Been a while since I did much aside from click and comment; DIY commitments coupled with dull weather and sunrise too close to work starting have really cramped my style though it felt like waning skills! Was lucky enough to catch a good sunrise yesterday morning at this spot 10mins walk from the house so I wasn't even late for work! It's the floodlit New Spey Bridge at Grantown on Spey.

Oh Yes. This is a 'good un' Alan.
The elements are beautifully composed. The colour is gorgeous and the light part is particularly well balanced.
Gets my UA today.

Wow what a great response, I'm really chuffed thank you all. Especial thanks to Colleen for her GA, to Jeremy, Phil and Derek for your UAs and Kel, Mark, Andy, Herman, Jeanie, Jeremy, Dougie, Chris, Richard, Howie and Derek for your comments. Helps put the spectre of a drought-ful (photographically speaking) September behind me! Grin

A very well worked and balanced composition captured from a great point of view Alan. There is immediate interest in the perfectly sharp and detailed foreground, whilst at the same time your chosen Shutter Speed has allowed you to capture a beautiful softness in both the water and the sky. The rather unusual light coming from beneath or next to the bridge adding further interest. All in all a great image which rightly deserved many accolades.
