Lo splendido lago Palù (anticamente chiamato semplicemente ‘l làach o lèèch, oggi làach o lèèch di palö, m. 1921), è incorniciato da una pineta fiabesca. Ecco come viene presentato nella Guida alla Valtellina: “Il lago non ha emissari apparenti e nessun ruscello si versa in esso: le sue acque sono tiepide tanto che vi si possono prendere i bagni… Né i pesci mancano, anzi v’abbondano le trote vi si trovò pur anco una grossa anguilla che ora si conserva nel Museo dell’Università pavese”.
Beautiful Lake Palu, is framed by a pine forest fairy. Here's how it is presented in the Guide to the Valtellina: "The lake has no apparent emissaries and no stream is poured into it: the water is warm so that you can take baths ... Neither the lack of fish, the trout will indeed a lot but yet we found a large eel that is conserved in the Museum of the University of Pavia. "

It is a photo with an interesting light spot, In the whole photo is a dark mysterious atmosphere, and this eyecatching bright spot, well seen

You have caught an amazing mood in this scene, dear Silvio!

Great sharpness and well clarity with nice management of light and contrasts.
The colors are natural and the mirror-reflections are beautifully caught in here.
Great job!

Ciao Silvio

Marvellous symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the lake with superb sharpness & good framing and composition. Nice repetition of the triangular shaped pine trees. Excellent shadow detail and well managed back lighting. Tfs!

Hi Silvio,
Beautiful levels of available lighting in this splendid landscape shot. Superb light on the trees rendering all lovely tones of green and the marvelous reflection in the mirror-like water. The BG is fantastic and creating that magic touch of depth!
Very neat work.

Bom dia Silvio
Very well composed... the curve is very attractive as the reflection and the atmosphere given some mistery and enchantement.
Good sharpness and colors...It must be very beautiful.
Um abraço

Ciao Silvio!
Magnifici riflessi in questo lago dall'aspetto misterioso. Questa foto sarebbe una perfetta locandina per un film intitolato "Delitti al lago".
Ottima la composizione, con le linee delle varie zone (lago, prato, pineta, montagna)che creano un bel movimento.
Il mezzo controluce e i colori cupi creano una grande atmosfera.
Bravo: complimenti.
ciao! Vanda

Hello Silvio, you have extremes of light to contend with here,but it makes a beautiful picture.
The lake is mysterious with the dark reflections of the trees.We get a glimpse of the landscape in the bg putting the whole picture into context.
A lovely composition.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Good night Silvio,

Chills fantastic color, contrast and harmony of beautiful reflections.
A mysterious atmosphere that only nature is beautifully the scene.
Compliments for this.
My best Regards
Have a nice evening.


Excellent light management to deal with these extremes. The reflection is lovely as is the sunlight on the left hand shore. Nice job

One has to like the lighting in this scene , a good mix of shadows/shade and light at different levels illuminates this pastoral scene of what appears to be a wild and remote area from civilization , i have that impression looking at your photo , anyway take care my friend and have a great weekend,

Altra vista del lago .
Penso che sia più "inquadrata " e fotograficamente più ricca di particolari e livelli .
