Autumn at Speedwell Lake

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Autumn at Speedwell Lake
Autumn at Speedwell Lake
Speedwell Lake is in Northwest NJ. This autumn is particularly spectacular, probably due to a wet summer and wind free fall. This image was cropped slightly to eliminate a fisherman who could have been identified. The colors are real, no adjustments have been made.

    Awesome colors and great composition, Deborah. Is that the ruins of an old mill? I will have to get up that way sometime soon (I used to live in the Paterson area).

Your last three shots and this one would make a stunning collection as a panel, Deborah! They are all worthy of being used as calendar material! Just a fabulous display of colors and reflections, and this one has the added feature of the waterfall and structure!!
Aloha,
Stan

hello Debby
I just saw your image and it is very impressive, I was hoping to get some great autumn colours last year but our autumn was kind of 'poopie' so I didnt have too much luck.
a lovely image .. great work
