River Otter, Budleigh Salterton, Devon

By starckimages
As I approached this spot, the reflections were perfect on the surface of the water.
But a young lad - off to the right - threw a stone into the water just as I was about to take the picture. I thought this may have spoiled the shot but, looking at the result, I feel it's improved by the presence of the ripples.

Sometimes the unexpected can produce a surprise result. It's a grand reflection all the same.

Boys have been tossing stones into water for all of time I'm quite sure.

Lovely image and I think the boy did you a favour.....to me, the ripples just add that little bit extra and add character. Very nicely processed, too.
