Here again, more pics from the place of my heart: Nahuel Huapi´s National Park.
This is Nahuel Huapi´s lake and the mountain at the back, the one reflected on the lake, is call Colu Mahuida, that means "Red Mountain" in mapuche (Colu = red, Mahuida = mountain), because in summer you can see it all red, because the colour of the rocks.

Nahuel Huapi´s national Park (NHNP) is the first national park in Argentina, and the biggest.

The day I took the picture was a very strange day: the day before I went to ski, a very cold day, and this day it was so hot that I went to the lake. Was a very calm day, sunny and hot. The shore where the pic was taken is call "Bahia Brava", because is very windy, but this day was so so so so calm! without wind!!! a very strange thing, because it was september!!! We don´t have too much hot and sunny days during september, so to be on T-shirt taking pics was too much for me!
Hope you like it!

Hello Brenda,
Nice capture of this beautiful landscape and clear mountain lake, thank you for sharing.

Magnifique, la composition est extraordinaire avec le premier plan qui donne la perspective, les couleurs sont sublimes avec le reflet.

Hello Brenda
What a fantastic view you have captured..lovely composition with the rocks in the foreground..perhaps the rocks are a little soft and out of focus..im not sure how you would focus for this though..
Its just a lovely scene
tfs and kind regards

Hola Brenda,
Linda postal del lago más famoso del país. Me gusta la composición, aunque necesita un poquito enderezar el horizonte.

Hi Brenda,
Great POV, love the reflections...beautiful photo. TFS

Hi Brenda,

Hi Brenda,

A good POV of the Nahuel Huapi lake, of the Colu Mahuida mountain and of the reflections in the water, the photo has a very good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.

Conseguiste una simetría " de cine " con una luz general estupenda.
Saludos Brenda.

Beautiful makes me wish I was There

hello Brenda

great Landscape image with mirror effect, excellent POV
i love to see that little rocks on the bottom of the image,
lovely luminosity of the image, i love the blue colours
of the sky and of the waters, and the clarity of the water, TFS


Thanks for your encouraging comments and compliments for such a beautiful shot! The reflections of the clear blue sky and the white snow look wonderful. But I think this would have been even better if you had followed the 1/3 rd rule and cropped a little bit of the sky to make sky occupy 1/3rd of the picture which would have given it a panoramic view also. Anyways, grand shot,.. you have to love a place to be able to take a shot like this :) . Good work.

Hello Brenda,
This is the most beautiful Lake scenery well captured with the best pov!
good fg element to the far horizon snowy mountains with a great reflection, just brilliant!
very good contrast of colouration and details
well done once again
muchas gracias

Wonderful reflection! Dont mind if I add this one to my favorites! Well done. Cheers Josh Lewis.

Hi Brenda,
Beautiful reflection. Well done. I would cut a litle bit of the sky here and maybe would prefer the stones to be a bit sharper. Can be done in PP easily. Congrats!

Hello Brenda,

We are neighbours Brenda. I love such kind of pictures, but I believe you to (-: It's a wonderful shot. First of all the mirror effect in the water. But also the 3 lines on the mountain. First the treeline, then nothing and at last the snowline. Excellent POV. The clarity in the water, yes that are my favorite shots. I like the mountainlakes very much. They are so clear and fresh. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend and TFS BOB
