[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The sun was barely up, there were fog patches everywhere and when I saw this lake with the dead trees and mist, I couldn't help but stop for a photo opportunity. I cropped out the shoreline, then framed and that's about all. I thought this lake looked so tranquil even a little haunting.

Location near Bragg Creek, Alberta

Hi Janice,
Almost black and white capture, I like it alot. Thanks for sharing. Rick

Nice atmosphere and use of the light.

Hello Janice,
A very moody capture that in the thumbnail appeared to be black and white...
I like the composition and the feeling of depth, and the morning fog adds to the atmosphere!

Hi Janice

Quite a pacefull and tranquill place, indeed.
Perhaps a little grimm or spooky, due to the late moment in the day, but the mist over the water does create a wonderful atmosphere.
The dead trees add to the overall composition and their reflection in the water is very nice.
Very well framed and composed, too.
Bravo and TFS

Hi Janice,
It is almost a b&w photo! Love the mood captured and the composition. The fog and the dead trees gave the photo that extra moody feel to it.

Howdy Janice,

"Bogsmoke" eh! I was sure we had a B&W shot here. I like the starkness of this shot! The dark silhouettes! The dark far bank. And the only light in the sky above and the water below!

Well seen! I like the PoV. Tfs, Jay

Hi Janice,
I recently reviewed a similar shot that Tim Epp uploaded and yours is equally good for the atmosphere that it conveys.This is a hand held shot,well done for that alone but also for the details in it overall.I have seen places that look like this as well but have never photoed them,its high time that I start.TFS.
