Deep Blue

Weminuche Wilderness, CO

A picture perfect afternoon in the Highland Mary Lakes region of the Weminuche Wilderness of southwestern Colorado. The secret to this image was in a blend of two exposures for the two prominent lakes that you see. In the nearest lake, I used maximum polarization to accentuate the reflections of the clouds while in the background I used a polarizer to remove the glare to showcase the lake's deep blue water color.
