I love the simple beauty of the reeds and the reflection on the water.
Very beautiful.

Hi Nancy and Michelle, thanks a lot for your kind comments on this shot.

This was a film shot on Fuji Velvia (yes, fill still exists...) as I recently picked up a second-hand Pentax for a good price. It's fun shooting film again although I'd be the first to admit that nothing beats the immediate feedback of digital! #5279579
