Wolfgangsee is one of the most beautiful lakes we have here in Austria, isn't it?

@Roman: No! :)
I think the entire country it's equally beautiful, hard to decide which spot it's more beautiful than other...
Wonderful composition! I love the stones and the reflection in the water.

This all starts with a great foreground to lead us in over water displaying amazing clarity - did you use a polarising filter? Then we move to the back to find subtle layers and quite beautiful structure on the clouds. An exceptional picture Maria.

@Curly: Thank you!
No, I didn't use a polarizer, cause this is a hand held and I needed all the speed that I can get without increasing ISO, nor sacrificing the aperture, but I'm not bothered by the glare and extreme light areas
Wonderful light with amazing atmosphere, fine composed!

A wonderful image of this beautiful spot in the Salzkammergut!
We swam in Lake Wolfgang (Wolfgangsee) while spending a month in nearby Bad Ischl, to cool off during some very hot days. It was hard then, to imagine this area in the midst of winter.

Hi Maria - This is, pictorially, such a completely balanced image...everything has its place and everything is in its place...like an expertly directed stage play. One might think that the beautiful sun is the lead character but I think that, even if that were the case, the stones at the foreground of this image, in the water, the stones get the award for best supporting character....The sunlight reflected not once, not twice, but multiple times on the water is bouncing like a stone across the flat smooth lake. The light from the sun coming around the edge of where the land meets the water is magnificent. The sunburst is strong without overpowering the rest of the frame. The clouds above and the green reflected water on the left both provide opposite contrasts for the eye to travel to and enjoy. The angle that you have taken helps to achieve that wonderful depth along with our good friend Mr F16. And those stones...I love those stones . The clarity of this entire image is matched in the water here at the shoreline. And I truly applaud your "non-use" of the polarizer....they save our lives but you have the expertise and knowledge to know when you even need to dispense with that...Bravo, Maria!...I truly love this Image!!

Ah, this is a tender and delicious shot, Maria. I love the way you have caught the clarity of the water...
love being able to look down beneath the water into the depths. Wonderful.
