Calm Before the Storm by akrasiel Calm Before the Storm by akrasiel
champdood and I stopped for a picnic lunch at this lake just off the highway in the Canadian Rockies. It was absolutely beautiful, and the weather was warm (for being in the mountains) but there was a storm rolling in. It was August and we got snowed on within half an hour of leaving this lake :faint:

This photo won 3rd place in TheFavouriteShowcase's August Travels contest.

It was near-ish Jasper, somewhere between there and Lake Louise. :)

It looked familiar. I am sure I have photographed & painted this scene many years ago. Thank you for the memories.

Nice. I for one would rather see it without the frame, but that's just a personal aesthetic consideration.
