    What I like about this picture is that you don’t know what’s on the other side of those rocks at the central focal point of the picture. It almost looks like it would just drop off…very pretty with the light fluffy clouds, too. 🙂

    • It does rather drop off beyond that point, Nathan…there’s a boulder field that is something of a pathway that leads up from the lower lake…fortunately, there were several other paths that led up that part of the mountain and my time on the ginormous boulders was tolerable. I’m glad you enjoyed the photo….

  3. Reflection, contrast, color, mystery, texture, depth… what does this picture NOT have? I love it.

  6. Wow! Clouds, water, reflections, rocks and a bit of green… what more could you ask for. Can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something extra special about this one. It just popped when I pulled it up.

    • I’m glad you like it so much, Gunta…I was very pleased to have found another beautiful place…and especially happy with the way many of the photos turned-out…. Will have more in a bit. Thank you for your nice words. 🙂

  7. You’ve got a great photograph there Scott, it’s beautifully framed. And I particularly like the reflections of the trees in the water.

    • Thank you, Finn…I was hoping the light wouldn’t be too harsh on such a bright morning…I’m glad you enjoyed the photo. 🙂

  8. What an amazing lack of trees. Is this area recovering from a man made catastrophe, like mining?

    • Well…this is just below the top of the mountain, which you cannot see from this angle, as it is behind where I was standing to take the photo, but it has fallen apart in all of those granite chunks and boulders…there are many more trees leading up to and below this area. I’ll be posting more pictures, in a bit, that wil give you more of a perspective of where the lake is actually situated.

  13. so much going on in this image you have to scrawl all over it

    • I suppose it is rather full, now that you mention it….

      • no I mean it engages me – I enjoy things you look at more in depth. The limits of 2 dimensional conversations – my apologies for the confusion.

        September 24, 2012 at 10:20 pm

        • Well, I’m glad it’s engaging…thank you. 🙂
