This image has such a mystical, other worldly mood about it, Yves, it is so very beautiful! The tones and details of the water, trees and birds just jive so perfectly together. If I could choose a Photo of the Week this would be the one.

Thanks Heather. Your beautyful comment puts a nice emotion in my soul. One of those shot that make me believe that I have a little help from my friend. Of course the scene was already setup, but do you thing that the 1/2500 speed have produced that icy mood?

Clifford Dupuis

this is an amazing capture with a surreal mood. Very well done, with so many elements in the image

Thank you Jeff

Very cool and interesting shot Yves. Was it a foggy out or just a very fine mist coming down. The lake is so extremely calm almost as if it were the calm before the storm. Very serene landscape and nice that you have the duck and the bird of prey in the shot as well.

Thanks Debra. A big fog was raising, mostly concentrate over the lake itself (behind the trees). There where no fog on the foreground. It was a very special morning.

A winter view of the Magog lake covered with a mirror frozen water? With a paddeling duck and a bird of prey, it can't be. Once in a while the conditions of shooting produce a very surprising result. I can't explain the frozen look of the water, but I like it very much.
