The blue lake is difficult to photograph.
I think there are two main reasons for that Firstly it has been photographed so many times that approaching it with fresh eyes isn’t easy and secondly it is such a surreal place that viewing it from a “normal “ perspective is disappointing.
On previous occasions the better images I made were abstracts showing only small parts of the scene.
I tried that again but produced nothing new.
Then I had a play with my IR converted camera. The IR view produced a new “normal” and better reflects the special feel of the place.
