Lake Rudan on a calm day

Autumn Lake Reflection


I'm a sucker for cool reflection photos, and a while back I was visiting Nedre Rudasjön (Lower Lake Rudan) in Handen, and stopped at the cliff at the south end for a chat with one of the anglers. The photo in yesterdays post is from the other lake here. The fisherman told me that the fishing club had just planted a few hundred kilos of fish that morning and all the piers around the lake were filled with hopeful fishers. It was a beautiful day with no wind, and as the water was very calm I figured it was a perfect day for photography. This is the view towards Upper Lake Rudan where you will find the Theatre Barn and the ski club where that upset skier is a member.

In the late 70s, I took a bath in that lake. Suddenly i felt something under my foot. I thought I had stepped on a tree root, but when I went up from the water I understood that it had been a piece of glass. The cut were about two centimeters deep and seven centimeters long. Even now I can remember how it felt. Still - it's a fine lake. :-)

Thanks Abe.

Glad you like this view.

Snow? Who said that? No snow here yet for a while I hope.

That sounds very painful Johnny.

No boats or canoes in this lake Leif.

Hejsan Tove. Jag använder en template som heter Minima som jag tack vare Bengt på Bild och Foto har ändrat lite på. Utförlig beskrivning finns att läsa här.

Beautiful Shot. The reflections are awesome.

Vogon Poet said...

This is another beautiful reflection shot, but I just saw your photo of yesterday post which I like more. Anyway this is perfect, probably a bit too much perfect. Yes, I am absolutely envious...

Steffe said...

As you can guess this is another one of my favorite places in Handen when it comes to reflection photos. And there's always a few people here to talk to.
