This was taken last Thursday evening the day before my last upload from here . Normally there are 4 boats each side of the little jetty and that was what I was hoping for . Unfortunately 2 boats were out on the reservoir and it was soon to get dark .Also I didn't really want a fisherman in the scene but he wasn't for giving up . I was bitten terribly by the midges but nobody else got a bite . Many thanks for recent clicks and comments .All very much appreciated ...Phil

You should have started throwing pebbles into the water near his line!! That would have shifted him..... probably after you at a rapid rate of knots!! TongueGrin The idea was good, the colours and light look good, but I agree with you re 4 boats and no angler.

You obviously have very tasty blood, Phil Wink. A lovely composition, and I have to say I rather like the inclusion of the fishermanSmile Carol

What a beautiful lakescape! Although he is dividing the frame into two, I like to see him to be there. What ı like most is the pink hue penetrating into the blue and the shadows of the boats.

Two anglers v. one photographer at dawn would have been not contest Sad
But both anglers look quite peaceful as well as giving a scale to the scene. Just a shame that the one at the front couldn't help your composition by standing about three metres to the left Wink

I quite like it with the fisherman, but can also visualise it without him, wonderful subtle colours.

A wonderfully composed and clearly thought out composition, which without the added incumbent would I feel loose its edge.

Nice not-quite symmetry. Which is by far the most interesting sort.

Honestly, it wouldn't have hurt him to move just for a minute or two! Anyway, it's still a lovely image Phil!

It's strange, but when I were a lad and used to go on holiday with my mum & dad and there were midges around, mum would always get bitten, but they left me and dad alone! Wink
Anyway, a cracking shot Phil, withor without the fisherman, and worth getting bitten for! Smile
