Today. This is 3 Sisters Peaks in Canmore, Alberta. Canmore is just 10 miles from Banff and the perfect town to stay in if you are visiting Banff - this information courtesy of the trusty Frommer's travel book. We spent 3 nights in this town, and didn't think to look for places to shoot here until the last day. A quick flickr search for "Canmore", sorted by interestingness of course, revealed to us that 3 Sisters Peaks was the place for photography, and we weren't disappointed. After driving through several ski homes - think summer homes for skiiing for anyone that wouldn't consider going somewhere cold for vacation - we we arrived at this beautiful lake. The weather was kind and calm, allowing me to capture this great reflection of color.

Great comp. Did you happen to use any ND or Polarizers when taking the images?

Beautiful HDR shot and brilliant post processing. Did you apply any filter to make the water color like this? http://pixelfest.blogspot.com/
