Skimmer

By Goggz
I have a thing about Nant Gwynant and keep getting drawn back there, especially if there is mist in the morning. This is from Llyn Dinas just as a cormorant took off from the far shore...

Wish I'd had the 300/1.7 combo on, but this was taken with a 70-200. Glad to have got it anyway! Smile

Thanks for looking,
Cheers, Goggz

Superb light and atmosphere with all that mist clinging to the water surface and with the bird skimming along the surface.

Great atmosphere, made even better with a crop from the left to remove the trees

Fabulous Pete, just love the atmosphere too, I know what you mean about Gwynant... I always find myself there, and Llyn Dinas on the way when i'm around that way Smile

I think it could work both ways, because I quite like the trees..

Excellent photograph. Personnally, I'm rather glad you didn't have the 300/1.7 combo on.

Hmmm, to chainsaw or not to chainsaw... Wink

Thanks everybody for your kind comments. I've enabled mods in case you'd like to chainsaw it Smile

And James, You might well be right! It wouldn't be the same without seeing the bigger environs.

Cheers, Goggz
