Crystal Clear Sylvan Lake

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

I was on a trip to Yellowstone National Park with my son Luke who was about 8 at the time. We discovered this lake near the north shore of Yellowstone lake and I was mesmerized by how the water was gin clear. High mountain lakes will always have fallen logs in the water. The challenge is to give the illusion of those logs going under the water and into the depths of the lake.
