Kenfig Pool 2

By achieverswales
Thank you all for your C & Cs yesterday, I have got to the bottom of yesterdays photo not being level even on a tripod with spirit level, the Welsh Olympic Water Skiers practice on this lake! As they have no speedboat to tow them they had to make this lake on a slope for them to get in some practice, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.
Today another from Thursday night, the Canada geese had just flown in for the night all in a line.

A lake on a slope......why didn't I think of that.....would have saved me so much time correcting my wonky shots at L. LomondWinkWink.
No such problem here, Trev: a delightful scene, beautifully captured with the geese still in line astern, nice cloud reflections and the whole bathed in warm evening sunshine.
A perfect spot, so well recorded.

No arguments today hopefully, as this is obviously part of the lake that the water skiers don't use WinkWink
You seized the moment well with this flock of geese Smile
Wonderful light and colours

"Words simply fail me today my friend?" A truly most beautiful image of calm and serenity, a venue crafted by Gods own hands and captured so very beautifully by you alone. A most desirable photograph indeed. The depth of detail and clarity simply as me floundering in your wake. "One day I may capture something as beautiful as this?"
