There is road that goes all around Lake Plastiras and "closes" the circle after about 60 km. On the west side of the peripheral, you can have a pretty clear view of the lake all along the route. When you pass the dam, most of the eastern goes behind the mountains, the lake remains hidden and you have a nice view of the Karditsa plains.
This photo is taken after passing the dam, on the southeast part of the lake, right before, the lake "dissapears" behind the mountains.

What a great landscape with beautiful fall colors. I love the reflection in the water and the sky but something is strange with the mountains...Sometimes I got the same result when I overdo with saturation+sharpen... Generally it's a very nice photo!
Have a nice day!

Very pretty light bringing out the strong reds in the trees plus those interesting bands on the shore line. I like those heavy clouds and shimmering water.

luisafonso (862) 2008-10-20 8:13
Great light here and fantastic autumn colors. The saturation is perfect, but the reflective light over the lake's surface really steals the show here. I love this composition of yours.

jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-10-20 13:01
your PP is a bit heavy, but the result is obviously interesting to enhance the reflection of light on the water, to provide more saturation on various colors, but talking about the sky, this is the part of the photo that make me think it's overdone
mesutilgim (87354) 2008-10-20 14:01
Hi dear Hercules my dear friend,

I can barely believe this is for real. Spectacular colors, a nice perspective and heavy clouds to fill the upper third and make a nice contrast with the land. Magnificent!

Geia sou Hrakli,
A photo quite in contrasts and in oppositions: the colors of trees, the light or the shade on the mountains of the bottom, the horizontal lines of the lake and the curves of the relief or the clouds it very well composed and colors are beautiful.
gracious (20025) 2008-10-23 8:44
Absolutely beautiful landscape well captured and composed with it's outstanding sharpness, wonderful colour and superb details in the shot
a very pleasing and quality image
many thanks for the sharing
kiks (11777) 2008-10-23 8:49
Hello my friend, you know that i admire your work and i must say that i learnd many things by looking at it. But what i see the last time is that your lovelly photo's are getting very color saturated resulting in, for me, to unnatural colors. Ofcourse i understand it is question of taste but personaly i like more your work with the natural greek colors. I would love to see the original of this one.
ElAprendiz (30) 2008-10-24 19:44
Una foto propia de tu estilo, con un gran encuadre y magnificas tonalidades.
El recorrido en zig zag nos lleva en profundidad hasta un cúmulo de nubes esplendorosos. Sin duda, precioso escenario. Felicitaciones amigo
jmcl (14535) 2008-10-25 18:07
Aptly titled. Intense contrast and color .. striking from the thumbnail and wonderfully vast and detailed when opened .. great play of light and dark and subtle autumn tones .. wonderful. take care, John
fkostas (454) 2008-10-27 18:26
To start, this is simply amazing. The clouds are incedible, the colours sublime, the composition stunning....What more is there to say?
vasilpro (41035) 2008-11-01 17:32
Έχεις το χάρισμα του φωτογράφου, η ματιά σου και η εκτέλεση σε κάθε φωτογραφία σου εξαιρετική.
Τα ίδια λόγια έγραψα και για τον ifanik που εκτιμώ εξ' ίσου.
Με θαυμασμό Βασίλης.
