I havent posted in a little while so heres my first for 2009.
Dont know how but i managed to drag myself out of bed to shoot the first sunrise of 2009. Wasnt the best sunrise ever but a nice frost and a calm lake. At around half ten there were about a hundred mad people swimming in the lake for charity. rather them than me as it was still about -3.

Thanks for looking and a happy new year Smile

If we have time? For this, nothing less than all over the wall is good enough - though it works so well even in thumbnail! It has to be the best frost/sunrise shot so far this year - this winter, even - straight in my favourites. How do you catch subtleties of light like that? Stunning, truly... Smile

This really is superb Gary. Nice crisp foreground, while the recession through the mist has rendered the background pleasingly soft. And then there is that reflection!
