The Wetlands

By Mynett
Now for something different......

Many thanks for the lovely comments and awards on my venture into the unknown.... portraits and layering, It has been a challenge, and has been very enjoyable, many thanks to Rog and Dave for the inspiration, and help in giving it a go.

I needed some peace and quiet on Saturday evening, and the sunset looked half promising, so we took a ride out to the Fenn's National Nature Reserve - a place I find so very beautiful and so very peaceful. I was thrilled to see the mist rise as the sun laid her head, adding an eerie look over the wetlands, the birds cries adding to the feeling in the otherwise stillness and quiet. I have never felt happier.

The sunset was not the best ever but some lovely tones were reflected in the waters. It is a shame that I could not get close to the water edge, but this is a very dangerous place to wander away from the paths.

I can understand why you sayIt might not the best sunset ever but what makes it special is the light, the warm remaining colours in the sky and the alternating bands of colour and silhouetted vegetation. Very nice shot, Linda.
I have still to get my head around layers......still a completely closed book to congrats. on your efforts here.
