Water as one of the primordial elements has been a constant source of fascination for the human imagination, and offers a host of stunning images for photographers. The quietness of a lake in the mountains, reflecting the beauty of its pristine natural environment, forms a fascinating contrast to the swift flow of a brook running through the forest undergrowth, for example. To better capture the brilliant colors and contrasts in images of natural scenery, photographers can use polarizing filters. However, taking really good shots is sometimes more about having a bit of background knowledge and creative thinking than any special accessories.
