West side of - Blue Lake, Utah
Utah

Shot taken from a ridge located west of Blue Lake on the Utah/Nevada border.   The main lake used for diving is located 3/4 of a mile to the east of the ridge where this photo was taken.  

"Blue Lake is a very popular spot for Utah and Nevada divers. Since it is warm year-round and reasonably clear it is very heavily used on the weekends for dive training, with programs such as the University of Utah Scuba Program. Other nearby high-mountain lakes are clear but cold even in early fall and lower, warmer waters tend to be very murky. Blue Lake's constant high-volume flow of clear springwater provides underwater visibility of up to 40 feet (12 m) at (rare) times, and year-round bottom temperatures of approximately 85°F (29°C). Surface temperatures vary from the high 60s (~20°C) in winter to the high 70s (~25°C) in summer."
