Taken on a grey day, I was lying down on the rocks on the river bed, although it was a pain that they were on the dark side of the river but, its the safest side for them, hiding away there. You have to agree they look so cute together.

This is beautifully touching. We have dippers on our stretch of the Tyne in Haddington, but I've never seen any young 'uns.

Regards.

It's a great composition and as you say, they make a lovely couple which is one of the attractions of the image.
Being constructive, I wonder if a curves adjustment to boost the contrast would add some extra impact since it seems a wee bit under exposed and flat at present. Perhaps some selective sharpening on the dippers to bring out more eye and feather detail?
