Natural landscapes: the snowy spring lake


I don’t know the name of this lake, but I do know it’s been the subject of many very satisfying photos — especially because the road winds around it and up a ridge, providing this very picturesque overview. I like the colour version, but there isn’t a lot of colour in this scene so I’m showing you the more dramatic monotone version.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.

  1. Oh yes, the B/W highlights the many aspects of the landscape, Frank, with the moody clouds, landscape features, and wonderful water reflection. A wonderful photo, Frank.
