Water in the shade with a reflected subject in the sun is a great photographic scenario.
Add maple trees in their peak fall color to that background and the opportunity value increases significantly.
That is the scenario that can be found in the fall at The Tarn in Acadia National Park.
The number of composition opportunities at this location is a bit overwhelming and changing continuously as the sun rises and the wind ebbs and flows.
Selecting an image to share from the hundreds captured is the resulting challenge.
This is an example of telephoto lens being ideal for landscape photography.
Most often a 100-400mm lens is in my landscape kit and on this day it was the excellent Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Lens
Many of my favorite landscape images have been captured within the range offered by this lens.
