I like the reflecting clouds, but the hint of what is in the water leads me to want to see more of the depths.....very peaceful....

I love the way you have been able to capture the lake bottom as well - I presume you used a really small aperture for the shot?

18 Mar 2009 1:29pm

@dobbino: Ooops. I am always happy to provide EXIF data for all who ask but I am traveling this week and don't have access to the file. I did use a tripod and my memory (be careful) is that I was shooting at between f/11 and f/14 at around 1/6th of a second. I can't wait to get back and check now...

The diffused light from clouds can also have its attractions... here I see a very fine reflection, it's a good shot.
