I was planning to start a small series on autumn colours today… But then, I just arrived back home from my Sunday photohunt and decided I’d rather share something fresh today!

This lake is located around 30-40 km from Trondheim, and you can find quite a few weekend houses and cabins along the shores.

Today the weather was quite pleasant, a few clouds but no wind at all so the reflective qualities of the lake was at its best!

A beautiful scene, with a nice color accent from the boat, Pablo. The outboard motor and its reflection add interest, too. Nice light, too. Compositionally I might have liked to see a little more of the shore (via a slightly lower POV, perhaps) but that's very picky, it's great! Regards, Ken.

Beautiful composition. I love how the saturated red pops out against the less saturated blues. Very peaceful.

Perfect reflection! I like the way the water acts like a mirror to the mountains and sky, making it look like they are floating in air. The red boat is a great accent because the colour contrasts so well with the blue/green of the scene. Well done!

The reflection of the boat in water is very pretty.
The colors are very pretty and the sky is very beautiful.
Very nice composition.

Hej , Pablo .
It's so beautiful !
The surface looks like silver or solid glass , and there is a dramatic ( mostly due to the orange boat ), magic and peaceful atmosphere
because one can hardly tell where the surface really is .
My sincere compliments !

Hello Pablo,

A very beautiful composition!I like the contrast between the orange boat and the blue of the lake and sky,the reflexions are stunning!Very good colors and framing.Peaceful atmosphere.

All my congratulations.

Yes, a perfect mirror, Pablo, and what a bright colour spot amid the blues and greens! I did a small WS to make a different version of this picture, hope you don't mind.

it indeed looks like a windless day, not a single ripple visible on the water surface. nice color captured here. the small boat on the background really well placed and thus gives us the depth of this composition.

The best think of the shot is the orange boat and its reflection.

this boat like a sprite which burns bright this photo.
thx for share

Hi Pablo,
Such a pretty and serene capture, the color of the boat stands out in the composition. REgards,

Wow this is a nice one. Good composed, lovely that one red boat making a big contrast with the rest of the scene. Well done. Good saturation, nice reflections of the sky in the still water. I like also the lonelyness, and absence of human, only the boat..tells a bit of human influences here. And a little house in the far far distance. It's okay you've captured some foreground in the front of the boat.
Good details and superb sharpness.
Bravo, thanks for sharing.

Hello Pablo.
I'm at a loss for words at how crisp this photo is. The pastel colors are brilliant. Placement of the boat and balance of the reflections are spot on. Great sky, great midground, great foreground...great photo.

Hi Pablo,
I also would like to take autumn shots, but it comes late this year. We had +23 on Saturday!
Perfect reflections. Lights and shadows alternate beautifully on the trees.

thanks, ciao

Hi Pablo,

A good POV of the boat, the forest, the mountains, the sky and of their reflection in the water which is an asset to the photo. It is sharp and clear. It has a very good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hello Pablo,
A nice quiet and relaxing composition with a good red touch by the boat.

Hi Pablo,
Wonderful peaceful composition.
Great pov, colors, light, reflection effects and sharpness.
I like much the small red boat alone on this lake and the blue/grey cloudy sky.

Hi Pablo!
This is an unforgettable late summer photo. Firs of all, RGB is always a winner combination, as you use to say. Second, diagonal clouds, third, a V-like mountain and lake with the boat situated according to the 1/3 rule! A texbook example of a composition! Just to mention the sharpness and the true colours in addition!

Oh! Very nice image Pablo! The reflections and the boat are very attractive! I prefer if the boat is farther from the shore and the shore is excluded, but that's just me, and there's nothing you can do about it. Overall, a poster-like shot. rgds.

Great image, Pablo. I'm a sucker for reflections and this red boat is a beauty for that. My personal taste would be for a tighter crop, like the WS panorama.

Hello Pablo;oh very good shot MASTER!!Perfect frame and color...

Olá Pablo, spectacular shot, with very impressive and atractive reflections on the still water surface. The red boat is very well placed and with the right proportion on the image, making an interesting contrast, with the beautiful landscape. The image is clean and with wonderful colors. A perfect capture!

Hi Pablo,

this is in my opinion a perfect photo, the lake so still, the colours so well balanced, the boat a perfect detail to contrast with...excellent! And, by the way, this looks like a wonderful place!

Take care, Ivana

Very nice pic !
The exposure is perfect, and the boat provides a nice contrast.
Good job.

That's great! The reflections on the still water are awesome: it really looks like a mirror. The red boat is a fantastic plus. Wonderful enviroment.
One of my favourites.

Hi Pablo
I thing this photo without the canoe would not have been the same. It enhance the quietness of the lake.

Professional composition + the luck of a soft lighting = artful tableau.

I just discovered your gallery: and sincerly a great BRAVO !!!

This shot is (like most of the others) superb.
A very nice reflection.



Hi Pablo. Indeed the reflective qualities are right up there with the best. I love the curves of the boat and the bright colour also contrasts well with the rest of the scene. Thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Paul.

Beautiful symmetrical image Pablo. If you took away the shoreline and turned the image upside down I doubt we would notice as the reflections are so clear and sharp. The vivid red of the boat provides wonderful impact. Very good work.

The name mirror lake aptly belongs to to this place. The red boat and its reflection is the scene stealer on this nicely done composition. Very well done!

Thank you for your comment on my photo on, "Lassen Volcanic Park". I appreciate it.


Hi Pablo,
Yes, the title already says it, it is a mirror lake. What beautiful reflections in the water, as much of mountains and cloudy sky as the boat located so well in the frame.
The illumination is perfect, the excellent colors, and the image has a great quality.
I like the space that you have left to the sky in the picture, it gives to much importance and great resistance him with the rest of the photo.
Great shot!

Hi Pablo,
Well placed red boat interferes into this perfect harmony made by the sky and water. Few shadows on the forest give very interesting effect and provide deeper perspective.

An excellent shot, my friend!
The landscape is so beautiful and peaceful!
Just perfect.

Wow, the reflections in this are so sharp, Pablo. The water must have been very still. The red boat provides a vivid contrast to the rest of the image. Cheers . . . David

Dear Pablo
This is a wow of a reflection shot...the calm waters did help in this perfect compo..so well balanced. You've followed the 1/3 rule & the colours especially of the boat really stand out. A quality post from you (nothing new about that)

Hello Pablo!

Beautiful crisp picture! Lovely scenery. And an amazing almost painted like sky. Great POV to the mountains:) The boat gives that final punch to it!


This is such a clear, lovely photo, Pablo! Well placed boat, and super sharpness and composition.

Pablo, I think the other hundred-odd TE members have said it all twice over, but I couldn't resist, even though I'm a bit late to get on the wagon. I can hardly believe you can just go out on a 'Sunday photo hunt' and find this kind of scene not far from home! Amazing. The title says it all. The key is the beautiful positioning of the boat in the frame and the naturalistic colours. Of course the sense of depth created by the shorelines converging in the distance doesn't hurt either. A wonderful view of a truly lovely scene.

Hello Pablo of the North Country.
I appreciate this lakescape with the boat positionned on a strong point of the foreground.
I feel relax when I see this picture.
Well done.

Hi Pablo!
Excellent! Perfect composition, colors and light. Beautiful place. Brawo!
best regards

What a lovely place!!
I like the way you show us different greens in the hills, clouds shadows over the hills, and reflection into the water. Of course, a red boat is perfect to describe space dimensions and to creat a nice focal point


Hello Pablo.
Excellent photo with perfect reflection in the water. The water's view is absolutely uncommon.
I like the delicate colours of this picture. And the red boat which is the photo's main accent. Well composed too.

Well done...

A feast for the eyes.

Tout a été écrit sur cette magnifique photo, ces couleurs sa composition, moi elle me touche parce que j'y retrouve la très belle lumière que nous avons vus et les superbes paysages que nous avons traversés lors de notre voyage en Norvège l'été dernier. Cela reste un excellent souvenir!

Wow what a peaceful composition you have here. Everything is perfect the puffy clouds reflecting in the still lake surrounded by lush green hills. I'm so relaxed I think I will have to take a nap.

Ah yes Pablo,
this would go well with some fresh lake pike and a bottle of Akavit? Eh!

Mind you in Nova Scotia I prefer Newf Screech* on the Beach! So long, ;j.

PS Very nice shot... but that is redundant!

Hi Pablo,
This is an excellent shot; the water looks as if the boat is put on the glass. The background looks great. But I have to say that you did magic with your camera. TFS.


Hallo Pablo,
ein wunderschönes Landschafts mit seinen Strahlen Farben alles zeigt. Gefällt mir sehr.Wunderschöne Komposition mit guter Schärfe gratuliere.
Schöne Grüsse

Hi Pablo,
I don't think I can add anything more to what already has been said, just amazing work!

Hi Pablo
This is amazing , what a smoot lake and what a nice colors ,
great reflect and perfect colors
Very well done

Hi Pablo,
What a fantastic shot! This scene is so similar to NZ. The placement of the boat and reflections makes this composition A+++. Well done.

Pablo bonsoir.
J'étais passé à côté de cette merveilleuse photo. Elle a tout pour plaire jusqu'au rouge de la barque. J'aime cette eau calme qui reflète comme un miroir le ciel et les montagnes.

Hello Pablo,
I can only join the chorus of admirers of this remarkable photo -- simple, but beautifully composed, magnificently exposed. As a scientist/artist, trained in mathematics, I am especially happy to arrive when the photo has garnered 314 points (or 100 pi). The colors are vivid and photo (perhaps I should say, "A pair of photos in one") are complemented by an understated frame. Best wishes from Virginia,

Hi Pablo,
Very nice picture. The reflection est perfect!
I like the workshop that someone has done. Removing a part of the sky gives even more strength to that quite place!

Next time Alaska and Canada bye and have a nice weekend Shimon

Hi Pablo,

it's a wonderful composition with perfect conditions for this type of shot, lovely blue sky dotted with fluffy clouds, no wind, perfect light....wait!.....if the conditions are so perfect why can't we all do it? Seriously though, it is a superb capture, I like Alexander's WS and I like it as it is, it's just superb, well done.



The reflection of the boat in the water is mirror sharp. Good composition and good strong cololours. Nice work.

Hi Pablo, Looking back into your site I come upon this photo, I really was taken by the peace & tranquility of it, the water is wonderfully calm (almost asleep) & this is helping to craft that superbly formed reflection of the boat, the vivid orange adds some excellent colour, the overall composition is superb, TFS, kind regards Wilson.

Your decision in upload this one has a fantastic reaction of several Trekearths members... like me.

Hello Pablo!
I've been away from TE for a couple of days because I was visiting a place where it's impossible to use computers! Now I'm back trying to catch up on my comments on my TE friends's photos! I found this "old" of yours and I really like it! Sharpness, exposure and natural colors are wonderful! The pov was very well chosen and, man, the composition here is the true highlight with an attrative reflection as well!
TFS - congratulations!
Best regards,

Hi there :)
Another great picture,everything in it is perfect,and in my opinion it is impossible to find a better boat then this red one.



Hi, Pablo,

With this big smiley, will you be pushed out of the 300-400 club? Almost.

I love reflections.

This is a really great exhibition reflections.

Low sun angle, not a breath of wind, an almost perfectly ripple free glass surface of the lake. (But I do note a few very minor ripples in the image of the ridge line on the right.)

The bright orange-red boat contrasts wonderfully with the dark green hillsides and the pale blue sky.

I understand well the choice to put the boat on the left, pointing into the frame to guide the viewer's eye in. I also understand the choice to have reflection of the sky behind the boat before the reflection of the vegetated hillside, which helps make the boat stand out.

The part I don't understand so well, though, is the choice to devote 2/3 of the frame to the sky, when the clear star of the show is the lake. Interesting. I'll keep pondering.

- William

dear Pablo,
this red boat looks floating in the air,
actual sky and mirrored sky are making quite one sky,
and also both mountains are making strange patterns like Rorschach inkblot test...
anyway, the clear light and air are so fine to show me splendid autumn view,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hi Pablo,
Daylight prevailed so you managed a wonderful mirror effect on boat and trees.
Sharp and contrasted well.

Hola Pablo,
bella composizione arricchita dalla barca in FG e dal suo riflesso sull'acqua del lago, dando anche un tocco di contrasto cromatico con l'azzurro di prevalenza.
Ottima nitidezza e profondità.
