[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lexi a 13-year-old Labador Retriver is seen swimming across this pond that will be used to make snow during the up coming ski season.
We are welcome at the small ski area because Buddy my border collie mix keeps these ponds geese and beaver free in the spring.

Beautiful image with fabulous set of tones and colours...love the effect of the polorizer. The horizon is tilted tho...and the exposure a bit under, but it still remain a nice image.

It is a colourful image with so much to see in it.
It is well composed, with very good lighting and colours. The photo does look tilted to the right though.
The reflections and clouds are very Eye-catching
Well done

Another very beautiful place. I love how the sunlight is bringing out the wonderful colors of the leaves! Also the tall grass in the fg seem to add depth. TFS

Hello Tom,
A beautiful image with wonderful tones and colours.
The lighting is superb.
Very well composed.
Good effect with the polarizer
I'm wondering why the pond needs to be free of geese in the spring?
TFS, Joni

Stunning!! I'm SO impressed with this shot Tom! I love that combination of Oranges, pinks, blues, etc. I just love the effects a wide angle has, really nice lines leading left to right! Excellent work!

Hi Tom...great shot..unusual tones and colors..very effective.


Helo Tom
Veeeeery beautiful autumn picture with lot of fresh air in October evening
PS All best to you and your family

Hello Tom,

A fabulous shot showing remarkable clarity.
I like how the sky and the reflection of the sky are just separated by that amazing combination of autumn colours, the middle section of which, seems to be under the spotlight!
I love how the photograph is edged with natural borders.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Tom, a lovely composition.I really like the reflection of the sky in the fg.
The sun has highlighted the autumn colours of the trees, they are so beautiful.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Tom,
Beautiful and unusual scene, the light is very special and I like a lot the contrast between the warm tones of the trees and the low-lighted sky with its clouds reflected in the lake.
TFS and a nice WE,

Beautiful landscape. Excellent light and wonderful reflections. Foreground bushes creating a 3D effect.

Hi Tom,

HI Tom
Labradors are like ducks to water and I see you keep him fit and happy. The Fall colours are aflame in this shot and I love the reflection and texture of the water.
Nice shot

Hello, Tom,
Beautiful picture, amazing colours and light!
Best regards,

Hi Tom
Wow! What a splendid photo, what an artistic composition! The point of view makes the pond look like a cove due to a strategic crop or framing. The vegetal elements add a nice perspective to the scenery and all those colors in the trees in the background make a marvelous source of light. in the scenery. The reflection of the sky is beautiful. The car to the left is a bit disturbing though.
Nicely done
