Lake Morskie Oko is the largest and fourth deepest lake in the Tatra Mountains. It is located deep within the Tatra National Park, Poland, in the Rybi Potok Valley, at the base of the Miêguszowiecki Summits.
The peaks that surround the lake rise about 1,000 meters above its surface; one of them is Rysy (2,499 meters), the highest peak in the Polish Tatras.
In the past, Morskie Oko was called "Rybie Jezioro" ("Fish Lake") due to its natural stock of fish, which are uncommon in Tatra lakes and ponds. In the clear depths of the water, one can easily notice trout - so called "famine" trout - that live in the lake. The name "Morskie Oko" translates to "Eye of the Sea"; this is derived from an old legend, according to which the lake was connected to the sea via an underground passage/wiki/

Cudowna fotografia krajobrazu! Przepięknie uchwyciłeś odbicia w wodzie, które dodają scenie zupełnie nowego wymiaru. Brawo!

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. It is well divided, the sky, the mountains and the lake. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

I love this image for you have captured the moment so precisely in a finely composed shot of serene lake with lovely backdrop. The mirror reflection adds much interest as strong focal and lovely tones in good clarity and superb contrast. Great vision, Congrats

A very attractive tranquil scene nicely captured under a sympathetic ambient light. The clear blue sky makes a splendid backdrop for the whole. Excellent realisation.

Fine panoramic view of the Tatra Mountains mirrored in Lake Orskie Oko's clear waters. This scene could easily be one in our American northwest - granitic mountains, alpine forests and Nature's design.
Would enjoy camping here and sauntering around the wilderness.
Thanks for sharing

Quel beau paysage. Une vraie carte postale. On pourrait presque se croire en Suisse. Le point de vue est superbe et donne une très bonne idée de l'amplitude des montagnes.

This is a beautiful picture from what easily must be the most spectacular part of Poland. The perfectly quiet surface of the lake has created excellent reflections of the mountains. The composition is well balanced and nicely framed and the colours are very well saturated.
