BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Portage
Portage
submitted 9/29/09, landscape. This is a stream typical of those that join lakes in Quetico and Boundary Waters. The portage trails follow either these streams or the lowest point between lakes. (I don't think I would take a canoe down this!) Tripod, f16, 3.2 sec, ISO400.

Really beautiful. Excellent composition and I love the lighting. That water is also very appealing and interesting. Excellent work as always.

Awesome lighting, Carol. Excellent shadow play and beautiful movement in the water. Is this morning light?

It does look a bit hazardous for a canoe, but it sure is gorgeous, Carol!

Beautiful! Inviting! Makes me wish I was there to see this! I love what everyone else mentioned - the water veiling, the lighting, shadows, pov, etc. etc. - all excellent - but what really "floats my boat" is the awesome green of the moss you captured; how the sun reflects off it...it just looks so lush..OK, OK, I admit it, I'm a moss lover! I love your "stuff", Carol!! Great eye (to catch that moss, just so, in this perfect capture!) :)

Looks like a magical place, Carol. Your long exposure masterfully overcame the limited light, bringing out the detail and feel of its abundant beauty.

WOW the light here is simply exquisite and like Valarie, I love the moss and that slight light on it. The veiling of the water, they dappled lighting and overall composition is terrific, Carol!! I am not one to make predictions, but I bet we will be seeing this again!!!
