It’s a real challenge to find Mother Nature in her ideal state. And even if the conditions are perfect, you can’t expect it to last for long. However, photographer Joe Clarke got lucky at Lago di Carezza in the Dolomites:
Clarke took the image with his Canon 5D Mark III camera and his lens at 100mm f/4.5
“I arrived before sunrise and noticed how perfectly still the water was, hoping it would stay still when the sun hit the peaks behind it. Luckily it did for just a few minutes before the winds picked up and ruined the reflection.”
It’s difficult to distinguish whether the image is of the peak or its reflection if the bottom part of the image is cropped out. It must have been a near perfect, mirror-like experience for the photographer.
