Secret lake


Secret lake
The small pond in Woodshaw Woods. I used a Quality Street wrapper to give this unusual colour & softness.

Could be a prehistoric Mars, I like the sky. Which chocolate did the wrapper come off John?

Clever shot, John! It looks rather eerie and mysterious.----Why do I sometimes have to resubmit my comment several times???

Excellent subject and well composed. Great reflections. Very clever idea John, however colour is a bit strong for me! Would have loved to see the natural colours as well.

not really my cup of tea, colours are way too rich and look as though they have been painted on afterwards. if it weren't for the unrealistic colours i would have liked it
