This lake has been one of my favorite places in the Canadian Rockies since I first visited it nearly three years ago: Herbert Lake.
It may be one of the smaller lakes in the Canadian Rockies, but it has to be one of the most scenic--surrounded by the Waputik Range to the west and the mountains of Lake Louise to the southwest. Given that it's right next to the Icefields Parkway, almost everyone that travels along the Parkway stops to visit the lake. And so of course I did too. :)
After a stormy morning, the clouds had started to clear about a half hour before this. This was the best light we got for the rest of the day. What a beautiful spot it was.

What a great reflection you got here...Impressive! I like the rows of trees and the mountain range towering above...The clouds add additional beauty to this scene. My only complaint is the high color saturation which looks a bit artificial...
Thanks for sharing!

Of course it`s "revisited"; it`s always a pleasure to be there.
The light is awesome with those fluffy clouds and the beautiful colors.
You are getting better and better,Clark.

The polarizer worked well, even on a wide angle. The sky is a nice uniform color rather than being darker on one side of the photo. Very nice.

Have been busy working on my website so little time to view and critique here. Hey, this is a great Rocky Mountain image - really nice perspective, good reflections, and awesome colors. I like it and TFS. Gerald
