Evening on the marsh

By martinw  
Over the weekend we were at last treated to a spectacular winter sunset. This was it at Newtown on the IOW. What this shot can't convey is the overwhelming noise from the roosting geese, curlew, oyster catchers etc etc. A wonderful experience.

Thanks for looking.

Haha, it looks so tranquil, but I can imagine the racket Smile

This is a beaut Martin! The sky is very subtle and, unless you checked out the large version (worth it IMHO) you might be tempted to say it was plain, but it ain't. I also like the way those posts lead into the frame.

Cheers, Goggz

Hey Martin,

I like how you kept the top of the posts in the water. It makes a good like that way. And the big version looks sharp to me. We'll see about a bigger version.
