Taken back in july. This was a view from a small Reservior we stopped off at on our way home from warwick castle one day. It was such a hot day. I found this spot by the waters edge shaded by the tree. I just had to take 5 minutes to cool down.
Thanks everyone for all your previous comments.

Great colours and composition - the tree makes a perfect frame. The large version really shows how much detail you've captured.

not too keen on the border/presentation, but the scene itself is well caught with nice saturated colours.

I really like this one Chris, the old tree is wonderful and makes a great focal point. The gentle reflection adds to the scene and the textures within this pic are lovely.

Thank you everyone for the comments.. I`ve not been on much this week as i`ve not been too well. I`m trying my best to catch up with everyone.
Thanks for the map Doug. But I`m sure you must have been talking to grandma lol. Myself and Dawn are really looking forward to spending 5 or 6 days in Scotland in a couple of weeks. I`ve been promising Dawn a trip there for nearly two years now. At least we wont have to fight off those pesky midges this time of the year.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Chris

Happy to be 30, this is very good Chris, a new camea means a lng learning curve again, why bother other than the lure of new toy'? I know the feeling having bought the D200 and then hearing the S5 is just around the corner.

All the very best

I think this is a real quality shot, beautifully sharp. with the strong green colour at the back I feel kind of brings out the colour on the tree well.
Great work.

That tree has wonderful character and twists, and the water reflections are lovely, this is a really nice composition.
