That's a lovely bit of observation, Tom and a very effective image - it creates a sense of the depth and movement of the gorge that a straight shot from the edge would surely have failed to do. Graham

Many thanks Graham. The reflection caught my eye and the gorge seemed to be the perfect backdrop. Glad to hear you agree with the composition. It's about a 100 foot drop to the river so a level head is required on a shot like this. :)

Best regards,

Thanks LM. If you move too fast through this landscape you miss little jewels like this. :)

All the best, Tom

on the first glimpse, I didn't recognice, that there is difference in level. A cute optical deception. But 100 foot drop, wow!!!
