[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at El Chorro southern Spain.
This is a straight shot with only a slight levels tweak and a little Hue & Saturation. I cloned out some phone or power lines.
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 look 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.

Hello Mark,

Beautiful composition, superb lighting and colors.

Great job, thank you.

Excellent shot. Very impressive landscape and good composition. Why did you post it under UK/Manchester?


A very good shot. I like the clouds as they mimic the shape of the rocks. I also like the atmosphere offered between the cliffs as the the water that flows into the lake appears to be white water class.
Nice colors, excellent shot...
