Dear Friends...some time back I shared with you a view of what I believe is "Paradise" located in the village of Alresford - South of the UK - Hampshire...today I would like you to visit another idylic spot at the other extreme of the world...in fact at the tip end of the world... in Chile: Chicureo located some 25 Km North of Santiago, the capital.
Hope you enjoy !

Muy bonito panorama of the cielo cubierto con sus nubes de colores tenues. Me gusta la perspectiva al captar el lago en el frente con el color de grama verde en el centro. Muy buen trabajo con la profundidad y el uso de luz. Los detalles en esta foto son bien visibles y la nitidez es casi perfecta a mi gusto. Muy bonito trabajo al captar la belleza de este lugar. Saludos desde Calgary y suerte :-)

Voilà une superbe composition avec un ciel aux couleurs magnifiques, des nuages aux formes élégantes et de beaux reflets.
Bon travail - merci pour le partage et bon dimanche.
Vicky (1442) 2006-10-15 1:42
What a beautiful place - it certainly does look like paradise to me. The light is very attractive and makes the colours bold and strong. Your composition brings out the best view of the sky and the reflections in the water and your exposure has made the whole stunning scene clear and sharp. Outstanding. Best wishes, Vicky

Robert excellent exposure control and wonderful lighting. Truly a delight and feast for the eyes. Very good perspective allowing the clouds to play in the water too.
amoriconi2 (1074) 2006-10-15 2:04
(even if I suspect an heavy postprocessing) the image is absolutely stunning beautiful. Great lights and colors. Great composition.
A lovely place and photo.
Well done and TFS.

Wow! Colours are really great! And these clouds... Really beatiful shot! Thank you for sharing.
deblink (2548) 2006-10-15 2:48
This is a glorious image. The reflection of the sky on the water is superb. The inclusion of the patch of rocks to the right look great. The whole photo is just perfect, thank you for sharing.

Great shot with wonderful sunset colors.Good POV.The reflections of the nice cloudformation are nice an I like the bright green of the lawn.
tjanze (5674) 2006-10-15 2:58
Wow!Amazing light,colors,position of clouds...Bravo! Regards!
Graal (95343) 2006-10-15 3:03
fantastic view, great colours and reflections, good captured a moment and the place for shot. Well done photo.
partha (14020) 2006-10-15 3:15
Wow, what an extraordinary shot.You must use a wide angle lens and that gives lot of strength in it.
sayan (2617) 2006-10-15 3:19
Amazing post. The most amazing is the pattern of clouds. Wonderful diverging effect giving a wide feeling. Reflections and colours are just superb.
gypsygirl58 (1329) 2006-10-15 4:03
This is truly lovely! The reflections on the water are superb, the composition is great with the grasses dotted around the lake. The sky is lovely too, a wonderful bit of paradise indeed! TFS :-)
vapours (8264) 2006-10-15 4:20
Beautiful photo Robert, great sharpness and beautiful colours. Is that a golf course which we are looking at? Thats some very smooth grass if it isn't.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2006-10-15 4:46
This one of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen here on TE in recent times. Simply wonderful. Congratulations.
jasmis (57824) 2006-10-15 5:35
Amazing landscape shown in superb way. Nice compo. Regards.
feather (51130) 2006-10-15 5:42
Before I read your note I was reminded of the previous post from England. It has the same style; the strong contrast and high saturation. Here the light is stunningly beautiful and the reflections superb. The cloud formation is the first thing to catch the eye and the cloud lines all lead us to the centre of the frame from where our eyes wander out to the rest of this beautiful image.
Into my favourites.
efigesta (12188) 2006-10-15 8:32
que linda composicion, colores y punto de vista fantasticos
Clochette (8076) 2006-10-15 9:43
In my opinion, photography art also includes the ability of postprocessing images. I first regard a pic as a rough stone, and after a good processing, the precious stone may look like this.
isabib (1953) 2006-10-15 9:52
Lovely view with an amazing colors. I liked details and reflections. TFS!
MichaelTrezzi (3347) 2006-10-15 10:08
Hi Robert, This is a master piece, the depth is fascinating, from the shore you were standing on up to the horizon. It looks really like paradise. Congratulations. Well done. Cheers, Michael
Mistral (15402) 2006-10-15 12:42
Excellent composition with stunning colours and reflections.

Beautiful scene with nice warm colors.
Personnaly, I find the frame a little to intrusive, specially beneath the image. But it's ony my point of view and the photo remains a good one.
anesugur (18789) 2006-10-15 15:17
Lovely scene... Colors and light is excellent and the atmosphere in this picture is magical...
The reflections in the water looks great.
I like it very much.

vincz (19099) 2006-10-16 3:53
Just stunning... Eveything is so perfect in this picture. Not a vision of paradise but also a true masterpiece in photographic work.
prezntime (3946) 2006-10-16 23:06
My God Robert. This shot stands with any landscape shot I have ever seen. Absolutely astounding. Such rich colors and reflections. The clouds appear as though they are streaming over head at a fast pace. The bushes around the lake are a nice focal point in the mid region of the photo. Super beautiful lighting, all is great with your picture here friend.
bakes888 (18499) 2006-10-17 4:18
Hi Robert. You have timed this shot well to catch the “golden light”. Great use of a wide angle lens also. Thanks for sharing.
jjcordier (73194) 2006-10-17 9:09
Fantastic photo! Great art!
Budapestman (82620) 2006-10-17 12:42

The colors are amazing and the composition is perfect.
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-10-19 8:28
Absolutely gorgeous. Amazing landscape beautifully captured. Sweet light and wonderful colors. Bravo. Regards. Danilo
cam (9041) 2006-10-19 20:34
Something I aspire to do eventually.
The composition in itself has nothing special but the light coming out of it is otstanding,almost alive.The colors are so precise,pure and well saturated,just enough.
The clouds,or I should say,their dynamism is the strong point here,and double effect with the reflexion in the water.
zeca (19762) 2006-10-20 23:38
Wow! Wow! Wow! I can´t say nothing else...
but I will add to my favorites... WOW!
ballyna (1689) 2006-10-21 11:08

This is just a beautiful shot the way you have captured the cloud formation and the reflection on the water is so sharp, the colours are just stunning, what more can i say except (*Excellent*) and i agree with you it really dose look like paradise and 'paradise' looks like your photo i hope well done indeed Robert.
arjun_das (1851) 2006-10-26 3:10

rosaline (0) 2006-10-29 13:48
Excellent shot with a wide ranges of colours and hues. The light was definitely on your side for this shot. Great pov and the dramatic rendering of the clouds gives this picture strong impact. Well done.

A real beauty! What a nice shot man! Super Superb sky!
Lovely colours, I'm especially surprised by the lovely lightgreen colour of the grass, very pretty exposed. Also like the reflections on this niec and calm water, great details.
Superb composition, indeed a real paradise. I'm glad you've captured it!
Burberry1 (6041) 2006-11-03 6:29
This one is even better and truly poetic one!!!!
This is a masterpiece I would say and I am dreaming to be in such a magic place one day...
Signal-Womb (13048) 2006-11-04 10:14

What a wonderful photo!
Your composition is great allowing the cloud to reflect in the water framing the trees and grass.
Beautiful colors and lighting.
designsoul (21492) 2006-11-13 23:03
It's so wonderful, Robert, that the world is made up of quite a few Paradises! And this surely is one of them. An exquisite landscape that no wonder has attracted so many comments -- mine arrives at their tale end but with a deep appreciation... simply superb...the lights, the clouds, the composition... bravo!
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-11-19 6:07
amazing view and colours creating a paradisical view, the shapes and tones of clluds in sky are fantastic, the reflections on the lake also and the light invading creates this beautiful atmosphere.
Edyta_B (8) 2006-11-19 8:23
Hmm and absolutely marvellous, magic and amazing photo again :). I have to tell that You took some Your photos in real paradise... The colours are splendid, lighting - perfect, the sky with clouds is...miraculous even in the water!

Excellent picture. So sweet and smooth colours. Amazing view at the clouds and their reflections.
falcon53 (336) 2006-11-21 15:41
Interesting perspective between the clouds in the sky, and the refelction in the water. Perfect exposure too.
ajcoutinho (568) 2006-11-22 14:49
Great work; the noise reduction worked very well. Beautiful light.

Impresionante lugar y perfecta técnica, has logrado mostrarnos un pequeño paraíso, los colores son fantásticos al igual que la composición, me gusta la suavidad con la que has trabajado las texturas, casi se puede tocar el agua, el cielo es el complemento ideal para que esta fotografía se una auténtica belleza.
Saludos desde Madrid
pady (4800) 2006-11-25 13:45
Incredible light, no doubt you have an aptitude to get all the light from a scenery and so compose a piece of art.
NellyD (1874) 2006-11-26 9:07
Wow, this does look like paradise to me!
What great colours and sharpness, excellent reflection and POV.
Very beautiful, a real eyecatcher!

all the pov are great, and a very good use of the WA.
gunbud (34066) 2007-02-06 20:21
Such a beautiful pond so different from the one you photographed in England but just as alluering. The sky reflects gracefully its strange patterns in the clear blue pond all framed with the lush green grass.
jdwyer264 (1082) 2007-02-15 19:17
Great shot, I love the softness of the colours and the warmth these colours project. Lovely shot, with an excellent reflection to add to the expressive sky. See what you think of my reflection shots.

This is one the more beautiful photo that I saw. Parabéns!
Witka49 (213) 2007-06-03 11:38
Congratulations - this capture is stunning. Especially impresive is the contrast of textures (the sky and its reflection in the water) which creates two, different characters of the place.
lucinka (9976) 2007-06-03 14:50
Hello Robert, just noticed your great portfolio. This photo particularly stands out for it wonderful colors and amazing scene. Those clouds really make this shot very dynamic. Great work. Lucie

aymeric_baque (145) 2008-09-20 4:13
Great picture with excellent sharpness and soft colours (it was probably end of the afternoon).
I like the wide angle lens use : it opens the space with deep perspective and magnify the clouds shapes.

Une composition vraiment réussie.

Your photo is sublime, but it lacks a little sharpness. It's a shame because the place is nice.
