On the west rim of Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park you can see this view of Wizard Island. The deep rich blue color of the lake is so inspiring. This is a rugged landscape with steep cliffs of the caldera offset by the rounder shape of the island. The contrast of the snow compliments the rich blues of the lake, but it also gives contour and definition to the steep caldera cliffs. The shadow on the lake in the lower right-hand corner of the painting gives a hint of the presence of the caldera rim.
