    A fantastic location and wonderful light.

  • Cheers Dave, was a magic morning – this was about 25 – 30 minutes priot to sunrise (a particularly bright morning) and the colour disappeared soon after this image unfortunately.

    Jason I admire your work. The combination of the still and moving water, the texture of the rock and then the colours all combine superbly. A well thought out and executed picture. A favourite for sure.

  • Thanks mate for the awesome comment, much appreciated :D
