Elvismartinezsmith got the decisive moment right when he took this photo.
The red-orange hue brought about by cross processing adds character to this photograph, and the boat gives the image an element separate from the lake, but if elvismartinezsmith hadn’t pressed the shutter just as the pole was lifted, this photo wouldn’t be quite as impressive.

The photo was taken in Agbodrafo lake in Togo using a Canon EOS Series camera loaded with Fuji Velvia 100F film. If you want to see more of elvismartinezsmith’s scenic Travel photos, check out this album.
