My last free study of the year. This image granted me the podium of the FSM, so I'm quite happy I have shot this one. This was the only chance to shoot a landscape during December. I was coming back home and in the mountains there was snow on the ground, so I thought of this place. The light was quite good even if from this perspective snow is not visible.

This is a small but gorgeus lake I had visited once during a video working session. When I arrived I've seen the wonderful reflection and stopped there to take some pics.

After the shooting I started homeward but an incredible fog fell and I get lost. The lake is a huge plateau (in the past - 300 years ago was the third biggest lake in Italy). I spent an hour to understand where I was. But, anyways, I get the right image :)

Thank you all for your kind comments :)

Lovely scene, and nice photographed. It looks like there was an HDR conversion that created some oddities in the sky.
