Was the water really that colour or did you edit the colours?

It really was spectacularly blue in real life.  Up there the was is crystal clear.  But at the right time of day, the light hits refracts at the right angle to bring out the deep blues!

That being said, I tweaked the contrast to bring out more of those colors.

It's great! It reminds me of one of the best holiday I had. How did you make such a long shot?

I'm glad you like it :D Where did you go for your best holiday?

You mean the shutter speed? If so, it's a pretty fast shot at 1/250th of a second :)

It was at a lake by the mountains. I don't know it's english name. o///O The weather was awesome and the water was as blue as in your photo. *o*

I don't know much about photography. What does fast shot means?
I meant how did you made a picture this high. When I use my camera the pictures all have the same size. Did you cute the edges?

Do you live near the lake or was it on a travel? It must have been great to sit there.

That sounds incredible! Was it high up in the mountains?

Oh, I was referring to the shutter speed. So essentially how fast the camera blinks when taking the photos (which determines how long light reaches the sensor or film).

Yeah, I cropped the image to make it taller. I believe I made the dimensions 9x16.

It is in California, but nowhere near where I live. The drive there is 12hrs xD I had gone on a backpacking trip there with a couple friends. It's a lot of work carrying all our gear, but such an adventure! We set up our tent with views of the lake and mountains :D
