6 months ago I came to see this photo in the beatiful Pyrenees by Loic (bazal) and made a note that I wanted to visit up here when in the area.
In this photo from late September, no snow present, but still the grand landscape and as you can see the same mountain formation. The landscape in this region never stops to impress me with all it's variation from the beaches and plains of Rousillon to as here the high mountains and lake over 2.000m.
A 2 photos vertical stitched presentation. The use of 2 photos make it possible to include details of the foreground as having a large part of the sky
Hope you like it

Bien fait.Bon angle de prise de vue.Le bleu prédomine.Peut-être saturation un rien trop poussée.J'apprécie cette photo.

De superbes couleurs pour un paysage splendide. Ces cailloux et le ciel sont trés bien mis en valeur.

Très beau paysage, avec une belle dominante bleu.

Very nice colours and composition, Jack. I've seen a lot of horizontally stitched photos on TE but this is the first vertically stitched one that I have come across. The stitching is very good. What software did you use? Cheers . . . David

A good idea to use two hotos stitched vertically, it allows you to create a perfect landscape picture. The stitching is perfect. the colors are very nice too.

Beautiful view!, really nice composition to include the colourful stones in the foreground, especially thse seen under the crystal clear water. The colours are so vivid here...
dsidwell (9783) 2005-10-08 9:57
This is a very fine view, Jack! The curve of the shoreline works so well at bringing the eye around the photo. I also appreciate the lovely sky here and the amount of space you've given it.

A very nice place indeed!
Nice framing, good foreground stones, nice lake and sky.

Again excellent use of the stitching technique here.As you explained in the note,-a large part of the foreground and a big sky,-just great!Excellent sharpness and dof.I like
the colors and the calm mood of this mountainscape.
Have a nice weekend,
Rockyboy (20598) 2005-10-08 11:31
It's good I read you stitched this picture verticaly because I didn't seen anything.
Anyway, it's indeed a very nice landscape and you succeed to have very nice colors. The copositition with the rocks in the foreground is very nice. Bravo!
jhm (142808) 2005-10-08 12:13
Again a beautiful picture of the lake, splendid composition, the stitching is very good as always. Lovely sky with this cloudy.
Have a nice weekend,

Good idea to stich two photos together, Jack!
Your composition and angle is perfect, IMHO.
Exxcellent details, crisp and clear and with beautiful and strong, yet natural colours.

Nice idea to take this stone in the composition. What a beautiful light you have here.

I like the rich, navy blue color, in this superb image. Wonderful reflections & sharpness. tfs.

La contemplation, c'est suspendre le temps à coups de beauté.
Très bel hommage rendu à notre ami Loïc.
Très belle réalisation, et quelle bonne idée d'avoir assemblé deux images verticales, c'est splendide.
liakos (988) 2005-10-09 8:35
Hi Jack! A beautiful landscape with balanced colors and good detail. Very nice idea stitching 2 photos vertically. Well Done!
richtersl (3546) 2005-10-09 9:51
This is a beautiful place. The veritcal stitching was a great idea and very well done.
Giorgio (11279) 2005-10-09 11:26
Très belle image des Pyrénnées, joli ciel, peut-être une petite déformation au niveau de la rive du lac, probablement due à l'objectif ou à l'assemblage mais très bon quand même.
nwoehnl (122) 2005-10-09 14:06
Hi Jack - the contrasts and light in this one are just beautiful. I like how the inclusion of the foreground stones adds patterns and colors that blend so well into this utterly refreshing landscape. Again a wise application of the vertical stitching (once in the Rockies I have also shot a few verticals in order to try this; if it'll turn out good you might see it at one time in future).
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-10-10 5:42
Very nice place and a good shot that gives all this water surface.
Good colors too.
carper (96) 2005-10-10 6:07

mumek (20202) 2005-10-10 8:56
Good morning Jack!
Very well composed and captured scenery. Beautiful clouds on the sky contrasting nicely with mountains in the background, super view at the lake. Congratulations
weswang (18223) 2005-10-10 10:59
Hi Jack, You have done a great job to stitch the photo together. I like the grand view of the landscape, the beautiful sky, and the reflections on the water. A nice and sharp image. Well done.
Xalkida (11744) 2005-10-10 18:02
Nice shot Jack.
I like the framing, the depth and the colors. Superb sky. Nice work.
Gregtom (7167) 2005-10-11 2:20
Fantastic shot! I like the composition wit deep focus range, sharp foreground and beautiful blurred reflections in the water. Great contrast and vivid, clear colors. Wonderful job!
summersun (4978) 2005-10-12 5:28
tres belle image, j'aime la grande part de ciel et les cailloux en premier plan.
jemaflor (88161) 2005-10-12 13:03
Very nice shot Jack,
I like this landscape of course, and also the stone on the foreground, beautiful effect on your composition.
faubry (35405) 2005-10-13 3:47
woauh!!!! superbe image , beautiful landscape like all in Norway, i like really! beautiful colors
jbweasle (9373) 2005-10-14 14:13
Hello Jack, this is a beautiful view of the lake. Good contrast and colour in both the land and the sky. I like the detail of the rocks in the foreground as well as the stunning scenery behind.
Gix (3565) 2005-10-18 4:21
excellent use of the stitching thechnique, usually the stitch is horizontal for a wider panorama.
The result is a splendid image with exceptional dof!
And, of course, this place is a paradise!!!
Great work, all my compliments!
bazal (7900) 2005-10-25 5:58
Hi Jack, and thanks a lot for the dedication... I'm glad you enjoyed this place which is one of my favourite in this area (but there are many other ones as you may have seen). Good depth and superb light management. have you noticed the three dead trees I shot during my last visit there ?
aralda (1240) 2006-01-01 10:27
Hi Jack and a Happy New Year to you!
Languedoc-Rousillon seems to be so beautiful in terms of architecture and landscapes! Thanks for sharing this image, and for the note.
