OMG, Yellow! I knew it did well but never ever expected a ribbon, thought of TT instead. Thanks to all voters and commenters, YOU MADE MY DAY!

Wonderful shot! Great to see 2 photos from the UK in the top 3. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful country.

I love this, it has such a serene beauty. A very well balanced image, I could stare at it for hours. Many, many congrats on your first ribbon and new PB, Kees.

I've never been there, but I thought of the Isle of Skye immediately upon seeing this.
Congratulations on the ribbon.

Lovely shot.. Bump. Imagine this with no wind on those waters and having more reflections of those ridges . The light just marvelous. Smoke a further plus and a perfect tourist shot. I want to know where this is and go there

Makes me think of Frost: "These flowery waters and these watery flowers / From snow that melted only yesterday..."

Gorgeous scene. Do they have internet access? If so, I'm moving :-)

Nice shot. This is one of the better or best entries in this comp in my humble opinion.

I really like the role the smoke plays in this. Really compliments the clouds.

I would want this view each day Kees. It feels like any moment a knight on a horse might come into the picture. And way back there in the back, I think I just saw Nessie :). Should score very well. - only commenting.

Beautiful. Where is this? 9

No one can say this is not a nice photo, but it doesn't appeal to me in any way, The composition also looks a bit compromised which harms the lake a little bit. But I'm not from there so I don't know how you could've improved it. 8
