The Upper Lake in Kananaskis Country, the Rockies. This Canadian Valley is a magic place - it is close to Jasper and Banff National Parks, but it is not so famous and touristic. I really enjoyed my few days of trekking in Kananaskis. This photo was made early morning before sunrise. Water was still calm with great reflection of surrounding mountains.

Superb shot of a nice landscape
Many reflections and I like all these V-shapes
very dynamic owing to the lines of trees that are converging towards the mountain
well done Piotr
have a nice WE

Oh, is that ever breathtaking!
Fabulous light and color, unbelievable clarity and sharpness with remarkable detail. I especially like the way the land on either side makes a vee toward that incredible mountain. The reflections are simply awesome and I LOVE the light and shadow on the center mountain range. My gosh, what a beautiful place. And a fantastic photograph. My great compliments and many thanks,

Odbicie doskonałe a do tego ujęcie wystających korzeni sprawia, że lustro nie jest nudne, fajne fajne.

Beautiful image. Fabulous mirror image with the inclusion of the branches etc in the foreground to hold the eye within the frame. The wonderfully clear air makes this area an absolute paradise for photographers.
Unfortunately for me, when we were there some years ago, the air was thick with smoke from forest fires. This image shows me clearly what we missed :-(

hi Piotr, good to see you posting again :)
I just commented on a photo from the other side of the world, but I think the two images have many things in common, mostly the effective capture of a majestic landscape. I like a lot how you have used the dead tree to fill the foreground, while the mirror-perfect reflection doubles the effect of the "triangles" of the mountain and forest. I'd try adjusting levels and curves a little though, at least on this screen the image could use a touch more contrast. but that's a minor point.

weszlam na Twoja galerie i rzeczywiscie Twoje zdjecia sa zdumiewajaco piekne, szkoda tyko ze taka masz duze przerwe dzialania na TE. Zawodowe obowiazki z pewnoscia nie pozwalaja Ci na powrot do TE. Mysle ze niebawem zobaczymy Twoje kolejne piekne zdjecia. Bardzo podoba mi sie to motto, ktore zacytowales.
"The motto for my journeys is a saying by Asian nomads:
"What you've heard about for a thousand times is worth seeing at least once" Bardzo mi sie ono podoba i zgadzam sie tym.
Piekne jest to zdjecie jedno z Toich prac.
