This man made lake near Lahr in Germany exists since 1900 and is a wonderful attraction for young and old. In the summer boats float on the lake and in the winter ice skater glide over the small lake.

Hi Sky,
Beautiful serene looking photo with such warm colors and stunning reflection. Love the way the trees are positioned on both sides of the photo and lead me toward the single large tree in the center.

Hi Sky,
Great view of this lake-scape. Amazing reflection on surface of very calm water. Great PoV. Nice to see some of deciduous trees starts to change their foliage colors. Superb shot.

I think you captured the feeling you have for your pretty little lake. It is wonderfully sharp with soothing colors. It is a strong composition. TFS

Hello Sky

What a splendid and traquill place. There is simply no movement what so ever on the water...everything is stil and silent...no batter way to express this :)
Excellent POV and composition here!
The trees (especially those on the right) look impressive and give lovely colors and tones to the whole picture.
Very well framed and done, all-in-all.

Bravo and TFS

Wow - noch so eine geniale Reflektion in dem stillen Wasser, man muß fast überlegen wie rum es gehört. Vielen Dank und lieben Gruß

Hi Sky,
I'm late in my comments regarding your pictures, so I'll start with this one :) I like this amtosphere you caught. We feel something mysterious looking at it... Very nice POV and contrast with excellent reflection. I just think it is a little bit dark or maybe, I have to get used to my new laptop monitor :) Well done and thanks,
