Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia

Star trail image from a failed aurora chase a few night ago. Almost full moon- bad for faint aurora, good for lighting up the landscape.

Star trails, single-shot, exposure: 34 minutes, taken by the shores of Lake Cheserys, Aiguilles Rouges, France.

From here you can see the north face of the Mont Blanc massif.
On the right is perfectly visible the Aiguille du Midi lit up for the night.

Like all nights the beautiful alpine lake was alternating phases of complete water stillness with other rippled moments.
So, the reflection in the lake is just the average resultant of this long period of time... a sort of ghost :-)

I've also taken a much shorter shot, just 30 seconds, in a moment of complete stillness, with no wind, etc... and there the mirror reflection was just perfect.
Anyhow, in my opinion, this common urge to get "the perfect reflection" in the water is a "disease which passes in time" :-)
Landscape photography is such a wide field, thus leading to discovery infinite shades and endless different ways to see and read a landscape.

Here you can see a sector of the Milky Way passing above the French side of the Mont Blanc massif.
Night shot, taken on September 13th 2012, from the shores of the beautiful alpine Lake Cheserys (2.211 m), high up in the Aiguilles Rouges above the Chamonix valley (France).

To whom it may concern, I'll be posting soon another image with a perfect mirror reflection of the Mont Blanc massif in the still water of the lake.
Anyhow, I hope you'll take a few moments to see the light conditions of this shot. Please note the amount of light that a good camera can record during an ordinary long exposure, around thirty seconds at high ISO...
It manages to capture not only the light of the distant Chamonix, but, somehow, it seems the universe itself is producing light... filling with a bright veil of hope the dark rippled waters of the lake.
I've found as very evocative this subtle dialogue between light and darkness. Obviously light just barely perceptible to the naked eye!

This picture has recently been published, along with other photos of mine, in the British newspaper Daily Mail.
