A Particular Place.. for my psychic wellbeing.

If we trust the whole of the photographs which I posted on TN I am not very generous on the landscapes. This one is special to my eyes. This is not Alps or Rocky Mountains but a place really close to my soul. It is there that I took several of the photographs of Mallad Ducks, Red Squirrels, Butterflies and others insects, Black-Capped Chickadees, Gulls, White-breasted Nuthatch, Blue Jay, Muskrat, Wood Duck, Great Blue Heron, etc. which I posted on TN.
The mountain behind is Mount Shefford and the water is a part on Lake Boivin at Granby. I thought that it would be useful that you see a general view of the place where I took these photographs. I took this one at the end of last spring a little before the laying down of the sun. If similar opportunities still arise, I will have the pleasure of showing you other general view of the some places which are so invaluable for me.
Thank you to have plunged in my universe during a few moments.
Have a great weekend!

Hello Luc, that´s a wonderful landscape. I like it very much. Excellent colours, lighting and reflections. It looks like the sour country in Germany. Thanks for posting my friend. Have a great weekend too.

Oh Luc, it is good to see where you spend your time making those stunning photos that you share with us. It could be a little bit like some places in NZ that are covered in bush.
Your setting sun give the scene a wonderful feel to it. It looks so calm and peaceful. Thank you sooo much for sharing this place with us - now we know a little more about you - be careful:)
Kia ora, and have a good weekend too...

this pic is very beautiful. this takes the beholder to a peaceful and tranquil state of mind. TFS!

Wooooow ! What a wonderful and interesting landscape that you have very well captured ! I also appreciate the complementary note… Congratulations Luc and thanks for sharing.

Hi Luc,
An excellent landscape with beautiful light. The composition and framing are perfect. This looks like a wonderful place to be, You are lucky!

Hi Luc, this is a dramatic sky.
The last sunbeams before the hard rain starts?
It looks marvelous, the yellow ist phantastic, golden summer! The reflection makes the shot perfect, thanks a lot for this view, bye

Particularly well done Luc ;-) Excellent warm light and color. Very well composed landscape with a wonderful reflection. I like the overcast skies the give it a foreboding quality. Thank you for inviting me into your universe..if only for a visit :-)

It is a good capture at a great moment with the sun, the clouds in the sky, and the reflection on the water. True, not the Alps or Rocky Mountains, much like my diminutive Ozark Mountains, but still very much appreciated for the little treasures they occasionally turn up.
Kind of you to share a photo into that special environment you personally get to experience!

Hello Luc,

I sat and gazed at this scene for a while.

And in doing so, realized that it is at moments like this, when confronted with nature in such a personal and fulfilling sense, you begin to feel the connection with all things in the universe so intimately, it overwhelms that deepest part of ourselves, and renews our very soul.

And though you may leave the moment, it will never leave you...

Thank you for sharing this, particular place, with us my friend.

Hi Luc, a great shot. I love the bands of colour. The lighting is terrific too, as you have dark skys in the BG yet golden sunlight from behind you, very good effect. I think it could do with a little rotation anti-clockwise but apart from that it is a very handsome shot. Well done.

You are very lucky, Luc. Dont be grateful with us, we should be grateful with you to share this moments and places with us. Very well captured not only the image but the feeling.
Regards, Felipe.

En efecto no son las Rocosas, pero la paz del lugar está bien recogida, con esos tonos del atardecer. No hay colores brillantes, ni aristas agudas, ni nada que llame poderosamente la atención; buen lugar para pensar y vivir.

Bravo. Odlicna kompozicija, odlicni boi. Pozdrav
