Twice As Nice

By Maddie
Taken in the forest with john Giddings last weekend, turned out to be a lovely sunset, so may have a few different variations as the evening went on.

Don't forget it is a Panoramic and needs to be viewed large Smile

Thanks for your time Smile

You've taken an excellent photo here. I'm pretty sure I know this pond ( North West New Forest, a tiny hamlet beginning with a big f ) and I've visited it numerous times only to be confronted with less than ideal conditions. One day I'll take a goodun here. Love your tography, Alan.

P.S. If you go further on and down the hill, there's a pool with a brook that maybe a good photo opportunity. I took one from there and it got a lot of interest ( for me anyway ).
