Yea, they really do. But an amazing picture!

You should put the copyright above the water...then you can put a reflection of that in the water as well. ;)

It was quite early in the morning, abt 7:30. I was riding north towards Jasper on Icefields Parkway when I passed this scene. I almost dropped the bike stopping & pulling over. By the time I was set up the road, previously devoid of any traffic, was now lined with people snapping away. I used a polarizing filter on the 24-70mm lens mounted on the 1dII. With the very low angle of the sun there was some pretty dramatic lighting. The polarizer really deepened the blue of the sky which was already pretty blue. Of course now I wish I had set up the tripod & shot several images to stitch together later. . .
