Nature's first green is gold 2006-05-2430 Comments
Not necessarily a jaw-dropper, but rather a photo that gives us a warm feeling in the stomach area, when we look at it. This is one of about three smaller lakes we regularly come across on our mountain bike tours.
The title is the first line from the poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost, because you always want moments like this to stay although you clearly know everything is subject to change and that this is also the reason why we enjoy the moment in the first place.
looks like there's a pot of gold there in the lake :) let's go tell the leprechauns hehe ;) Minna @ 2006-May-24 17:55
Wonderful. Very peaceful! A feel-good-photo! Peter @ 2006-May-24 18:27
So simple and all the more effective for that plus the right choice in going mono. Captures the quietness of the moment very well, I???d say. AG @ 2006-May-24 18:54
Ganz schwieriges Licht und eine Gradwanderung zwischen Scherenschnitt und Detail. Die Atmosphaere stimmt :) ....aber ich würde trotzdem gerne wissen was dort rechts hinten ist....:D Jens @ 2006-May-24 19:14
I'm realyy loving these copper-lijke tones that you guys are coming up with. Nice one! Heath @ 2006-May-25 11:35

I used this allusion on my own site a few days back. Well done. Matt @ 2006-May-25 16:26
Wow! I got that same warm feeling in my stomach! Great image! micki @ 2006-May-25 17:24
whew, you know, in my opinion, I would crop out the sky and make an image of the mysterious lake reflection, perhaps it would be yet another trite reflection shot, but I think it's worth some look. I like this one more than the current one. Phu @ 2006-May-25 18:46
Not jawdropping but oh so beautiful.
I'm fond of reflections and the reflections in the water are great. Erik @ 2006-May-27 09:31
