'Colorful Blue Lakes Landscape', a fine art landscape photograph by Lynn Cyrus / Cascade Colors. The beauty of summer in the San Juans range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains is showcased in this scene taken in early August. In a year of exceptional wildflower numbers, a variety of flowers fill much of this meadow beside lower Blue Lake, within the Mount Sneffels Wilderness Area. This preserved wilderness, also within the Uncompahgre National Forest, is found on the slopes of Mount Sneffels. The peak of Mount Sneffels, a 14er (fourteener), can just be glimpsed in the upper right corner of this image, mostly covered in clouds. Mount Sneffels rises between the mountain communities of Ouray and Telluride. This image is filled with color, from the bright tones of the wildflowers in the foreground, to the varied earth tones of the mountain rocks, to the rich green hues of the alpine meadows, to the vivid aqua blue waters.
