Photographer's Note

A tree on the shore of Lake Khovsgol, a 2760 square km alpine lake in the North of Mongolia, not far from the Russian border. The lake is 136 km long and 30 km wide in the widest spot. It is the 14th largest source of fresh water in the world, containing between 1 and 2% of the world's fresh water. In winter, it freezes solid, and when I was there in mid-June, at the Southern end of the lake, the ice was just breaking up, and you could still see jeep tracks on the ice from where people drive across it in the winter.

I added some backlight to bring more color to the sky, which was fairly washed out. I cropped a little bit, and I ran it through NeatImage.
