“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I liked the balance of this image and as I set it up. Essentially, I thought that the contrast in the shape of the foreground offsetting the similar, opposite shape, of the background provided a nice balance to the image. Add in the fact that there was some nice color in the trees in the foreground and the morning light was still soft and I’m really pleased with how the image turned out. This isn’t a broad landscape but rather as Rick Sammon would say I ‘filled the frame’ with the mountains and the foreground – I had other frames where the mountain was reflecting nicely in the water as well but I thought this was a strong composition since the mountain dominates the image way it did while I was standing there.
