Everything fell into place earlier, camera in the boot of the car as always, a hour free to take a walk in the sunshine, and an obliging subject.

Couldn't ask for better!! other than perhaps having my tripod...shot taken hand held trying not to topple into the lake.

Thanks for looking.

Superb shot, the detail immaculately captured and those iridescent colours show up so well against that b/g tone.

This is amazing just because it was hand held, how do you manage to get such sharp results without a tripod?
