What a truly gorgeous image Sam with beautiful composition and perfect evening light.

When I first looked at it I swore it was dawn because of the (relative) stillness of the water. But I see it e'en.

Its a lovely, fresh and blue break from your more distopic works.

Best wishes - Jethro

Cheers Jethro, I hadn't realised I had projected misery and squallor via my images but yes I guess the industrial scenes fit that bit somewhat. I am delighted you like this one for its composition, lighting and fresh feel. The stillness that had you thinking it was morning comes from the long exposure which has smoothed an otherwise wind ruffled surface. The man crossing the bridge ( an element I felt necessary ) belies that exposure time since I captured him with a faster shutter speed and incorporated him during the editing .

best wishes, Sam

Thank you Denise, I had a nice afternoon in your territory even though I do find it a bit urban for me. Had to drop by Ropner just to ease the pain :o)

Cheers Andy , the wiggly light reflections give the game away that it wasn't actually still but yes long exposures do give a nice result.

best wishes,

Cheers Clive, it's always pleasing to see my careful compositions are noticed and appreciated. I hate to spoil your detective work however but the photographer in the dark infinity one is a woman and she was behind me and to my right when I was taking shots from here which eliminates her as the pedestrian. I assumed she had packed up when she passed me while I was setting up for the dark version further along but somehow she got there without me even noticing.

kind regards, Sam

And just as you'd expect Clive you can have a Mutley laugh
