Titanic Chipstead Lake and Chicks...

By NDODS    
This was one of the images I managed to captured whilst on respite at Chipstead Lakes. The setting was idilic, however the weather not so, most of my days were confined to indoors, however when there was a break in the clouds I did managed to capture a few photographs. I am off to hospital today to have a series of nerve blocks in my spine to help control my pain, so I won't be around for most of the day. I shall however if I am feeling well enough, shall pop on later to admire and comment on your I am sure wonderful images.

Missed you all

Regards Nathan

What a big wide world out there for those chicks. I envy their freedom. Lovely shot, beautiful light and space.

Hope all goes satisfactorily and effectively for you today, Nathan: nicely chosen viewpoint to capture the 'sitting ducks' pointing the eye into the scene.

Nathan this is brilliant - the formality of the composition combined with the free-flowing movement of clouds and reflections.
Welcome back, I was hoping you'd be around this week - I have a picture of your Dungeness paintbrushes to upload some time! Hope the hospital procedure goes well.

Looks quite idyllic, Nathan. Your composition with sky and reflection centred suggests a vortex drawing our view (and the chicks) inwards and onwards. Gorgeous tones too.

Great to see you back; you have been missed. Wishing you all strength.

I'm seeing more and more in this. The foreground is like the prow of a ship sailing into the cloud reflections. Hence the Titanic reference, I guess... Anyway it adds to the sense of movement. It's beautiful and it's different, and I'm fed up with same-old images. Have a UA.
