Ink Black and Stars...

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and votes following by 'Riding Out' upload.

Todays image was captured last week whilst out and about with both camera and Support Worker. I appreciate that the best time had passed for capturing lowlight's but I was rather intrigued by the density of the inky blueness and the reflections on the pools.

I hope that you have a wonderful day, I shall be taking in easy after a rather terrible afternoon and evening yesterday...

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

An excellent low light, long exposure image, Nathan.
The rich 'blueness' makes a good background for the main subject.
It would be interesting to turn it upside down!

A great image Nathan, as Richard says, it would work both ways up... Hope you have a peaceful weekend.

Nice small aperture, giving twinkling lights against the dark blue sky.
You were up late(!), so the blue must be incidental lighting from the refinery?
It's a really nicely presented image, Nathan.
