Natural landscapes: alone with the lake


I was wandering the leafy, restful lakefront grounds of the Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences when I spotted a solitary bush/tree against a backdrop of lake and brooding sky.
This kind of minimalism usually makes for compelling pictures and that’s certainly the case here. The composition is so uncluttered that pretty much any kind of sky would have worked. In this scene, the sky offers the only significant colour.
Nikon D7100, tripod and, probably, a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
