After my recent experiments with off camera flash I felt the need to get back to more ‘instinctive’ photography where everything seems to happen without effort and I am lost in the moment.
As if to order, I was blessed with a perfect morning and headed down to the lakes. Mist floated lightly in a muted world and the only signs of life were a distant pair of courteous grebes and a nearby warbler flitting low among the reeds. All was quiet – even the lone Canada Goose that glided into view barely rippled the lake surface …
… and for a few moments, time stood still.
