By rhiw_com  
Llyn peninsula,

Took this last July, about half an hour after sunup, the light was amazing, and I took several shots before it all disappeared.

F9, 1/80 sec, Lens @ 80 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter.

Please view...Large...if you can.

Hope you like it, and many thanks for your comments and clicks on my last upload.

Regards to you all, and thanks for looking, Tony
