Tso Moriri (4600mt)
and an eerie silence
the lake without waves
is animated, at times,
by a slight breeze
and changes shape
by the running clouds.
The sun burns
and only a passing cloud,
make you realize
to be as high as the sky.
Because are not the mountains
to betray the height,
they are rolling hills,
only some, more proud
show off a snowy hat.
It’s an unreal place
between water, sky and silences
only at night
the wind begins to rise
destroying the magical world of reflections.
The silence is now broken
by the slight rustle of the waves
and the air is piercing.

Un riflesso fantastico, sembra impossibile che l'acqua sia così ferma, complimenti.

Hello Luca - I am amazed at the clarity of the water in this mountain lake, like crystal. We see the under-surface detail as well as the wonderful symmetrical reflections. Magnificent scenery and a fine capture. Best regards rosemary

reflections in the water are very well rendered on an image of excellent sharpness and with pleasing color contrasts.

Fantastic landscape and superb mirror effect. The clouds on the surface seem like foam floating by. The use of the wide angle lens and the fabulous light you captured make for a dynamic visual impact. Great picture.

Admirable symetry in the still water and i like the water transparency at the bottom. The nice white clouds look like volcanoe fumes.
