Paddling into the sun


I spotted these people in their canoe and couldn't resist taking their picture.

Picture taken mid-afternoon.

This is very nice. The sparkle of the water and the almost silhouette really make this photo for me!
Ellie, you take some wonderful photos, but this one has to be one of the very best. It takes my breath away and really speaks to me.

Beautiful picture Ellie. It can be appreciated on so many levels - you can just enjoy the beauty of it, but I like to read something deeper into it - 2 elderly souls setting off on a journey across the water...

Nice shot Ellie right down to the panoramic presentation, the silhouette and the composition. Well done.

Another lovely image. I'd like to be the chap in front with the hat, who doesn't seem to have to do any of the paddling.
Wonderful one, the quietness of the moment is in your picture : Standing ovation !!

Madam, you produce quite a lot of excellent pictures nowadays. I believeth though wentest for a photographic course or read a library worth of applicable books.

Your 'against the light' pictures are up there with the best in my very humble opinion.
EJWilkins: reply by email - no, no instruction, lots of looking at other people's pictures though
