Coldly crisp frost on the leaves and grasses, defining the foreground. A real 'being there' feel. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Excellent Sarah

Nicely framed by the frosty grasses and not just a straight reflection shot, must have been quite a lovely surprise in the cold light of dawn.

Did you get some radio controlled ducks for Christmas ?

For this current series from Bodiam they all appear to be just in the right place at the right time Wink

Excellent foreground composition with the frosty reeds leading the eye diagonally across to the frosty grass then the angle of the tree & branches bringing the focus of attention back towards the castle itself Smile

Lol re the ducks Jeff - I spent a considerable time waiting for them to get out of the way, it was never gonna happen, there were just too many of them Wink
