The Fraser River is at it's lowest right now but this sand bar won't be accessible for long as the spring thaw will bring water down from the mountains. I was attracted by the simplicity here and including the long slender dried branch added a touch of time and depth with the diagonals providing some interesting energy to this scene.
This may be my last post for a while as I will be otherwise occupied with various projects and travel. I will, however, be stopping by occasionally to take a peek.

Je suis très heureux de voir cette image car je suis passé tout près de ce pont il y a deux ans.
Une très belle lumière et de beaux reflets dans l'eau.
Je te souhaite un bon dimanche.

Nice one Gerald
Like you say good FG interest with strong diagonals that give a sense of movement even though it is quite calm. Have a good trip.

I protest! You cannot call this picture 'simplicity'! Because it is a very well elaborated composition, with a perfect framing, a skillful management of light, a top notch exposure, a beautiful mirror effect. Congratulations!
We'll miss your pictures but I wish you a pleasant journey.

Simple but beautiful, Gerald.
Wonderful sky, stunning reflection, good foreground interest. The colour tones are wonderful, and your saturation and contrast levels very judicious. Great DOF too. A lovely photo.

Fantastic piece of landscape photography, with amazing reflections and perfect clarity! The inclusion of the bridge is a great "bonus"! Great framing and composition, perfect light management, fantastic colours, very high quality and definition!

un paysage vaste mis en valeur par ces reflets de nuages sur l'eau et cette ambiance de calme

An amazing play of light as the sun is lowering toward the horizon!
The calm river serves as the perfect mirror and the diagonal shoreline adds dynamics...
A fine peaceful landscape, where my eyes at last goes to the silhouetted bridge in the back..!

Not as simple as your title, there is a bit going on here with so much details, the sandy foreground for example has details patterns, a few branches to make it interesting, the reflection of the dramatic sky is fantastic. Good light, good colros, and lovely composition.

Strong color but very nice.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
A wonderful and good sharp landscape shot with amazing different color tones and excellent lighting.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Easter weekend,

The calm Fraser River makes a splendid canvas to capture the striking reflection of the dramatic sky.
The distant bridge and rugged peaks make a lovely backdrop and the richly textured beach an excellent lead-in to this special landscape.
