This was shot on a small lake in Benzie County, Michigan called Ransom Lake, which is part of a natural conservation area. It was just at dawn when I made this capture. I like the triangle shapes created by the elements in this composition which create leading lines to the central focus of the image. It was a dead still day with a soft mist just hanging on the lake in the distance.
