Taken on a fine spring day, Spelga Dam, a reservoir in the Mourne Mountains, shows off its' true beauty. I didn't mind not having a few fluffy clouds for the perfect shot as the simplicity and clutter free nature of it really appealed to me.
Thanks for looking,

Superbes couleurs et belle composition. J'aime la progression des trois points vers le milieu du lac

Without the clouds this shot is an abstract composition, and that improves its value.
Beautiful colors and great sharpness, the elements in the water make the depth and the same blue in water and sky give a reflection idea!
Very well done Sean, I don't mind the cloudless sky!

Simply beautiful, Sean
Whyever would you have needed fluffy clouds? The horizontal gentle ripples and the shallow height of the hills help to give the feeling of peace. The rougher water allows the reflection of the hills to appear as islands, a wonderful scene to capture.
