Riding from Patzun to Atitlan there is an unavoidable moment of the first view over the lake. That's here and te view is magnificient. Also magnificient is the forcast of a long and smooth down hill bike-ride over a brought paved road.

Good shot from nature. I like the deep fog covering entire background and the person (your friend cyclist) is reflecting himself to sunlits.
I can imagine this shot without roadside and the person on it.

Wonderful view, very well captured! I love the dephness with this vegetation in foreground and the detail of your friend in the corner of the composition. Very nice layers of the hills in the background.
Sure, it must fantastic to feel the emotion of a long and smooth down hill - specially after a the effort of a problably long up hill.
Well done and thanks a lot for sharing,
Have a nice weekend,

What a beautiful scenery is this!!! The hills in the misty whaether look terrific. The attitude might be aroung 500-600 meters from the sea level, I suppose..
Good PoV and well composed image. Thanks for sharing...
CORRECTION : Sea = Lake.. Sorry for ......:))

Dramatic framing and landscape. Powerful lighting effects with this shot into the light. The strong contrast works well here and the slanted angle addes impact. TFS

Gerrit, this is a great perspective and composition. We look down on the lake from the viewpoint of the cyclist. The person adds human interest and is perfectly positioned in the frame.

Mooi zicht in de diepte met een gaduele mist die het landschap opslokt, goed bijeengebracht met de wel doortekende contrasterend voorgrond in volle zon en de fietser in de hoek.

- An impressive point of view, the fog, in background still adds to the relief of this beautiful photograph, cheer!

I remember this lake, Gerrit, with that fog over it, I like how you composed with the triangle areas on lower left, in stronger light; maybe it would have been even better to show the biker riding the bycicle; certainly a lovely photo! TFS, Daniel
