Clear Water Lake

by Handie in The Warm Months

Clear Water Lake is in Northern Manitoba, Canada. The water is so clean and clear that you can see 30 feet down. In some cases you can see a fish nibbling on your hook.

We visit every summer and we fish and swim here. I miss it so much! You don't know what you've got until you don't have it any more :(

    Beautiful - I think this is a great example of one of my favourite types of landscape photography. There is a level of reality to this shot that is so relateable - it reminds me to appreciate that the world is beautiful and it's right outside waiting for me to enjoy. It feels like you were strolling around on your holiday, looked up, and thought 'isn't this just a special moment'... then managed digitalise that very moment as a block of pixels.

    It's nice to see grand photos taken during the golden hours with bumped up saturation and incredible cloud formations...etc... but for me it is nicer to see a shot that feels real. For example, this shot reminds me of the last time I was on the island off the coast of my town :)

      Thank you! It's a sort of a "look out" point at the end of a walking trail. I's a beautiful place!
