I used to believe that there was no possible way nature could actually look like this with that lighting.
Then I went to Lake Tahoe.
So...maybe the trees wouldn't be that golden while the water was that blue. But those colors can definitely be naturally achieved.

Still not a fan of obvious post-processing myself, but this sure is a beautiful piece.

Wow, great shot! Definitely putting British Columbia on the bucket list. All of the lakes I have seen pictures are downright gorgeous.

I've been studying this for a while, just this photo, and I'm thinking that this location may play a part in my fiction...
I've never seen anywhere quite as beautiful...

Wow! That's a wonderful shot! I LOVE the colours! :wow:

I have a question: the "Camera Data" says that the shutter speed is 800/100000. What does it mean? :? 

I thought camera's shutter speed could only be something like 1/125 or 1/4000.

Divide by 800 and you get the shutter speed in a format you are used to ;)
