V1 is perfect in every way from the wet sand to the swirly sky, the title is fantastic too.
V2 offers a wonderful Spring image, you couldn't have made more perfect with the lambs and ducks, a pretty picture of contentment Andy.

V2 is such a sweet shot and the light is sooo lovely and rich, Andy.

NOW THEN...V1 is really exquisite. Not just the light and colour in the sky AND reflected in the sand and water...but also...those reddish clouds which seem to be spiralling up and outwards from the right! Marvellous...

Your timing in v1 is impeccible, Andy. The tiny ridges of sand partially exposed is a great choice, giving a rippled effect.
Would never in a million years guessed that v2 is yours....I reckon the site has been hackedGrin

And a photographers dream too Andy, such wonderful light and colours in v1. I think v2 should be uploaded in its own right, it is such a lovely and peaceful riverside scene with wonderful light, colours and reflections and of course the birds and beasts which enhance it still further
