I agree with Lucia & Cathy - this is a beautiful landscape image! Sharp, well composed, beautiful colors and the saturated reflection draws you right into and around the scene and then up into the beautiful sky. Got any more of these lying around? Good luck! - Lee #752398

Thanks to all for the kind comments. This image was captured on Thursday, September 2, 2004 at about 8:30 am MDT. The aspen trees are turning early and rapidly. I predict the peak aspen color will be Sept. 10-15. #753541

Not a finalist! Can someone tell me why this image falls short, when compared to the other scenery images that were finalists? #848037
