This was a day for a quick visit to the banks of the reservoir, a place where I don’t often wander. During my hour or so there it was evident that not many others get down into those willows either! Just beyond the undergrowth is the lake, overlooked by a tiny island which hosts a heronry.
At first there didn’t appear to be much to shoot, the sun was bright and the shadows were deep. Wandering around the maze of limbs I got into the zone and saw the beautiful light. Below are six more images. I let the sun in some images and quite like the flare.
