I decided to detail the reeds and foreground...as it was so much part of the strange illusion and deep reflection of this view.
Very complex...but I like the final depth.

The ghostly center tree was deeply set back from the morning sun on the pale snags.

This is a beaver pond/lake. He/she builds a dam to raise the water level. This increases access for the beaver to cut, drop and float edible trees into the water. Small limbs are used for dam & lodge.

The rise in water level however floods and kills Conifer trees along the lake's edge
creating the Snags. Like pale skeletons of trunk & limbs.

Inspiration at the noisy roadside.
in the mud. with the bugs biting.
