Lake Totems

According to the dictionary a totem is a natural object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem.  In my travels I came across something called a Lake Totem.  The idea is to photograph a lake when the water is completely still, like glass.  Then you rotate your photo so that the horizon is vertical.  Voila, you have a lake totem.  Here are mine taken at Lake Kashagawigamog, Ontario.  For good measure the first one is the original before rotation.
