On an early morning the highest mountain range in Ireland, the snowcapped Macgillycudddy reeks reflect in a small lake just outside Killarney National Park on the way to one of Irelands most trodden tourist routes, the ring of Kerry.
This lake was hidden from the street and we almost missed it, I had to back up the car to be able to park in a small recess just of the road and walking down to the lake trough a bog. But it was worth it.

un reflet qui donnerai quasiment une photo trompe l’œil, Magnifique cadrage.

Very sharp clean image - well exposed and that boat in the FG is an essential part of the composition. Beautiful clear reflection. Well done.

Well worth the effort! This is a magnificent shot, and so nice to see the mountains with snow on them like this, not something too often seen in Ireland, particularly at this time of year. Such a pin sharp reflection is truly beautiful, with the addition of the many colours offered by the boats. A really stunning image, thanks for sharing.

what a wonderful view. The reflection on the lake are very good and the inclusion of the boa in foreground was a perfect choice. Lovely colors and details.

Picture has nice layers (starts with the boat)
and that creates a nice depth. The open spaces
makes the picture nice calmness. The light
mangement is good: okay the picture has some
overlighted pieces, but this kind of surrounding
is hundred times more difficult to expose, than
a beach landscape.

Gorgeous shot and reflection, Daniel. Love the inclusion of the boat, which complements the mountains so well here. The reflection is amazing in its brightness and clarity as well - a beautiful scene!

Bonjour Daniel ,
Quel moment magique ! Un si beau ciel conjugué avec ce miroir parfait t'a permis de composer cette superbe image , avec la barque bienvenue dans ce décor de montagne . Peut être une légère surexposition des blancs (neige et nuages) .

Glad you didn't pass this one by, what a beautiful setting! Without the note or location description, I wouldn't have guessed this to be Ireland!? Snow covered hillside and lack of lush green landscape....why, this isn't what I know!?? :) Very well composed, even though it breaks the vaunted "rule of thirds" this works extremely well, the reflection is sublime! Great example of going with instinct rather than supposed rules. I like the foreground boat, it's a nice solid bit of subject matter to break the reflection, but subtle so as not to be in any way distracting. Marvelous find and solid execution have provided a very attractive result, thanks for the view my friend. Have a great week ahead.
Al the best,

Another really nice shot, some of the clouds are a bit over exposed, but it is better to have this light and the reflection is fantastic addition to the composition.

Très chouette cette image ! J'aime bien l'effet miroir et la barque au premier plan. Le ciel est très beau et j'aime beaucoup la variété des couleurs dans l'image.
