[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an image captured on my way to the mountains just before I cross the tree line.

"Tree line" is not an accurate term when it comes to altitude, as the conditions vary with the landscape. In sheltered places you can find trees and forest vegetation well above the line, and it is the weather conditions during winter that are deciding where trees will survive.

The stream we see, opposite what it looks like, is connecting two reservoirs in a line of hydroelectric power plants.

This place is great for angling, that is if you’re not too demanding! What you can catch here is the river trout, smaller than their cousins living in lakes and with white meat, but they taste very much the same…

Good thing with river trout is they come in frying pan size, and if you have a fireplace by the riverside you can have a really delicious meal..!

Hi Pablo,
a great reminder of summer and the sunny days ahead (hopefully!) A very good compositon as always, making the most of the branches in the foreground and the pool of blue amongst all that lush green. A very peaceful scene indeed, all the best for 2008!

Hi Pablo,
Very nice summery landscape to warm yourself in these cold days. I suppose the aspect would be quite different now!

Hi Pablo,
Outstanding beginning to the new year. Wonderful shot. Wish you give us such beautiful images to enjoy throughout 2008, MF. I eagerly look foward to every moment here on TN with you and our entire community.

Hi Pablo,

This scenery of the lake and of the forest give me an impression of tranquillity so someone can relax and think. The reflection in the water is an asset to the photo. The point of view is giving depth to the scenery. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Pablo,
This shot inspires me when I think of my plan to travel to the Swedish mountains to about the same latitude as where this shot was taken. Fine composition with the small lake being framed by the FG bushes and trees in the BG. I can imagine the dragonfly and butterfly life here too. Fresh trout prepared on a campfire: couldn't be better!

Hi Pablo,
A nice capture of this beautiful landscape. Very nice composition and lighting. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Pablo,
I can almost 'smell' the fresh air here! Wonderful summer scene in lovely colours and great depth of focus. I like the reflections in the still water too. It must be a lovely peaceful place for fishing and I'd love to share a big trout with you here! Delicious!
TFS and all the best wishes for 2008!

Hello Pablo! Wonderful point of view. Very nice place. Beautiful colors. Amazing sharpness. Great shot. Master's work!

Hi Pablo,
First of all, I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!
May your landscape images from your beautiful country continue to dispense joy to all of us in the new year!

This picture you took in the summer fills me with a deep sense of serene delight. Pure and unsullied Nature at its best. There is palpable synergy between all the elements -- earth, water and sky.

TFS and warm regards.

Hi Pablo.
After series of winter shots these days we can rest a bit. Wonderful scene with firm quality and taste of reproduction. All is perfect and superb as usual. Bravo and many thanks.
P.S. I am very grateful for encouragement my first pictures. "Alive palette" is my favorite.

Dear Pablo,
Spectacular scenery and captured beautifully, excellent use of the 1/3rd rule, detail is stunning must have been a small aperture f.22 or something? The reflection on lake and the colours are splendid, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Bonsoir Pablo,
Beautiful landscape and lovely colors, excellent POV. and reflection on water, great shot Pablo very well done.

wonderful landscape photo
i like composition, point of view and colours
thanks for sharing

Hi Pablo
It's nice to see a some greenery this time of year. This is a nice reminder of what will be coming our way soon. I shouldn't complain today as the temperature is +5C and sunny. Thanks for sharing a little piece of summer today.

Very crisp and clear Pablo, great color..I can smell the evergreen :)
This place reminds me of a trip I made many years ago in Northern California. We accessed a small pristine lake via a newly cut logging road. Crystal clear waters, & the brown speckled trout were jumping onto our hooks. We pan fryed them just as you suggest, and we spend the night by the side of this "Lake of the Woods".
We had a great time..

Hi Pablo,
an amazing forest landscape,the colors,exposure,POV and DOF all are wonderful.

Hi Pablo,

very beautiful natural place, interesting details and colors

What a marvellous forestscape, Pablo!!
What a lovely palette of blues and greens! I love the sharp crisp details, the intense colors and the beautiful line of trees and their reflection on the stream. A marvellous shot with a gorgeous composition!
Thank you very much for sharing.

Bonjour Pablo,
Splendide image admirablement composée dégageant une grande sérénité d'un milieu sauvage qui ne semble plas hostile.
L'angle de prise de vue permet au regard de pénétrer profondément dans l'image tout en se posant sur différents points d'accroche. La lumière est très belle et fait bien ressortir couleurs et détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Pablo, nice natural framing to this shot of the stream. Great depth of field to give us full visibility of this landscape. Good sharp shot with great colour. (And the faster you fry up the fresh water fish, the better they taste).

Thanks, John
