Clean reflections

By NDODS    
An image which I found tucked away in the darkest depths of my hard-drive.

Thank you all so very much for your open and honest comments and critiques following yesterdays upload 'Oh deer'. It is refreshing to known that you can be honest and in turn provide me with a wealth of knowledge and understanding in order that I can take my photography forward.

I hope that you all have a great day, Julie's raised bed is in position ready for a delivery of top soil, Kizmet is chasing the cat around the conservatory and Julie has just left for work.

For me I have no idea what the day will bring, but all too often that's the best kind of day.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Wonderful DOF and reflections Nathan composed with great care and attention, wish I had a tenner for every tin I used in my Army days.

Alright clever **** it's well good work from you today i'm impressed Nathan, have a good day and don't get brassed off. Must tell you about yesterday out on the marsh met a lovely chap and he let me try out his Canon F 5.6 800mm lens on my 7D it was out of this world. I was taking pictures of ducks in the next county
