[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most of my lake photographs are from the mountains, but this is one of a few exceptions.

This is Lake Ĺnřya, located in a forest area 30 km from Trondheim in Central Norway. The lake is around 10 km long, but not very wide as you can see in the image.

Lake Ĺnřya serves as the main source of water supply for the municipality of Melhus with 15000 inhabitants.

Hello Pablo,
you ar realy THE reference on TN for your wonderfull landscapes, This one is again outstanding, colors and sharpness are just great, excellent point of view and splendid composition,
cheer and thanks

Hello Pablo,
Beautiful landscape picture. The air must be fresh here. Crisp clear image. POV and composition are great. Very well done and tfs.

It takes time to make out the lake reflecting the hill and the sky, Pablo. The point of view suggests the hint of a house between trees in the foreground.
As usual, a very cool, serene and peace-exuding landscape from the master.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.

You may not post very often Pablo, but when you do it is always an interesting sight feat! A classical reflection and composed in your own special style. Have a good and Blessed Sunday.

Hi Pablo
I wish I could look out my window at this beautiful lake every morning. The lake is smooth like a mirror, the reflection on the water of the hill in the background is so sharp. The blue sky bring the composition altogether.
Well done.
TFS Janice

Hello Pablo,

In one word: "Impressive" What a wonderfull landscape. Great mirror effect in the lake. Very, very nice natural colours. Good POV and BG. Just what Janice said: "The blue sky bring the composition altogether" Nice composition. For myself I will cropped a bit from upper part photo. Regards and TFS BOB
Well done.

Hello Pablo,
If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouln't have guessed that this was a lowland landscape. The clear still air and forest in the BG give a montane atmosphere. Wonderful tranquility.
A fine depiction of a peaceful view that should be a good treatment for the over-stressed members of our society.
Well done and TFS!

Outstanding shot of this beautiful place. Such tranquil environment with amazing clear waters and pristine blue sky. Great use natural lighting and the green mountains and plains looks fabulous. Needs a super eye to notice the reflection, seem to merge so beautifully. Another masterful presentation from you. Wonderful composition. Kudos.

Hi, dear Pablo.
Thanks for marking my modest shot as favorite. I am very pleased. And many thanks for this charming landscape shot. It is simply amazing. Terrific shadows and lights, impressive dark and at the same time rich colours, fantastic clearness of the "paints" and transparency of the image. Reflections of the sky and clouds into the water is superb. My best wishes and Bravo.

Hi Pablo

Just a quick one today.
Another lovely ladnscape from you my friend and one with a terrific composition here.
It's a stunning sight - with that huge natural forest and that splendid lake enhanced by the reflection of the sky.
Indeed the sky here was very beautiful with that great blue color and those small fluffly cloud adding interest and contrast.
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS

whats a beautiful landscape-lake photo
especially i like lighting and reflections on the lake
composition, point of view, colours, contrast and sharpness are great
thanks for sharing

hi Pablo,
Wanderful landscape nicely composed wiht beautiful naturel colors and sharpness, Exellent point of view and good reflections on water, Beautiful lake , very well done..

hello pablo,
excellent landscape shot, the blue sky with abit of white clouds look lovely, well composed shot, lovely colours,
well done,
tfs & regards

This is technically very well managed... sharp with good color and depth of focus. I think the impact of the reflection isn't as effective as it might have been with a bit more of the blue sky separating the reflection from the foreground. I know that often isn't as easy as it sounds. Had you gone closer you would have had more of the house visible, and didn't want that. Maybe it could have been hidden behind a tree.

Hi Pablo,
Really beatiful colours, light and composition. I find the mood here absolutely charming, but I can's explain why!
TFS, José m.

Breathtaking view - amazing clear still water, wonderful rich color, great use of the polarizing filter. WOW!

Hi Pablo,
I like this minimalistic looking photo that cuts to the heart of the subject.I like simple things that are not fussy with an over abundance of details and this photo fits that bill to the letter.The photo has a mellow and peaceful air to it and your colour ,focus and details bring it to life very well.If I had the time and money you can believe I would be happy to visit your country that has many similar landscapes as my own,the things that would be really different would be the wildlife,a must see for sure.Thanks Pablo for this photo. Bob

Hi Pablo.
Sure is beautiful, so calm and those reflections are great. I enjoy the composition of the lake in the lower third and not straight across the middle of the image, sharp, detailed and great colour.

Hello Pablo

A postcard quality image with excellent colour and lighting.
The focus is spot on with sharp details.
The brilliant blue sky with white puffy clouds really make the shot.
The reflections upon the water are beautiful.
