Reflections at Rivington

By LilyWren
Taken on a very foggy day at Rivington, Bolton. The light was amazing in that there was very little and you could not see where the sky and water met. It made for some pretty amazing reflections. I wasn't expecting much today due to the weather but have enjoyed this one.

I spotted this fence in the reservoir and tree/shrub that looked perfect. I didn't have to do much post production - just some exposure and contrast fiddling.

Absolutely beautiful - what makes this work so well is the fact that there's no clear dividing line between reality and reflection, they merge seamlessly.

Took one look at the thumbnail and wondered if it was yours! Lovely shot, so clean and uncluttered. Excellent framing and processing - can't fault it at all.
