A Time For Reflection

By BertC  
Captured last weekend at Anchor Bay; I managed to catch my son (Nicky) unaware as he sat on a bollard lost in thought .... the late afternoon light hitting the scene was quite a sight.

His state of reflection .... coupled with that produced by the late afternoon light .... ergo the title to the frame.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Cheers Wink

You'd best thank Nicky as he gives balance to the shot and in my opinion it would fail without him.
