Description

Photo captures multiple compositional layers and multiple elements of symmetry with two parallel sets of ripples in the water and with water reeds in the foreground, and a glass-like lake in the mid-ground that reflects a mirror image of the trees and meadow and mountains in the background. In addition, a V-shape triangle of reeds points to V-shape gap between the mountains and that gap's reflection in the water, and the rising sun casts a diagonal band of light across the mountain peaks.
