An evening walk down to the boat-landings at Coniston gave me this shot........with the dying embers of twilight
adding a hint of colour.............very low light-levels, hand-held, (I never use a tripod !), & hope for the best !!.Grin

Thanks for the response to 'Better Half'......I appreciate your comments !!

For those 'ripple' queries.........yes, I took a number of shots, throwing stones to create variety in the
reflections.......Smile

A beautiful end of day image, the low light and soft warm mauves heralding approaching night: and the icing on the cake for me are the expanding f/g ripples.
Beautiful shot, Keith.

Beautiful light - romantic Smile

I also dislike tripod use - generally though it's because that sets the camera in one spot, and it's a pain to readjust, easier to move a body that a tripod......
