This is Lake Aursunden, which I have shown in a couple of images earlier…

When we arrived at our destination in Sweden, behind the mountains in the horizon, the rain was pouring down… No big surprise from what we can see in the image!

Some facts: Lake Aursunden is located in the municipality of Røros at an altitude of 690 m, is around 20 km long and covers an area of 46 km2. The lake is populated by a variety of freshwater fish, dominated by trout, grayling and Arctic char.

And since the image was taken from a moving car you will find a tad of motion blur in the field of wild flowers by the lakeside…

Really beautiful! All of the colors are great as is the sharpness. Excellent depth. A very pretty place!!! TFS and have a happy day!

Beautiful and dramatic nature scene--the silver lake with those small islands, the distant mountains, the storm sky, cloudy and lighted in the same time. Very picturesque and, as I can see, not very populated...

TFS and have a nice WE !

Hi Pablo...this is a pretty shot..nicely composed as usual...


Hi Pablo,

After enjoying your countryside and the wide open space I have been reading your note - taken from a moving car did not hurt this picture in any way, or maybe it is my poor eyesight - it's just fine and one's attention is immediately drawn into the picture to check out the bad weather approaching ^-^.

Kind regards.

Hi Pablo,
It's great to have time to hang on TL again, mostly if I can enjoy such genious photographs as this one. Again one of Your wonderful landscapes (which You're a master of), which is having its own atmosphere, and with a brilliant white balance contrast between warm (fg) and cool (bg) colors. Fabolous capture of a fabolous place. I never thought it was shot from a moving car - I know my glasses aren't strong enough :) - I didn't realize any blur at all. No more words needed: although all Your photos have very high quality, You're even able to improve. This is simply a fantastic masterpiece. And I'm very happy I'm the person who gives the 200th points to it.
Respectful regards from Your Hungarian friend, László

One lake critique deserves an other lake critique. I would not have noticed the tad of blurr had you not mentioned it - the little islands and the BG are rock solid. Colors well captured my friend.


My friend Pablo -
This photograph is fantastic!
Love the view and you composition is excellent.
Good work.

Hi Pablo!
Wonderful composition!
I love this much your work.
Excellent prospect and guidelines.
Color and brightness fabulous.
Beautiful picture!
Authentic "postal card"!


Hallo Pablo,
sehr schöne Landschaft. Was mir an deinen Fotos besonders gut gefällt, ist die Schärfe und Klarheit der Details. Dazu hast du noch den richtigen "POV". Tolle Arbeit mein Freund.


Hi Pablo,

The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes toward the mountains in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The cloudy sky is filtering the light which brings out the colors and giving them a good contrast. Have a nice day.


Hi friend,
I return :) .......
wonderful shot great colour of sky, and composition!
Great place!
