Award Winner : Merit Award

This sharply focused black and white landscape photograph, reminiscent of Ansel Adams’ work, attracts me with the promise that pristine, remote places of beauty, where intentional solitude is achievable, do exist. Just by looking at the work, the viewer gets a sense of the absence of human-created noise and that perception alone allows us to look deeper within ourselves. The title clearly relates to the reflection of the trees, shoreline, and a cloud dotted sky in the water, but it also aptly describes the feeling of introspective freedom and self-reflection that I experience when looking at it.
