This is the stream running into Spirit Lake. I was caught by the brilliant back lighted trees and their reflections in the water. A bird happened to be in the sky to help fill that blank sky. Click here for larger image.
A flooded valley is an impressive site!

If you had assembled this on canvas from a paintbox, you could not have arrived at a better composition. Even the bird has been trained up on the rule of thirds ! All is so at ease.
A splendid composition . Beautiful reflections .

Delightful color in the foreground/midground and good detail throughout. The soaring bird is perfectly placed to add interest and make up for the washed-out sky.

Floods can be no fun, but this photo is very nice. I love the quality of the tree reflections, that cloud shadow on the distant hill, and of course the bird who filled the gap. Nice !

Un lac qui porte bien son nom. Les reflets d'or des arbres sont superbes

Beautiful shot !

Unusual flooding is no longer unusual. It has become the norm with all the trees dead from pine beetle. They aren't sucking up all that water.
Very beautiful scenery with the smooth water and beautiful reflections ~ great photo!

Captivating...especially since I grew up camping each summer on the shores of Spirit Lake and knew the area well, before the Volcano. Wonderful to be reminded. Thank you !!

Oh, this is one of those shots where I love the feel of it...do you know what I mean. It is capturing a mood as much as an image. It is magic when it happens.

Wonderful use of backlight here Don! It has a glow of it's own! ;-)
