Such perfect, simple symmetry. I love the mossy banks reaching out to the reflection.

EJWilkins: Wasn't sure how much of the reflection to capture, decided the "symmetry" concept was useful.

I've never been to Exbury Ellie: maybe we should go on an expidition there one day
EJWilkins: It's well worth a day out Chris, it takes several hours to walk right round the gardens.
Saw something else you'd like to day too, several things actually wink
This is a nice picture of a lovely little bridge Ellie and I like the hint of sky in the reflection but not above the bridge itself.
EJWilkins: I think your comment says it all, it's a nice little bridge in a pretty setting. I only wish I had the same design flair for our own garden!

What a pretty bridge. Very well captured Ellie!
EJWilkins: "Pretty" sums it up nicely smile
A very attractive picture Ellie...I like this.
EJWilkins: I think you'd like Exbury Ron. Not as grand as Bodnant, it's a very relaxing day out with plenty of little surprises
Charming little bridge in charming countryside. Nice shot.
EJWilkins: The bridge was carefully positioned by somebody with a flair for landscaping
What a lovely little bridge. The reflections look great.
EJWilkins: It is lovely, and quite little too

A very attractive scene, Ellie. I especillay like the patch of blu sky reflected in the water.
Ironically since I know little about plants not like Myke1, this is the sort of place I feel most at home.

You know how many times Aksel hammered it into me - don't forget the reflection (he has something similar going about shadows). Great picture - the sun seems to be shining over england smile
