Lake 3 (3.2 hectares) is about 50% bigger than Lake 4. Moreover, unlike in Lake 4 where the walking trail only touches on a very short segment of the lake’s shore, it covers a much larger portion of the shore of Lake 3. As a result, it’s much easier to capture its beauty.
I actually have a couple of nice panoramic pictures of Lake 3 but as I said in the earlier posts, the lakes actually look similar (at least in pictures). In the last 2 posts I tried to play around with the colour and for this one, I tried with a portrait orientation, which is not normally used in capturing mountains and lakes.
I also like the stark contrast of the tree silhouette at the foreground and the rich green trees at the background. It was summer time and most of the trees are growing aggressively with dense green leaves. This one obviously was less healthy as you can see a couple of bare branches there. Therefore after taking some “standard” landscape pictures of the lake, I was attracted by this tree and took a couple of portrait of it.
