[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture of 'Lac des Bouleaux' in Mont St-Bruno Park. The day was splendid as the colors of fall was near it's peak. This lake is situated at the end of the park, so there is usualy not a lot of people there (ha! tranquility). There was just a small breeze making for a decent reflection of the trees on the lake. The dock on the other side is for observation purposes only.

Tech Talk:
I used a polirazed filter to eliminate glare and bring out more vivid colors. Not much done on the picture. Sharpen a bit in RAW, converted to JPEG and resize for posting.

Bonjour Patrick,

Très beau paysage d'automne, les couleurs sont fantastique et j'aime beaucoup la réflection dans le lac. Bravo pour cette belle photo. Alain

Hi Patrick,
Stunning image with beautiful fall color. The reflection is awesone with just enough riples to give it that beautiful efect. Love the composition but would probably bring a little more contrast in th colors of the trees.

bonjour Patrick,
j'adore tout simplement. Cela respire le calme, le respect de la nature. Les cuoleurs sont chatoyantes..superbe.

je reviens du canada, c'est vraiment un beau pays.

This is a lovely autumn shot Patrick. I love reflection photos. An alternate option may be to make the composition a little tighter by cropping the top and right side. It would simplify the composition to its primary elements...the white dock focal point and the colored trees with their reflections.

Thanks for sharing a lovely scene.
