Excellent !! I like this one Alan. Great use of the ice as an effective curved lead in, clouds opening up nicely to frame the sun and good colour sets the scene. However i........(just teasing)

Gone for the darker, richer purple tones here, Al. A small but.... is the image missing a focus of attention? My vision travels around but doesn't seem to settle.

Yeah, i think you are right Dave. I thought that when I was shooting and agian when processing, Thought about photoshopping something into the water (like Nessie!) but that would be cheating so instead I threw it to the wolves to see what you all made of it! Grin

You've certainly made very good use of the cracked ice in the foreground to create a lovely lead-in here. Warm light, very appealing.

I like this very much Al, at first I thought it out of balance with contrasting sky colour and Ice, but the more I look at it the more it works. Excellent composition, exposure and presentation matey.
