Great shot Ian. What I like about this image is the detail you can see in the foreground under the water, it gives it another dimension.

Do you make these at whatever time of day takes your fancy, or do you stick to tried and tested rules such as dawn and dusk?

@Curly: Hi Curly, I don't usually get a lot of choice on when I can do my photography so I just take my shots where and when I get the chance. This particular one was in normal daylight rather than at dawn or dusk.

I look at your picture and I feel the softness of the water and the hardness of the rock. Annierita
