You can see here a larger version of the photo.
The church on the backdrop belongs to Blaubeuren Abbey.
Blaubeuren is a town in the district of Alb-Donau near Ulm in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
It has 11,963 inhabitants as of December 2007.
The Blue Pond holds a secret. Her name is Lau and she is the beautiful water nymph who lives at the bottom of the pool. The story is a fascinating one and if you believe try and find her face in the pool as you look into it's depths. The blue is constantly changing from light blue to a very dark blue as the light moves across its waters. It is a small and magical place and it should not be missed if you are in the area
I've made a day trip to Blaubeuren to see the beautiful old city,the mill with the Kloster of Blaubeuren.
The lake is very pretty, especially during the noon time, when the water reflects the sunshine and its amazing turquoise color.
You can walk around the small lake, and its takes only a few minutes.In front of the mill is a sweet cafe.
Unfortunately the cave under the Blautopf is only permitted to enter for scientific personnel only.

Found a nice "opening" in the grove, to take the marvelous edifice and tower, with a reflection over water, Danos.
Excelent combinatin of colors, gree and blue & grey(water and sky), pink roof-top and other tones, dark and bright.
Well composed and light managed.

πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα σύνθεση με την εκκλησία να προβάλλει από ένα στενό άνοιγμα στο κέντρο του κάδρου, ανάμεσα σε πυκνή βλάστηση. Η σύνθεση αυτή ενισχύει το μυστήριο και τον ρομαντισμό της ατμόσφαιρας και δημιουργεί έναν ελκυστικό δυναμισμό. Πολύ ωραίες οι υφές και τα χρώματα, συνδύασες την αντανάκλαση με την ιδιαιτερότητα της λίμνης εξαιρετικά. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό απόγευμα,

Dobar dan, popodne.
U Cupriji je nevreme, pada jaka kisa i grmi.
Danas smo komsije sa fotografijama na TE.
Interesantan tekst o starom gradu sa opisom, lep pogled na plavo jezero i crkvu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i arhitektura.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa refleksom na vodi, lepe boje.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
In Cupriji the storm, heavy rain and thunder.

Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice place and the architecture shown.
Good work, nice captured moment with reflex on the water, beautiful colors.
Nice afternoon and all the best.

Sergiom (56491) 2014-07-31 5:51
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue choisi.Le regard passe entre la végétation pour atteindre cette belle petite église au loin, ce qui donne de la profondeur à l'ensemble. J'aime bien les reflets.
stego (23578) 2014-07-31 7:05

Noel_Byrne (22092) 2014-07-31 10:18
I love this close cropped reflection and how you have framed it perfectly inside these rich green canopy of trees. Really nice result on this in what looks like difficult light.
pierrefonds (55676) 2014-07-31 10:20
The trees are framing well the church. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the church. The overcast sky, does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.
saxo042 (37054) 2014-07-31 12:10
You found a very good spot for this picture, the church is perfectly framed by the thick vegetation here. The spire is beautifully reflected in the mirror-like water and the red roof is providing a good colour against the dark green trees. A very pleasant view.
nikkitta (13921) 2014-07-31 14:23
A super capture preceded by informative note about Lau, like this legends and your time spent at the place
The capture has good natural frame provided by vegetation than just opens to let admire church and reflections
Very well done, regards

Your chosen POV is outstanding here using the trees to frame the church. The inclusion of the reflection adds nice depth and balance to the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness and detail.

You used a gap between the trees to take a beautiful photo, it looks like a keyhole, beautiful church and ideal reflections, a photo with a touch of romantic mood

A tranquil $ picturesque sight in almost diffuse ligthing condition with natural framing directing focus of attention to the imposing church. A thoughtfully composed and exposed shot in natural colours with excellent contrast while the still water reflections lends a lively touch. Great capture and TFS.
adramad (36261) 2014-08-02 4:50
A wonderful composition, to frame the church among the leafy trees, the reflections of it in the lake are fantastic.
A colorful perfect very natural.
The image is very bright with optimal clarity.

Have a nice evening.
jhm (136638) 2014-08-06 4:08
A pity of the white sky, in future your high light a little bit make a less, you shall see that your sky becomes blue.
Excellent perspective and depth picture with lovely colours.
Sharpness and clarity make your picture very attractive.
Nice photo job, TFS.
mirosu (12754) 2014-08-08 6:48
Superb photo, the view to the church is nicely framed by green trees. The reflections in calm water are beautiful.
Very well done.
geoant68 (331) 2014-08-12 3:39
πολύ όμορφη παρουσίαση του Μοναστηριού που τράβηξες μέσα από αυτό το υπέροχο και πυκνό φύλλωμα των παράπλευρων δένδρων.Η αντανάκλαση που σχηματίζεται στην ήρεμη επιφάνεια της λίμνης κάνει την σκηνή μοναδική,
swapankumarroy (2035) 2014-08-14 7:52
Your article is very much interesting. the position you have captured this beautiful image is quiet perfect, excellent reflection into the water and its clarity is superb. Good composition and kept the reflected portion in cetre, surrounded lush green, well color balance and sharpness.
MOST IMPRESSIVE WORK.
best of all and thanks.
PaulVDV (21107) 2014-08-24 8:17
Through the branches of the trees you spotted the beautiful reflected image of the church tower in the lake.
The composition and framing are very good and the colours in the water real pretty. Too bad the sky is quite dull but of course you couldn't help that.
Best regards, Paul
berek (35354) 2014-10-03 18:52
impressive reflection.passes between the vegetation to reach this beautiful little church in distance, which gives depth to the set.
Miguel82 (21702) 2014-10-15 8:54
