Ponds and reflections

Cloud covers the sunset and produces darks and oranges reflected in the calm water surface of the pond

I went out the other evening to see about getting a lovely sunset picture over a pond in the New Forest. I’d not heard of this pond before (not sure why!) and it looked like a decent size.

I got there and parked up, then wandered off to the pond. Sure enough, it was large, and calm. There were a couple of cars parked up which I assumed to be fishermen, but they were packing up. As I was setting up, the clouds rolled in! So I didn’t get the shot I was after, but I think the shots I got came out very well.

I used a graduated neutral density filter to smooth the water a little as there was a dog playing at the water’s edge.
