Sunrise on Mirror Lake, which is a small lake just north of Osoyoos, BC. THe sunrises are unusually red right now due to a large forest fire that's still burning in Washington State to the south, so there's plenty of smoke in the air.
-RAW converted to TIFF
-Highlights lowered, shadows heightened
-Red and yellow saturation added a bit

Hola Tim:
Hoy es mi primer incursi˛n por Trek y encuentro que hemos casi coincidido con el týtulo de nuestra foto. La tuya es una hermosa toma en tonos ocres que me hacen pensar en el oto˝o.

Does life get better than this? The tones of the morn look like a day I want to be in.
Peaceful capture.Great reflections.

Hi Tim,
Love the colors and the reflections on this peaceful scene.
Well done and TFS. : )

Hi Tim
Wonderful colours, so sharp! The lake with the reflection is so pretty, it is just like a mirror. The bullrushes in the foreground are very artistic looking with the sun peeking through.
I think we have the same smoke from the US fires here too. It's been real hazy for several days. TFS Janice

Hi Tim

A really beautiful sunrise landscape you managed to capture here! Very well done!
I think the exposure is perfect, not too bright on the sunny part, but giving enough details even in the darkest corners. Thumbs up here!
Also great are the POV, the nice details throughout and the whole warm feeling that the picture has.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Tim,
What I realy like are the different layers of monocrome colour in the mountains, so many different shades. This gives a nice feeling of depht. Excelent sharpnes, colours and composition.
Very well done and TFS

Some of my best sunset shots have been due to nearby fires. It is kind of bitter/sweet. This is a really nice shot though. I like what you did to it. It has a lovely warm feel. I love the sharp grasses in the foreground.
