Underwater, on the surface and in the distance

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
Underwater, on the surface and in the distance
Underwater, on the surface and in the distance
I used a CP (circular polarizing filter) to get the view under the water view of the rocks and stick as a leading line pointing to the cloud reflections and the mountain in the distance. Taken at Lake Beauvert, Jasper National Park, Canada.
