Its a perfect reflection! Who dares to drop the first stone into the lake?

Re: Perfect!

Thanks Klaus. Indeed, a perfect reflection happens rarely enough that I can't bear to throw even a pebble into the water. But I had to beg my partners not to ruin that reflection before I got some photos.

This one reminds me of my favorite photo you've taken here.

Re: Favorite...

Thanks Derek! Interesting comparison. The Enchantments are often compared to the Sierra, as you know. They're both very beautiful, which I guess increases the likelihood of capturing nice images! -Bob

Why yes I am! There are so many shades of blue plus the black and grey really add to the brilliance of the blue.

Re: Where did you camp?

You're so right that the lake is surrounded by boulders, but if you look closely at the center area of this photo, you can see a small area of "September green". (Click on the Orig link to see a larger version). We spotted it while coming down from Alpine Col. We were very lucky because it was getting too late in the day to get all the way around the lake in daylight! -Bob
