Time for reflection

Time for reflection

This was always a favorite shot of mine from a mountaineering trip to the Chamonix Valley a few years ago. Two climbing companions and I we were in a rush to start a route called the Traverse of the Aiguilles Crochues having got L'Index chairlift up from the valley.
On the way to the start of the climbing we came across this beautiful lake which had a stunning view back to the Mont Blanc Massif. Despite the rush, I made my companions wait for me to run down to the lake to get the composition I wanted and hence named this "Time for Reflection."
Single exposure taken with a circular polarising filter to fine-tune the amount of reflection and slow down the movement on the lake.
I've reprocessed from the RAW file to take advantage of the best current processing and decided on a slightly wider crop too.
