A morning at the pond.
Hatchet Pond nearly Beaulieu is always a good location and at least once a winter I will spend a few hours there. It had been a rare cold night with some frost in places but the ground in the Forest is so wet from the recent rains it was not frosted. There was a just little mist over the water and I liked the red glow from it once the sun had risen.

Very nice image with lots of atmosphere well worth getting up early for, composition is great and it look fantastic at full screen with the new higher resolution, well spotted taken and edited.

This is a cracking image Alan. The golden glow from the sun is just magical and with the new file size filling my big screen it fair lights up the room! It's a pity that blasted clump of weed has spoiled the reflections on the LH side but no matter, it is gorgeous and it gets a ten from me!

Yeeee Haaaaaa, thanks to Keith, and the Boss's good grace I can enjoy this gorgeous shot full screen without and reduction in quality.
It's magical shot with the golden glow of the early morning sun streaming through the gap between the trees and working its magic on the pond. Atmosphere by the bucket load, excellent shot luv it to bits.

A super image with plenty of mood to offer the viewer. the sunrise is a bonus but being a little too close to the LH edge leaves the RH side somewhat darker than I would have liked.

Sorry Alan late with comment, a really excellent image, most impressive and all the better now that it can be viewed in hi res.
Something puzzled me as I zoomed it and saw a road sign in the trees top left, wondering why it would be there. Then realized there must be a lane just this side of the trees and it is for directions to a left turn.
Very well done and another ten from me.

Gorgeous Alan, can't add anything except that it's beautiful and haunting and the first thing I thought of when seeing this was 'Lake Placid' !
