Canopus Lake is a small lake within Clarence Fahnestock State Park in northern Putnam County, New York, USA. The lake is about 1.5 miles (2.0 km) long and 1/4 mile (0.4 km) wide at its widest point. Immediately to its east is Pelton Pond. The lake is west of Route 301 and the Taconic State Parkway.
The beach at the lake is called the "jewel of the park" and is used for swimming, boating, and fishing. In the winter, some cross-country skiers use the flat surface as a trail.

I always have a hard time finding images to take when the ground is brown and the trees are barren .. so I think I especially like images that make it work .. like this one .. the foreground to background layers of crisp white branches is wonderful .. the white of the light on them give them an almost magical feel .. I love the level of sharpening here .. which can be so difficult with these textures .. love the gentle diffuse reflection .. wonderful March peace ...

Looks like a great setting, a very relaxing lake. I can imagine the beauty at certain times of the year particularly autumn and spring. It seems to be a bit leafless this time of year. I like the sharpness of the scene and mostly the main attraction, the reflected facade of rock rising from the water. TFS.

Very pleasant soothing reflection of the rockface in the calm waters of the lovely lake. Excellnt riffling silver blue colors to the lake and nice somber winter details to this lovely landscape.
