Photographer's Statement:

This photo is a fun story, I brought home a Fujifilm XT-3 to try out. I was explaining to my parents how good of a camera it was. They don’t know much about photographs but they kinda understood. I really want to express how amazing this camera actually was. So I packed my camera bag and started hiking. I found myself at this breathtaking viewpoint. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The color reflects off the water like a mirror.
