A Fishing Pier on Lake Luxembourg

Follow me to the end of this little pier but please watch your step because it's a bit rickety.


I used the Ortonish effect from Picnik on this photo.

I think you are inclined to take this picture ( I mean because I guess you are very tall), and I have the right sensation that I'm there , it's wonderful, FANTASTIC picture!
*** I could not understand about the effect, anyway it's wonderful!

I don't know what the Ortonish effect is, but I like this picture. Really nice composition!

Stickup Artist said...

You really nailed this one! Great color, perspective, depth of field, the clouds reflecting in the water and the water fading to the clear rust color. Great shot James!

Carolyn Ford said...

Ortonish effect...I will look that up! This is beautiful! The composition is SO dang good...way to go, James!

Malyss said...

Ready to follow you! this pier is an invitation! And I guess there are great pictures of reflections to catch when you reach the end...

cieldequimper said...

I'd follow you with pleasure. I wonder why the lake is called like that!

Joanne said...

Ortonish effect.... ! I will look that up, in the meantime this is wonderful as always:)

Francisca said...

I'd be right behind you, James. Fearless is my middle name. What a great shot... I knew I'd like it before it even all downloaded on my screen.

Lois said...

Very nice James! I feel like I could step right into the picture and walk down the pier.

Cheryl said...

Wonderful! My niece just introduced me to Piknik. It promises to be fun!

Genie said...

James, I think that StickUpArtist said it all! Add to those comments the great parallel wood lines and shadows that focus to a point. Just wonderful!

Beautiful...everything about it. I like to use the Ortonish effect.

I hope you are well. I have to remember to link up my reflection photo. Posted it last Friday, but never linked it up!!!

Great shot, James. The colors are amazing and the angel makes it look so inviting.
My inner child wants to race to the end and jump right in ;)

JM said...

Awesome perspective and a beautiful place!

Reader Wil said...

A really great picture and very inviting to walk on it!

Hilda said...

It may be rickety, but it sure looks welcoming! Love your low angle and how you captured the wood's texture.

Beth Niquette said...

I find this photo to be completely charming--I want to walk there. I want to draw this bridge. Wonderful.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Beautiful scenic, serene spot James!
& lovely reflections too!

ruma2008 said...

Yes. The progress may need courage.

However, the view from this top seems to be beautiful.

That is so pretty!

AB said...

That must surely be the bridge where the trolls live! It looks to rickety and rackety
