[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mirror Lake, near Osoyoos BC once again, but this shot is looking more northerly up the Okanagan Valley. Mirror Lake certainly earns it's name in the early morning hours when all is still. The two trees that you see here is a poplar tree (left side) and a large willow tree to the right of the poplar.
A few strands of water reeds were added to the composition to give it a bit of a shoreline feel and some added depth to the image.

Hi Tim,

Another beautiful Landscape, the lake is certainly well named as its so calm the reflection is flawless. The colours are lovely and you are right about the reeds adding depth to the image.

Regards Hilary :)

Imagen muy agradable... buen pov. y motivo excelente. saludos

Hello Tim

Very nice and warm scenario you have here. I like the warm colours and the calm atmosphere. Excellent reflection in the water. I also like the composition with the trees in the side of the picture.

I think I would crop out about half of the sky to get the horizon out of centre. So I made a ws to show you what I mean. - Hope it is OK.

Hi Tim

Nice shot of this very placid scene.The mirror effect is superb.A very good choice of POV . Your DOF is excellent and the colours are well saturated.TFS


Hi Tim,
Super reflection with jsut the right distortion in the water to make the reflection even more interesting. The warm colors look especially great reed and willow tree. I like what Mogens did in his WS.

Hi Tim,
I like the tranquil atmosphere, warm light/colors and wonderful reflections I see. I think Mogen's WS has improved the overall composition at bit..
Very well done.

Merci et bravo...JP
