Worth the Effort

Sorry I missed my post this weekend. This will sound strange, but I kept on forgetting to do it. A busy weekend I guess. Thanks for your feedback on Friday's photo. I must admit, I was surprised so many people liked it. I tend to agree with the Famous Uncle Robert, it just seems "heavy" to me.

This will be the last photo of the Flora Lake series. There is no way I'm climbing that mountain again, so I won't be taking any more pictures of this beautiful lake. I did however learn that in order to capture much of the pristine beauty that every photographer longs for, one has to burn a few calories. I look forward to more opportunities to explore the incredible back country that Canada has to offer. Next time, however, I will pick a location I can get to without blowing out my knees.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 10mm, f/3.5, 1/60 ISO 50

I like this, though I was struck by the notion of a garden gnome (not sure if you have them in Canada).. Its more delicate than your other reflections shot, and I see what you mean a bout the previous image being heavier than this. Nice shot

I too thought that he didn't look real at first, that's very interesting but is likely a result of the fact that he is standing on a rock that is actually submersed in the water. This is pleasing, although the light wasn't so great. I know you cannot control the light and you mentioned that the weather didn't co-operate which is too bad but what you do to change the weather?

This is probably my favorite of the Flora Lake series. I love the colors here, and he really pops against the background here.

Hi Timmybomb,

I like the shot, but I don't like that you lopped off his head (reflection).

See you soon!

Beautiful shot Tim. I really like how you can see into the water, the reflection, the sea (or lake) of green and the sprinkle of red. Nice eye.
