Description

Black and white. A view of a lake nestled among wooded mountains; our viewpoint is from a landing that is slightly above the shoreline. Mountains stretch across the middle of the picture, reflecting off of the lake’s mirrored surface on the picture’s right; trees crowd the lakeshore on its left side. In the foreground, to the right, stands a dead tree.
