[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Again, we made up this name "Britton Lakes" as a grouping of 5 small lakes and tarns are a part of the Britton Creek headwaters. This lake here is the largest of the 5 and made for a rather refreshing swim.
Off in another world the 4 lane Coquihalla Highway runs in the valley between this lake and the distant mountains.

Loving that polarizer. I have been toying with mine....Works fine..not like I'm new to them but never used them before...40 years..now I love it.


Hi Tim,
Excellent clarity and sharpness as usual. The POV is well chosen by being able to capture the two shores of this lake. Exposure is well balanced and circular polarizer reduced the water reflection. TFS.

PC :)

Hi Tim,
It is hard to believe there is a highway so close to such a pristine area. How beautiful your image is. The water looks so crystal clear. Love scene.

This is nice Tim. So am I correct in assuming that there are not really any established marked trails in this area. It is so pretty but I don't see any info on the net about it. I suppose it is best for backpacking which we don't do any more. We like 10-12 mile day hikes though. Our body parts are lots older than yours! After being smoked out of that area last fall we are starting to think about it again. Any recommendations? Was Manning Park severely affected by the fires?

This is another great, classic landscape shot... good color, good balance, good sharpness.

Wonderful landscape with nice sky, great composition, sharp and detail - very well.

Another great shot. You have certainly documented the beauty surrounding you. It's amazing!

Calming image excellent composition Tim!
Love the Blue sky (nice use of the polarizer) and the clouds.
Interesting perspective and depth of field.
