Mirik Lake : In this shot you can see the famous Mirik Lake in Darjeeling with colorful pedal boats parked at the banks and the monsoon drizzles making its presence felt over the surface of the lake while the sun is making its exit for the day behind the western horizon.The beautiful 1.25 km. long lake is the most attractive spot of the Mirik Tourism Project. The depth of the lake water varies from a minimum of 3 ft. to maximum of 26 ft. The walks on the 3.5 km. long promenade around the lake is a fascinating one. The 80 ft. long arch-type overbridge across the lake is a wonderful engineering skill of the project.Boating facility is also available in the lake as apparent from this shot.

The colourful pedal boats with a swan at their bow form a pleasantly and entertaining foreground for the view of the lake.
The sky reflects its colours nicely in the water.
Best regards, Paul

nice the panoramic view of this section of the lake with the colourful pedal boats with the head of swan on their prow to make the image even more effective and eye catching.Informative your note about Mirik lake.

Nice added the small fan-boats to the lake in scenery, farhat. Added much contrast on colors, otherwise would left a bit dark tone over the photo.
Nice view, clarity anbd DOF superbly collected.

A serene and peaceful scene nicely captured here. The colourful pedaloes make a good frame and help give the image depth. I like the lighting and reflections in the softly rippling waters of the lake.

Mirik Lake, an interesting spot around Darjeeling, good pov and presentation of that place, some treks are possible in the mountains around, never go to that place, regards

Nice repetition of the red white and blue boats which also set up a superb warm cold colour contrast between each other. Excellent sharpness and wonderful reflections in the water. Looks like it was raining? Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon line well away from the centre. Tfs!

There is little sound more beautiful that rain striking water, and because its so evident here that the rain is falling, this to me is a very relaxing scene. The little boats even add to that sense of calm, and their colors are great. Nice one!

Hi, probably one of your best shots here in TE. Like the atmosphere. Vibrant colours. The composition is nice with those colourful boats at FG. Like also the reflected image in lake. The sky is a bit blown out but the overall presentation is just superb. Really enjoyable. Tfs.

Good frame and colors.
The boats add savor of photo.
ourania (31971) 2013-09-08 11:07
the lighting conditions and the way you handled them have created a very moody and mysterious atmosphere as well as a great contrast between the tranquility of the nearest shore and the drama of the opposite side. The colours of the pedalos look surprising in this gloomy setting. You've captured great details and textures all over the frame. I'm very intrigued by the luscious vegetation of the opposite shore and by the quiet and mysterious presence of the houses. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

Another pleasing scene on the lake, the gentle touch of raindrops on the water helps to create a soft and pleasing atmosphere. There's something quite calming about that sound, and it also makes for an interesting appearance, almost like dimples on a golf ball. :) The solid colored boats in the foreground have a strong, but not overwhelming presence to the otherwise tranquil setting. This does look rather dark on my monitor, very heavy shadows in the trees give them a silhouetted appearance. Perhaps a bit more brightness adjustment would liven everything up just a bit, just a personal preference here. Have a great day ahead.

Eye-catching and pleasant sight, feel, comfort, and life
Good resolution with excellent sharpness
A little light in the background is fierce
Beautiful reflection in water image
Best wishes to you
holmertz (41651) 2013-09-09 9:46
The light is almost gone but you still managed to capture the view of the lake and the colourful pedal boats with fine clarity. It's a well composed view where the light rain creates a fine pattern on the surface.

A good framing with a relaxing view and quite atmosphere. Well done!
kato (11630) 2013-09-09 13:03
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the calm lake surrounded by rich greenery and somecolorful pedal boats anchored to bank. The reflection projected to the lake draws out an additional good effect in this image.

Wonderful executed image with fantastic management of light, colors, sharpness, great clarity. Beautiful job. Tfs with this beautiful picture you posted.
All the best and have a great day,
nikkitta (14858) 2013-09-10 12:53
Great are your photos from Darjeeling, this is an original way to present the lake, with the head of swam boats at the FG
The almost dark ambiance is also attractive, quiet and fresh
Well done, congrats
krzychu30 (15498) 2013-09-11 1:43
beautiful place and superb presentation of it!
Despite quite difficult light you were able to capture nicely all colors and contrast between them.
jhm (139944) 2013-09-11 4:49
The pedal boats with swan as driver care for a attractive picture
But also a very nice picture taken with splendid panoramic view about these area.
Very well composition, excellent captured. TFS.
jacquest (18743) 2013-09-12 5:26
Your composition reflects the mood of a rainy day with calm over the water on which the distance creates deepness. The colored pedal boats make a nice foreground and are a reminder of past and future joyous and sunny days.
pierrefonds (57445) 2013-09-12 15:32
The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the paddle boats. The lack of light is giving darker colours. Have a nice day.

Once back from my vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages.
Wonderful panoramic view of the beautiful lake, you show us a POV sensational, with those colored boats in the foreground, curious playback bows with swan heads. Precious reflections on the water surface.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb brightness and sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a good day.

Lot of serenity expressed by those colourful sleeping boats and the reflexions of skies on calm lake.
Thanks for the soothing view!

The lake is quite similar to the lake in Nainital and Mount Abu. I like the colours and composition of the pic. Thanks for sharing.
