It is a small lake on about 10000 ft altitude and in the border of India and Nepal. The marking stone of border line you can see at mid of the background. The morning light on it made this small lake just as heaven.'Kali' means black and 'Pokhri' means pond or lake.
There are some lotus type flowers in left side of this lake. In background there are some colourful prayer flags. The faint shadow in foreground is created by some long stems which are out of frame. The whole atmosphere attracted me that time. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you like it.

This shot is perhaps not much sharpened, but I like the reflections you are captured, the landscape paints, the tranquillity mood.
Sorry, no more pts today, I notice that only not that I posted five critics without pts!

The reflections of the landscape on the water offers us a nice game of horizontal symmetry, in a simple but clever composition where the water works as a blue magnificent mirror.
Excellent idea, and excellent work.

nice the view of the lake with the reflections to make the scene even more interesting.I like the calm and tranquil atmosphere as the brilliant light that falls on the place.Well done.

this is trully graphical and attractive. The calm water works perfectly as a mirror. Love the contrast between the green and blue and the general luminosity. Pleasant to look at, well done!

Beautiful place, beautiful photo, simple but great composition! Amazing reflection! Great light management and beautiful colours, the prayer flags are a fantastic "detail"!

I know that many people trekking through Kalipokhri. The altitude, the high mountains not far away, the green fields, all invites to meditation and prayer. Beautiful image, great light, lovely colors and excellent reflections.

Ciao, have a nice time!

una ripresa del lago in altitudine con tanti colori e dei bei riflessi.
ottima l'inquadratura come pure la definizione.
passa una buona giornata
ciakgiak (30421) 2009-09-24 9:19
this is a really splendid view of this lake. the colours and the reflections are fantastic.
I like a lot the surface of the water and the incredible peace that there's in this place.
Congratulations and TFS.
feather (51130) 2009-09-24 9:29
I am always attracted by reflections and the surface of the pond is so still, the reflections are almost perfect. I might have been tempted to crop some of the bottom to make more of the symmetry, although that is probably down to personal taste. The light is very good and the touches of other colours from the prayer flags is an eye catching feature of the scene.

Splendid capture! The reflection on the surface of the water add a lot of beauty to this image. I also like the colour palette you have captured in this shot. Nice work and thanks for sharing

Bonito reflexo em tons de azul e verde , boa simetria de foto ,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
pablominto (53744) 2009-10-15 21:11
This is a fine mirror effect!
I notice that the saturation of colours increases in the reflected image, like some kind of polarizing filter...
A balanced layered composition with good details!
Angshu (56406) 2009-11-10 20:29
Very nice mirror image...the sky colour in the reflection is much better than the original. The small pole and the reflection in the middle holds the shot well in my opinion. A simple, clear shot, nicely executed
pajaran (53725) 2010-08-14 22:29
Lepo mesto i trenutak ...
Lep pogled na jezero i reflex na obalu sa ukrasima, dobar prikaz lepim bojama i fotografijom.
Nice place and time ...
Nice view of the lake and the reflex to the bank with decorations, a good view of beautiful colors and a photo.
All the best.
