This location was really great!! It had a lot of pools of water everywhere making it a breeze to make great compositions. Only after approx 15min that a guard came up to me and told me I wasn't allowed to go to this location. He explained to me that there is a dam near by and usually when they open it up they do not advise anyone. In a matter of seconds the whole place could be flooded leaving me 200 feet below in really bad condition if I am lucky. Too bad because the possibilities of shots are that location was endless. But still glad I jumped that fence to capture a few :)

Huh, I am glad you escaped:-) but how is it possible that they don't put warning signs...?
It's a great view, with an excellent composition of yours: I love those leaves in the foreground, the beautiful dark tones of the water and those clouds reflecting in it. Great clarity, colours so natural, makes one feel there...

often...1 sec , the sky will become overexposing

Superb work! The stillness of this scene is so strong that when I see it I almost want to hold my breath. Fantastic colour and those swirling clouds always add a lot to any landscape. I'm glad you jumped the fence too - sometimes you just have to do it to get something like this. Excellent work!

I like the near-far composition of this one, the two leaves in the foreground really makes it. And the clouds are another plus.

Just cannot take my eyes off it.......simply beautiful and a very fitting title indeed. From the leaves in the foreground to the sky in the background it is a heck of a composition, excellent colors and clarity. Very nice.

bend1k (934) 2013-03-28 5:38
i guess you placed those 2 yellow leaves at the foreground to make it better
pmadhav (38) 2013-09-25 1:23
What a stunning photograph with excellent depth and great light. I love the wispy clouds and the leaves in the water.
