[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another photo taken from our trip up in Northern British Columbia back in August. This hike, known as the Flower Springs Trail, was a dayhike that we did before our main backpack trip as we got there a day earlier than the rest of our group.
This is Flower Springs Lake, which was the first fo three lakes in this valley. The hiker that you can see in the distance is my wife.

amazing clarity to the water reflection.

Hello Tim
A fine capture with a great pov..nice and sharp with very good colours..I may have been tempted to clone out your wife on the left!!. No offence meant!!I feel the blue jacket detracts from the image.
Tfs and Regards

Hello Tim,

Pretty landscape, reflections of the mountain and the sky are splendid.

I agree with Paul. Beautiful shot. Great color. Wonderful reflection. Distracting Human. I would suggest considering cloning out your wife. She is too far away to make this a good people picture....she is only an distracting spot on an otherwise beautiful photo.


Hello Tim,
What a nice place and what a nice reflection photo. I enjoyed a lot.

Hi Tim,
Good to see you post one of your wonderful photos again. The texture on the mountain and the perfect reflection are awasome again. Somehow you always seem to pull of this photo perfectly and you always seem to have the best weather with you. I can partially understand the concerns about the fact that you have your wife in the composition. The color does distract a little, but she also gives scale to the photo.

Hi Tim,
Simply an amazing picture. Reflect is PERFECT. Colours and details are fantastic.
A lovely landscape,


This is a WOW shot!!!
What a magnificent reflection...and the composition created by the converging lines is classic!!!
I kind of like it that we see your wife because we get an idea of the amazing size!!!

Very nicely done of course...and the long reflection into the infinite...clear appearing water and snows so white. A poetic picture.

Hello Tim,
Just a magnificent view! I just love this landscape and this well chosen symmetric composition. Great cloudy sky that just adds some more beauty to this shot.
Best gretings & TFS!

Hello Tim,
Amazing...what a beautiful place. The reflection is incrediable..beautiful color , sharpness and depth. Great shot. TFS

Amazing, avec ce reflet impressionnant et le premier plan qui permet d'en apprécier la grandiosité, une grande réusssite.

I can't tell, but is the dog there too? I always look for your dog as it reminds me of our backpacking days with our labrador retriever. It would be hard to miss your wife with all those angled lines pointing right to her. It is a very strong composition.

Hi Tim,
this is a wonderful photo and your wife is no distraction in the least bit,despite what some have said.With her in the image we get a sense of scale and I think of an old Pink Floyd called "Cymbaline" and the line from that song where they sing "lines converge where you stand-they must of moved the picture frame..."This is a mighty fine looking photo and I see nothing in it that needs to be improved.Thank you for sharing it with us. All the best to you and yours in this now new year. Bob
