High view down to the reservoir and the dancing trees.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Taken from high above Dovestones. The apparent blue sky is an optical illusion as I took this some hundreds of feet higher, looking down towards the sky blue reflections of the lake. (Hence the black floats.) Not quite as sharp as I would have liked, partially due to shaking hands after a tough climb and -2c snow conditions with no camera support.

Argenna, Tanja, Anne, Stathis and Miketa, nice to see you all here again enjoying my work. The late sun shining on this distant scene attracted my attention and I kept my fingers crossed for a result. Very happy you all like this.

Anne -true 'wildlife' photography employs skills I have yet to master! Thanks for your encouragement anyway.

Best wishes to you all, Herb

Very good capture, like.

Erik van den Ham on January 21, 2013

Maybe not as sharp as wished but this is definitely liked. The colored landscape, the blue of the water and the dancing trees as you call them make a perfect scene.

Kind regards, Erik

Dear Herb,

Is not so sharp your photo, that's right. However the lines, the colours and the frame is really good. LIKE it a lot.

Best regards, Alberto
