An other view of the Blue lake in Hatchers Pass. The intersting note is that I am no more than 4,000 feet above sea level and it is Alpine. The further north, or south , the lower the tree line.

I thought by cropping out the not so sharp foreground snow/rock? and some of the OE clouds the composition may be stronger. I darkened the remaining cloud but didn't delete all of it as I feel the photographer probably liked it (?). By also cropping some off the left side the jewel of a lake was put in a relatively better position...out of center. I think the grassy rock makes a better foreground element. Just another option.

All advice worth the price charged! : )
