It had been four and a half years since Dave and Richard had seen each other when we met up in Yorkshire this summer. Richard had grown at least 6 inches in that time. Now as they walk together chatting they seem more on an equal footing although Dave is seven years older than his brother. A very special time for my two sons and for us all.

A very evocative image and as others have said, so different from your usual. What a lovely reminder of a special time. Love the way you have isolated the 2 figures and their reflections but with the sense that they are together.

What a lovely scene. And the lack of detail in the highlights works very well in this instance, concentrating the viewer on the figures in a world of their own. Excellent.
