Less is more! This fine art photograph in B&W emphasises a single compositional element, has limited texture and a black and white rendition. Hence, an excellent example of minimalism in photography. This solitary signpost and its reflection in a lake were found somewhere along the shores of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) in the canton of Vaud in Switzerland. It was a quiet day with a hazy sky, fog and just a few streaks of clouds. A great day for shooting minimalist photographs around the lake. The mountains behind the lake are not visible, because of the haze and fog. This proves the point that it is more often great photography weather than you think.
