Calm before the storm - Roper Lake State Park

It was a very calm morning at the state park in Arizona with a wind forecast of up to 50mph gust in the afternoon.

Specific Feedback and Self-Critique

We go there often and the snow on the mountains added to the scene. This viewpoint of the lake is the better overall view.

Dean, this is very pleasant, peaceful and inviting. However, this weeks challenge is for, “a photo that is entirely a reflection”. While I’m willing to let something with a tiny amount of non-reflection in, the landscape in this one is a major part of the view. Should I move this to Landsape?

Sure Mark, I need to read the description more carefully


This is indeed a lovely image. I like to call these “reflectionscapes”. :slight_smile: You did well to minimize the bluebird sky and the ripples in the water make for a very nice reflection.

Processing looks good and natural. No nits or suggestions!

Dean, I like this scene. The reflections are very nice.
