A thousand thanks to EVERYONE for stopping by for a moment by the shores of this beautiful lake. It was truly amazing.
In answer to some of your questions... yes, I took this photo.
Yes it is a real place.
It was created from a few different exposures (to capture both the bright lights and details in the sky), then blended in Photoshop. I sharpened and carefully used contrast to clarify the details, but otherwise didn't alter the color from the RAW image.
It is in the state of Utah, in the U.S.
I'm glad you're enjoying it! It is truly one of natures wonders.
Ahhhhh +Mike Shaw
... thank you, mi amigo. You ARE one of three such luminaries, you know. giggle!
And I'm delighted you like this one. ;-D
That's a HUGE compliment +Christian Jog
, thank you! I think Utah Lake is quite extraordinary. I think sometimes overexposure (pardon the pun) makes us imagine
a place is less special than it is. Then the trick is to alter our own perception of it. I had never seen this lake before - so I had the benefit of both ignorance and fresh eyes! ;-))+AADHITHYA AADHITHYA
