[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Wielki Staw (Large Lake).
In the beginning of December we spent four days in Karpacz in Sudety Mountains. I think, that I have never been there before. We had two mountain treks through Karkonosze.
On Friday the weather was beautiful apart from strong wind. On Saturday there was strong wind, a little of snow (but it was slippery - so sometimes we had some dangerous situations), and dense fog (so almost no photos from Saturday).
About Friday's trek. We started from Karpacz,went through Sowia Valley (Owl Valley), Sowia Pass (1164m), Srednia Kopa, Czarna Kopa(1411m), Sniezka (1602m - the highest peak of Czech Republic and Sudety Mountains), Slonecznik, Pielgrzymy, Polana Bronka Czecha and again to Karpacz.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Maciej,

The distance between the lake and the valley is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the lake and of the valley. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
