Great composition John, I like how the trees frame the lake and the photographer being outside of it, capturing this scene

Excellent exposure and bags of interesting detail in foreground and at both sides (look at the excrescences on that tree!) The photo is enhanced by the huge expanse of water being broken up, presumably by the wake from a boat.

I always find it kind of amusing to see how "we photographers" lean forward or backward, to the side, on your stomache and so on to get the best shot. Grin lol
