....but no Pins Wink

Out with Martin Levers for this morning's no show of the sunrise, so a retreat to Padley. Took a couple of usable images, but not a great morning Sad I used a slow shutter speed to blur the water to emphasise the rocks, littered with leaves and needles from the autumn fall. Smile

I quite like water to look like water - but this is abstract, and the rocks are so .... rocky! The black and gold - and that little bit of light is super. Are super.

Bit of a cliche to say this, but it definitely needs to be viewed large for its quality to be appreciated.
