After a side trip to Magdeburg for this week’s photo challenge, let’s head back to Japan and continue our tour to the five lakes in Shiretoko Peninsula. This time we are at Lake 4.
The area of Lake 4 is about 2.1 hectare which is about 2.5 times of the area of Lake 5. However if you look at this picture, you may think it’s smaller. The reason is that Lake 4 has a long rectangular shape and the walking trail only touches on the short side of it. Adding to the fact that there are loads of trees along the side, it’s virtually impossible to take a panoramic picture of it.
This picture is indeed quite boring. To make it more interesting, I turned the nearer trees and shore to black and white and enhanced the colour of the lake and the far end. Frankly I am not very skilful to do such kind of selective colourisation so the effect can still be better. Nevertheless I hope such manipulation can give you a better appreciation of the beauty of the lake.
