We stopped beside the lake mid-afternoon – not exactly the time of day that the “Landscape Photographers Guide” suggests.
The colour of the lake is what I always find magical so I just wandered along beside the rocks. When I saw the bits of tree I decided that I just had to go and get my camera.
Some ND to smooth things out and just wait for the top of the mountain to come out of the cloud. That didn’t exactly happen but I did have fun.
