I'm not sure where to start with this one.
My friend Val was out bass fishing in her canoe and this just appeared to me. I also have a copy taken in landscape, I prefer this one.
Ontario is full of fresh water lakes, this is a lagoon off of Lake Euginia. It is private property that has only one small family cottage on it. I happen to be the Girlfriend of one family member. (Lucky me!)
It was such a peaceful day and this scene truly brings back those memories.

An amazing place to be there.
It;s a nice composition with the flowers in the foreground. Great colours.
I would like to see the sky a bit more. I think it would balance this shot very nicely.

Beautiful Landscape ! Good DOF and great colours.

Very nice composition. The flowers in front give depth to the image. Lovely colours and good reflections in the water. Well done!

Hi Kelley, what an amazing scene, so calm and peaceful, but what beautiful colours too. Your POV is excellent. The flowers in the FG just make it perfect. I like it a lot. Well done.

Hi Kelley, this is a beautiful landscape shot. The colours and composition are superb. Great exposure and pin sharp. The foreground is brilliant and the angle of the river perfect, just leading the eye into the picture. It's a stunning image, wish I was there! :)

Hello Kelley

Awesome perspective. I love the flowers and rocks in the foreground. Extremely well composed. Congrats on an outstanding shot.

Gorgeous photo, the colours, the DOF, the definition. I love the reflection on the water.

I also think that it's a good idea to put no more sky than this.

Take care, Yan

This looked OK in the thumbnail but the full image is OUTSTANDING! I love the very simple subjects and the bright colours. Very sharp and clean as well.
Well done.

Excellent photo.

The colors are incredible! WOW!
The composition is brilliant.
Such a cool warmth - that's the only way I can describe it. :) Lovely, lovely, lovely!

Very beautiful, Kelley.
It's looks peaceful and calm.
Very well composed, good details and lovely colours.
Great work.

beautiful landscape :o)
gread colors and perfect reflection
in the water.

Beautiful and peacefull! The colours are so good

With this well composed image and the angle of your shot, Kelley, you have rendered perfectly the serenity of the lagoon. The colours are gorgeous with the right amount of yellow in the foreground. It would be nice to revisit this place in autumn when the leaves have turned colours, and see what composition you choose. Too late for this year, I am afraid. Smile.

Voilà une photo que respire le calme et la sérénité. C'est bien agréable.

Hi Kelley
This is a beautiful photo.
You have titled it perfectly.
The peace and serenity of this place really comes out in your shot.
The composition is really well done and the colours are excellent.
The depth of fiels draws you into the picture and you feel that you could almost jump in and have a swim.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Hola Kelley, estaba viendo tu garleria y me gusta muchas de las fotos que tienes... te voto a esta, porque tienes el primer plano de las flotes ... pero toda en su conjunto es preciosa... buenos colores... Saludos Sira
