Mist is a thing that makes a difference between sunrise and sunset shots. Plus of course direction of the sun is not the same providing different angles. I'm just usually too lazy to be ready with my camera that time of day.
With a carefully chosen angle lake Iidesjärvi looks like wilderness. In reality this is about a mile from Tampere city centre.

a beautiful morning with a calm and peaceful atmosphere. It feels like nature waiting for something, snow? Anyway, this is the reward for being an early-bird, an excellent photo, well done!
Have a nice evening.

This is a beautifully conceived shot with an engaging little essay. Moreover, like a warm baguette just pulled out of an oven, it is fresh, a virtual weather report from your sector of the world.

the golden light from the left, the reflections, the soft warm light, you couldn't have asked for anything else.

Hello Kari - This does look like pristine wilderness and I am impressed to read that it is so close to a city centre, what a lovely location to have on your doorstep! The shot is absolutely lovely, the light, the mist, the reflections all unite in a moment of perfection. Very special, I love it. Rosemary

Great light and colours that evokes feelings of autumn which is descending in the UK too - though it is grey and wet rather than golden brown at the moment!
A great image - love it.

fascinating the view as the presentation of the warm light as the morning mist as falling on the area.I like the dreamily atmosphere, the created reflections, as the beauty of the scene.

a great autumn picture with a slightly mystical atmosphere that looks like in a dream.
With kind regards from Sweden

Beautiful image Kari. The light is heart warming. The wisps of fog give the image softness and a dreamlike quality. I love the warmth of the colours which the gentle blues of the water and sky do not disturb. Regards. Klaudio.

your point of view is very effective both for an exquisitely balanced composition and for giving the impression that this place is remote and wild. I like very much the way you captured the details of the scenery, the texture of the water and the phenomenon of the mist but I think this picture is really about the light. You've used it with marvellous subtlety and managed to capture and render the poetry of the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

You're so right, mist adds that wow factor to a sunrise shot and that sense of mystery that we all look for when wanting to produce something different and eye-catching. The golden light is exquisite, as are the reflections and the silvery blue tones on the water. A stunning, ethereal shot, congratulations.
Best wishes, have a happy day

Nice warm tones for this lake, nice reflections on water and fog, tfs.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the belt of morning mist which is spreading on the lake and trees dyed autumnal tints. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combination. And, the reflection projected to the lake draws out a good atmosphere in this image.
