Boat reflection

Reflection, like I mentioned yesterday, is one of my favorite things to work with. In Scandinavia we had lots of opportunities for that, with all the water. Here is one I am proud of.

The little boat in the middle of water, alone, nobody's on (?)and it's difficult to determine where's the limit for sky and water. They almost have the same colour...

This takes me back a bit. I lived in Norway in 1964-68 and almost everyone had a boat like this that they kept on a fjord somewhere. There was a jetty at Sandvika on the Oslofjord where we tied ours up, along with several others. They were called "snekkas" or something that sounded like this - I never saw it written.

This is a superb shot of a tranquil place. I can almost feel the slight rise and fall and hear the slap of the ripples on the wooden hull.

Chantal, this is a fabulous shot. The reflection is perfect and the colours are amazing. I like the dreamy feel of the hills in the background too smile

maybe just a little bit more PP
All your shots have a beautiful quality but to me this one is very special. I love the old wood on the boat and the serenity of the picture.
What a gorgeous boat! I really like the somewhat rippled reflection.

I like it, but If I were you I would have composed it landscape (rather than portrait) and kept the boat on one side of the frame (maybe left) and included more of the lake horizon line. The lake line and the hills in the distance are begging to be revealed and included. You would have had a very peaceful image with the boat on one side braking the pattern and or the emptyness. Good job though.
Great reflection on the water.
So nice ! I love boat and I love reflections ! :Thums up Chantal smile
