[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a 3 shot pano compilation of a small lake we found last summer while exploring around the Coquihalla Mountian area. The government topographical maps shot this just as a small body of water with no name.
Very few people visit this lake in any given summer, in fact there is very little in the way of a human presence at all in this particular area. What you see now is how it would have been over generations past, and yes there's even cell phone coverage here.
looking at my EXIF info, I can't for the life of me figure out why I chose the settings I did, other than perhaps I forgot to adjust before taking the shots.

This small pano doesn't really do it justice, so I'll add a link to an 1800x750 pixel version. Just paste this link into your browser:

Hello Tim,

Your 3 shot pano compilation of a small lake gives a excellent composition and wonderful colours, it's almost a post-card from this area, very depth and perspective too.
Very well done!

Hi Tim,
This is just phenominal, colors, composition are all just WOW. Thanks Tim.

This is a great compilation Tim! The large version is stunning! You are spoiled you know!? I think you do and you take advantage of your area at every opportunity. I'm so glad you share it with us. This is just beautiful and technically superb.

Just gorgeous, nothing else I can say that hasn't already been said, other than wish I were there to see it in person!

Tim this place looks like its straight from a film set! The deep colours in the sky to the picture perfect lake with reflection and all.

You've done a great job with the panorama even though you didn't use the perfect settings it has still come out brilliantly. I love the detail and colour in this scene would love to see the full size image in print, bet it is stunning!

Excellent job


Very scenic-looking area.
Well captured with good colour saturation.
Good stitch of the 3 images
Well done

Really beautiful view, Tim!

Hi Tim,
The LP version looks really wonderful it gives you so much more detail and the colors seem to come out better as well. The fairytale like landscape is just awesome. The fresh colors early summer are perfectly captured.

Hello Tim,
This looks like a fairy tale's landscape. You are so lucky to be able to see those wild places that are so rare. Yes, the settings are a little strange for a landscape but the result is beautiful anyway :) I love those colors, POV and composition. I wish I can swim in this lake right now. It is a dream place. Well done and TFS this jewel,
