The river Axe

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 24 April 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I've been eyeing up this shot for some time and was lucky enough to catch the water still before the sluice gates were opened to the sea

Canon EOS 60D 1/6 second F/13.0 ISO 100 31 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

@grouser: As I said to Bill turn around and we have the traffic rushing past, thankfully we have the illusion that photography can offer to capture the idea of peace

Wonderful image Doug, those reflections are ideal and the hint of sunset just tops it off. It's always very satisfactory when that shot in your minds eye comes off.
