Just a snapshot, but one with some personal resonance for me. My Grandfather was a keen amateur photographer, but he died when I was quite young. I eventually inherited his camera when I was about 19 (it had been given to his mate first and was then returned to my Gran by his widow after he died). It was that camera which first got me into photography. My Grandparents lived near Chorley in Lancashire and Anglezarke Reservoir was one of their favourite spots. I haven't been back to the area for years, but we stopped off on the way home after a week in the Lake District just before Christmas. The other reason this shot is personal is because my fiancee is also from Chorley. Anglezarke is special to her - because its her surname! So, although this is only a snap it somehow felt appropriate to upload it today.

I wish all my 'snapshots' would turn out as beautifully as this. Great story too. Well done.

I'd also like a few "snapshots" like this one.
Great capture and silhouettes.
