Gold Lake Christmas Card by greglief Gold Lake Christmas Card by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! Also, I invite you to download this image to use as desktop wallpaper. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it.

This is somewhat old (five years ago this month), but I think it works well for the holiday season. This is from a snowshoeing trip at Gold Lake, located near the Willamette Pass in central Oregon. I could not feel my fingers when I took the shot, and my tripod kept sliding around on the frozen snow, so my expectations were nil. When I returned home and looked at my shots, I was very surprised to discover that this one was actually worth keeping!

(The sections of the lake where the reflections were obscured were covered with ice.)

NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.

(Nikon D70, Nikon 12-24 lens, circular polarizer, f/22, 1/3 second, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)

Looks wonderful, the reflection seems so perfect even in the areas where the ice obscures it. :)
