    Wow, Nadine. I didn’t know that early light and reflections could look so golden! Beautiful hue.

  • worth the 3.30 am start! but sadly, it was too cluttered for simple landscapes – this is only a fraction of the full image. Thanks for the ‘wow’ my friend!

    3:30 am sounds like silly o’clock, Nadine, but it was definitely worth the early start if this marvellous golden image was the result… Love the way you have composed this crop.

  • “silly o’clock” is absolutely right, deni – wouldn’t do it often but it was an expedition and you have to make sacrifices for those!! thanks so much for your comment and fav – lovely to have shared this with you, my friend!

    Definitely worth the 3.30am start Nadine to catch that gorgeous golden glow, not to mention the duck of course. 3.30am is dedication to the cause.

  • thanks elaine! I had forgotten that we weren’t on daylight savings time anymore when I said ’let’s have a dawn shoot’!!
