Bear Valley (CA), Rock Islands, Trees, Long Exposure

Close, but not quite right from a composition standpoint.  The idea was to isolate the cluster of rocks and trees in the middle of the lake.  By standing on boulders next to the lake, I was at least able to keep the cluster within the waters of the lake and not have the tree extend into the rocks and trees, but was unable to completely isolate them.  It was getting dark so, another try on another day.
