Soft muted colours of dusk. Shot taken with 4 sec exposure.
It was rapidly getting very cold and very dark while I was setting up to take this shot. Taken in one of my favourite spots in Tassie.
Best viewed large.

    James… your photos have such consistant quality. The light here is amazing and that water looks almost like a fog.

  • I’m speechless Denis. You really are a special person. I judge my own photos by your comments. Thank you once again.
