    November last year and another promise of fog saw me up before dawn (again) and driving down to try and capture some soft images. This one took about 90 minutes as I waited for fog to lift, the sun to light up the islands and a nice reflection appear. I could get 2 out of the 3 and this was the best compromise. I like the slightly waving reflection but am unsure about the geese. The minimalist in me thinks that I should clone them out, any thoughts. Ken

    Great photograph! I would leave the gease where they are. They were there in reality, and they contrast nicely against the mist on the water, not reaching into the trees on the islands.

    Now you’re really starting to piss me off, Ken. If I drove a similar distance from my home, this is what I’d see:

    Another gorgeous image and I agree with Erik, keep the geese.

    Paul just to annoy you some more. The wait was 90 minutes the drive closer to 45. I was lucky enough to be able to pick where I wanted to work and Cumbria seemed like a nice place apart from the rain. Ken

    It’s a fine shot, Ken. I’d leave the geese. If the reflection were perfect, I might take a different view.

    Paul, your pylons have a certain stark beauty about them. A different beauty from Derwentwater, but a beauty of their own nevertheless.

    Thanks Jeremy. Sorry, Ken. Didn’t mean to hijack your post.
