[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If I step back and stand up from where I was taking my previous macro shots, this is what I would see.

The body of water is Lake Lahit, a relatively small lake compared to other lakes. It is located on top of the mountains and is one of the lakes in the small town of Lake Sebu.

From where I was I had a commanding view of this lake, the bigger Lake Sebu on my left, and the Allah Valley on my back. It was beautiful, but this was the best that I can come up with. :( I shall return to that place someday with, hopefully, a lot more time on my hands. :)

Thanks for viewing! :D

Lovely lighting on the trees and lake and an interesting sky with all the different textures in the clouds. Nice composition of what looks like a great place to visit and spend some time.


wow nice and its like picture printed in plastic with illumination from the back!

Beautiful! Your photography has come a long way and the sharpness, light, and exquisite post processing in this shot is proof of that. Exceptional work my friend.

Hello Pierre,
This is a beautiful image, showing a smaller lake in the lake Sebu area...
The rich vivid colours are most attractive, and combined with great details making up this attractive composition!
Great brightness and a very pleasant sky to top it all...

Hi Pierre,
A spectacular landscape scene. Very crisp with awesome natural looking-colors and gorgeous sky and clouds. Am so pleased to see this - it reminds me of my visit to Lake Sebu. Greetings. Danilo

Hello Pierre
A pretty landscape, within a great atmosphere. It emphasizes much that cloud game, within blue the intense one, since they match with mountains.
Great colorful and excellent angle of shot. Congratulations
