[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We drove north on the Cassiar Highway through British Columbia. It parallels the Canadian Coast Mountains. As the sun was setting, hope dwindled for any more photographs that day. Then we came to Good Hope and saw this! I grabbed the camera and tripod and literally ran down the hill to shoot this before the light faded. The lakes in this area have this amazing color because of the unique sediments on the bottom.

Hi Evelynn,
My jaw just dropped down to the floor. What a beauty. Youa re keeping some realy nice photos from us, but slowly they appear on TN. The refelction, the colors, the light. I would have run down the hill as well.

The shaft of pale sunlight touches the forest like a spotlight and lends unique beauty to this landscape.

The colors in this scene are really fantastic. They stood out even in the thumbnail. That shaft of yellow light gave it a touch of magic. The reflections on that incredible green water are wonderful. All these many shades of green... make this an exceptional vision. TFS. : )

Hi Evelynn,
Very nice capture. This just looks so peaceful and quiet. You have captured the reflection well and the highlight on the hills daws the eye well to the slopes. I'd ove to see this shot as a panorama.

wonderful, absolutely wonderful. great reflection and colours - sorry time too short for full critique...

Beautiful Evelynn!!! well done!

This is so very beautiful, I was taken aback until I looked at the date you took the photo, nothing that green that far "up north" just yet I imagine.
I love the color in this the most, just all that lovely green, and that brilliant light on the trees, excellent work.

hello Evelynn,
Marvelous landscape, looks like a paint. very good colours and composition, I like the reflection in the water as well.

Una Excelente toma con muy buena apreciacion de la luz, ademas de un paisaje explendido.
Te Felicito.!!!


Hello Evelynn,

Pleasant landscape composition, lovely reflection in this very special green waters!

This is a stunning shot!

Its a pity the streams in the corners (Top) and reflection (Bottom) are a bit distracting

Colour balance, exposure and detail is well captured.

It would have been nice to see this shot in a panorama, cropping out the streams

Well Done
