    Since I camped several nights at this small lake, I had the chance of taking quite different images, not all of them are really good.

    But I thought it might be interesting how the appearance of a place can change with light, weather, perspective and lens.

    1: Some snow.

    2: My tent the next morning after most of the snow is gone again.

    3: Calm water and wide angle the same morning.

    4: A close up of the scene above.

    5: Morning sun on another day.

    6: Ripples and mountains.

    7: Wide again in the evening.

    8: Evening and calm water.

    9: Close up of the scene above.

    10: Just a dark evening.

    Such a beautiful spot! I don't think I can even narrow it down to a few faves.

    My favourite is 6, "Ripples and mountains", with ripples on the surface of the lake, and a repetition of the pattern in the clouds. What a wonderful coincidence. And inbetween all these light blues, there is the STRAIGHT line of the far bank with its yellow grass, followed by wonderfully diagonal lines and soft curves of the mountains behind,the brown colour of the ground interspersed with the ragged shapes of the grey rocks, all of that extended by the stretch of sheer rock and then the snow dusted higher mountain. All in all, to me that photo ROCKS the most! :D

    Though all of them are such pretty sights!

    Of course I love your pictures but I have to ask... your tent... doesn't it have a bottom sheet to it? It looks like it is open to the bare ground??

    Are you sure? The triangular storage part (the "porch" as it were) may not have a bottom sheet, but the part where there is the red sleeping bag sure looks like it is NOT open to the ground. And I am SURE it is not.
