On our second day in Maine, my daughter convinced us to do a bike ride around some ponds and Eagle Lake. It turned into a 10 mile expedition and after not being on a bike for the past 25 yrs, my backside was not pleased. Anyway, it was a beautiful day and I had a small Micro-Four-thirds camera system with me (even a travel tripod). My rather frequent pleading to stop so that I could make a few images became old for wife and daughter, so I made mental notes for the later that day.

The image below was made at Eagle Lake with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L lens at f22. This is late afternoon light falling on the mountain and the trees on the right. The foreground reflects the light from the sky and had interesting texture and color from the grasses growing within the shallow water. I composed to maximize the geometry of the scene and to create a balanced image.
