Typically speaking, photographers avoid shooting during the middle of the day. Mid day lighting is often too harsh when the sun is high in the sky, which can cause even the most stunning composition to lose its impact.
However, there are always expectations to the rule and sometimes a photo just works so well that even unappealing lighting can’t stop it from being memorable. Such is the case with this photo; I just love the composition and the beauty of the crystal clear reflections in the water. It’s just so simple that no post-processing went into it at all.
Here is the funny thing: this photo was captured outside of a Norwegian gas station! As I was filling up my car with some of the worlds most expensive gas (at almost 10$ a gallon!) this mountain and and lake caught my eye. I decided to take a walk around the lake and this composition jumped out at me! A single shot was all I needed to capture the scene effectively.
To this day, it is still one of my favorite images and I found it totally by chance!
