Hahns Peak Lake, Colorado
Apart from the morning haze making the mountains blue instead of purple,, and the waves being of yellow sunflower rather than amber grain, this seems about as close to a photo version of 'America the Beautiful' as I could hope for. Some vision of our nation as an Arcadia where we live in harmony with a soft and domesticated nature. Of course, in reality, it's plainly visible where our sense of peaceful mastery has gotten us.
