Peyto Lake is a glacier fed lake in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. It's located near the Icefields Parkway. During the summer, significant amounts of glacial rock flour flow down from a nearby glacier, and these suspended particles are what give the lake the unique, bright turquoise color

A little bit more color on this one.would be more beautiful IMHO.

@fredzhang Fred, I printed it and kept thinking something was missing. It’s funny that you suggested that because I was thinking to slightly increase the vibrancy and saturation mostly in the mid-ground. Tomorrow’s project. Great minds think alike!!

I can see between the HDR Switch Image and the Full Screen image that you did examine this image and come to the conclusion that it could indeed be worthy of an HDR Treatment. I only hope that other members can see this and appreciate your work. Thanks for sharing.
