[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While the previous pano composition was taken from the other side of that snowfield you see, this one is a single wide angle shot with "the molar" rising above the lake.
I know that the general rule in this kind of photography is to wait until the begining or the end of the day to get that golden light, but with this scene I found that mid-day worked best as the sun's rays really lit up the water into those aquamarine tones that you see here. It was also very common to have that endless line of puffy cumulous clouds in the distance during the day, so sometimes the rules need to be bent a bit to make a better shot.
I have one more vantage point to share with you all that you could say is somewhat unique and rather challenging to pull off. Stay tuned.

Hi Tim,
You are really lucky to have such a backyard. Mine is just flat and cultivated. I like the lighting and clarity in this photo. The depth in this photo is huge. The tree, the shape of the lake and those mountains in the distance creates that enormous sence of depth. I agree with the best light is earlier or later. But I also find that you nailed the lighting here. The shades are nice and soft and still have color and texture. It is just that the white are a bit too. But nothing concerning.

Wonderful colors! There is something unreal in this picture - as we went to some magic country or moved many years back in time machine. Maybe people are somewhere else, not there...

Hi Tim,
WOW!! Now that's a beautiful scenic vista...Excellent POV and composition...Very well captured...


It sure would be a loss if you hiked up to such beautiful spots and were not a great cameraman. Wonderful...I cannot decided...like a kid with a nickle in a candy shop...


Very nice mountain lake landscape, Tim.
Rich color, interestng composition, and sharp.
Well done.

This is another winner Tim. I agree with you on the lighting bringing out the best of the lake's color. This is really nice. I'll be waiting for coming attractions!
