The early morning light and pale pastel colours are beautifully captured, and with the jetty and boulders standing out more starkly against that backdrop, this is a most attractively composed image. So peaceful and refreshing. Excellent shot, Paul.

Thanks all ... no Robert, it was pitch black and in the outside lane with wagons and cars still driving through the wreckage strewn across the 3 carriageways ... more concerned for my safety and the kit Smile

Was going to say shame the camera wasnt higher to stop the posts cutting into the trees on the horizon but I have seen how tall you are! Magical light and what a background!

Cheers guys for your time.

The level of the post tops doesn't bother me Dave as I feel the slight mist has helped to knock back the distant land & trees and provides enough separation for me. That said, the camera was pretty much at full extent here, as I wanted to get just some of the walkway top into the shot rather than it being almost side on. So the only way to probably get that angle would be for some steps and a bigger tripod Smile

A huge thanks Alan for your UA, I'm glad you liked the shot enough to award it Smile Smile

It's a glorious shot. Ta for the tech details re the filters. That helps us aspiring togs a lot.

Cheers Dave. Glad the tech details could help, though having looked at your work there's not much I can teach you that you probably don't already know. Some very nice stuff in your PF.
Lovely soft colours across the lake, nice bold pattern in the pier.

Very serene image Paul, and waxing lyrical to round off the presentation. I'm impressed.

Just setting the scene Jim, just setting the scene Grin

Cheers guys, though technically it's actually two piers/jetties Dougie, you can just make out the legs of the old pier underneath the new one.

Enjoy your day guys,

The beautifully soft colours in this enhance the sense of calm...

Have to admit that I think the jetty is a bit freaky, too mind - but my eyes are a bit funny anyway! Wink

The water was like a mirror at this point Lesley, the jetty's quite sheltered in this location. Thanks for dropping by Smile
