This was taken just a couple of miles from home.
It's a beautiful spot but I've never come away with anything that does it justice.
It's one of the locations that's feeding my desire to go for some 70-200mm L glass.

Thanks for looking,

Dave

the tones and reflections are excellent.

compositionally... interesting that yo've cropped in a lot to loose the tree tops, and the position of the trees, I can see the lure of the semi lit path as a lead line.

one to look at and soak up I think

Ta very much for stopping to look.
Thanks for your observations Ade. It is a crop from an original that has the tree tops and a larger area of water but the real interest is in the centre so I decided to hone in on it.

Have a good (if a little dull) weekend,

Dave

You've captured some good light here. I've been thinking about the 70-200 also.

Thanks Patrick - very belatedly.
You're dead right about catching the light just right down at "The Ponds" Ollie. I've got more than my fair share of duds from there. Went back down again the other day and they were frozen from edge to edge to a depth of about four inches.
