Brou Lake morning - part 7

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 25 April 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Today's image closes my series on Brou Lake - I hope you enjoyed this walk with me!

Most of the shoreline of Brou Lake is now a National Park. It is a sanctuary for many species of bird life. A small basic camping ground is located close to where I have taken these shots. But otherwise, much of the lake and its surrounds is wild country.

However, the lake is small in size and as such remains a fragile place - to which future tourist development will probably edge closer.

In this series, I have sharpened each shot - but no other processing.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

The range of colour in the foreground is wonderful and a close crop of the bottom middle would make a lovely almost abstract picture in itself. A very nice series Stephen

That bank of clouds is just amazing! This has been such a wonderful series, Stephen! I "travelled" back to look at the images I have missed. I can see why you like this place...the feeling of serenity just pops through my screen and I agree with Curly, the colors are magnificent. Again I am really quite taken by the red soil in the water! Fantastic. Finally, thank you so very much for your kind and gracious comments on my blog while I was away..I really appreciate them. Looking forward to your next - tomorrow I start a short series on The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in California - images I have not shown before ..just three or four probably. All the best Stephen - stay well! Denny

Rick from Toronto, Canada

You finished off the delightful series with a great frame : that rich brown swath through the middle of the image is perfect and in harmony with the other eye-pleasing elements. I hope that development doesn't encroach upon and ultimately harm that lake.

25 Apr 2011 3:15pm

@Rick: Thanks, Rick! Always enjoy your comments and glad you could follow the series with me.

Shar from Pilot Butte near Regina, SK, Canada

Congratulations on a super series Stephen! This is a gorgeous spot where I would love to pitch a tent and watch the sun rise and set repeatedly! Bravo! ;-)

25 Apr 2011 5:53pm

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks, Eric. Visiting the lake, the smell of camp fires in the late afternoon added to the experience of the senses.
