The colour is sublime as it runs from vivid to pale across the water and frame. Superb shot Ian.

The water is amazing here. It look like a very smooth glass, may be a mirror.

This series/set is just beautiful. That water is like glass. Doesn't seem like those windmills are getting much of a windy workout.

excellent composition and crystal clear feel and look of this photo! i like the yellow colour of the boat - it sets it nicely apart from the background and the power generators forms a nice line that fades into the distance...
