) 2005-07-25 10:47
Very peaceful and beautfiul. I like the way the whole lake is framed by the valley, like a jewel in the rough. Well done John.
ChrisJ (91292) 2005-07-26 3:39
Wow! A superb landscape, with excellent color lighting & sharpness. I like the reflected blue sky in the lake. Good work!

Very impressive shot. You captured very well the beauty of this place. The deep blue pond contrasted very well with the surrounding montains. Very well done.
t0mmm1 (5440) 2005-07-26 13:03
Hi John, seems a very quiet and beautiful place to me. Here I can really hear the whisper of the mountain breeze over the lake. I like it very much.
mumek (20196) 2005-07-26 18:20
Good evening John!
I am speechless. Super scenery, great shot,wonderful composition. Congratulations.
feather (51128) 2005-07-26 18:26
A simply stunning shot John. I love the reflections and the tiny path on the right really emphasises the scale.
jbweasle (9373) 2005-07-27 3:29
Stunning scenery - I like the detail of the rocks and the different colours of the mountains (green, grey, white). The lake is attractive and the clouds seem to bubble over the peaks.
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-07-27 4:42
A fine capture of this impressive landscape.
Very well composed with good use of the space.
I like the mood here very much.Perfect exposure control for this crisp and clear image.
CliffW (2373) 2005-07-27 8:48
Wow John, I've been away and you've posted a gorgeous shot. With the foreground in a concave to match the slopes on the opposite shore, looking into this alpine lake is a bit like looking into a vortex. Sort of goes on forever. Really nicely done.
sarju (5324) 2005-07-27 9:54
Splendid scenery you have captured here
its hard to believe how nice and quiet it is
cheers ... sarju
Steft (5975) 2005-07-27 14:02
Amazing photo - I don't know this kind of landscapes from the Netherlands or Denmark, but it really looks beautiful. Splendid composition with the water in the middle. The photo also has an excellent quality. You did a good job here, John!
annagrace (2467) 2005-07-27 15:25
Gorgeous capture - isn't that the most amazing park? I took my husband there some years ago and he thought the whole thing looked fake, as green as it was! Lovely colors, well seen!
toni_al (15873) 2005-07-27 20:48

rrdaniels (108) 2011-08-20 16:14
I've loved the cascades since I visited Crater Lake in Oregon some 30 some years ago. On our grand tour west it seemed a long days journey from anywhere but the scenery particularly the blues and contrasting rocks and snow (even in July!) make me recommend the trip to anyone. I've recently come to TE so my posts may seem belated, but I had to comment on your spectacular capture of those blues, volcanic rocks and the snow.
