Frenald Pond

I stopped to photograph maple flowers growing on tree short enough to reach, but who could resist this clean sheet of reflective water. I would normally never but the horizon across the middle of the shot, but it works here somehow, with the bit of framing provided by the branch at the top and the strong reflections. Or so I think. I got down low to the water with the flip out LCD for the shot.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/800th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom. Added Clarity and a bit of Vibrance. Blackpoint to the right. Sharpen Landscape preset.

From Around Home 2010.

    Lovely photo. Funnily enough, the same sort of symmetry inspired me today!

    Hi Steve… you really work hard to please us. I, for one, appreciate the great pics that I see. This pics reminds me of the ‘Lake of Woods’, northern Minnesota and Canada, where I went fishing a few times with my father when I was in high school. Thanks again!! Jim
