Russia, Altai Republic
A rare moment when water of Srednee Multinskoe lake is not covered by ripples and the mountains are not in haze. The image was taken about 40 minutes before sunrise. It was still quite dark, and eyes could hardly distinguish colors, but polarizing filter and long exposure allowed to capture the violet light of awakening sun.
Nikon D300, Sigma 24-70/2.8 lens, polarizer, iso200 30mm f/11 15s
