Green Point

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Green Point
Green Point
on Wallis Lake.
This scene was captures on a miserable winter afternoon a few miles south of Forster. It would have been a good day to be indoors by a log fire with a glass of Port.
At the other end of the lake the white spots are two herds of Pelicans, I counted in excess of 70 birds.
Taken at 1/1250th of a second, f11.0 and ISO-320.
