Taken at El Chorro southern Spain.
This is a straight shot with only a slight levels tweak and a little Hue & Saturation.
It was taken from the road above the lake,i used the Tree to add some foreground interest. I would have loved to have gone down to the lake but, i was just passing through, and didnt get the chance to stop at the place for long. The light was always changing and in an hour the place would so different. I think i will go back to this place one day as i think it has a magical look to it. To me it has a look of fantasy world like you see in movies. And talking of movies, the film Von Ryan's Express, was filmed here. And can you see the walkway that is round the mountain, and then up to the bridge with the waterfall.

Hi Mark,
The colors and light just behind the bridge look really magical. Pink, green and blue colors. A very beautiful POV with good depth and really beautiful colors throughout the photo, but especially behind the bridge.

Great landscape perfect depth of field and positioning. Wonderful colors Mark!

Well that must have been a fun bridge to build! It almost looks like a bridge from nowhere going to nowhere. Very interesting. It is a nice shot and I'm glad you were able to share it with us. It is an interesting subject from top to bottom.

Thanks for sharing.
