SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

I would have loved to sit here and watch as the light faded and those beautiful colours vanished as contented memories. You have captured difficult natural lighting with skill and applomb, Pavan and given us a scene of serenity and immense beauty, here. This is exquisite, and hugely romantic.

@SOUL AFLAME: Many thanks my friend:)

gavin hart from Gold Coast, Australia

I think your choice of level for the foreground is spot-on, in fact essential to the success of this really lovely image. IMHO more light would have been detrimental to the beautiful mood you have preserved here. Shots like this really make it worthwhile to visit your blog.

@gavin hart: You are very kind Gavin. Thank you:)
