Well, I thought they made a nice pair…. Wink

I was having a tough time on this, the last dawn shoot of the trip. The sun was supposed to light up Pyramid Mountain (a bit of which is sort of visible in the reflection) but a bank of cloud got in the way.

Layers of softness, of various sorts.

Like your composition here Julian. The Mountains out of focus reflection gives a lovely balance to the sharp detail of the Dandelion head.
