A 2 minute single exposure photo of Coniston Water in the English Lake District.
The colours in this photo are exactly as the original RAW file - the neutral density filters that I was using in front of the lens have confused the camera's auto white balance but in this instance I quite like the purple tint it has chosen.
To achieve this square composition I used a tip that I got a while ago from John Leech for composing in a rectangular viewfinder for an eventual square crop - I turned the camera to a vertical portrait type orientation and composed it using the bottom of the viewfinder and the two sides - you're then just left with the top of the composition to estimate which was easy in this instance due to all that sky.
