I like how this photo feels dusty and dusky and cool and calm!
Martin Robbins: Thank you Elizabeth, it's a place I certainly enjoy chilling out, fishing! On this day I was just out walking and it was so overcast & dull, I tried sepia smile

Like the treatment on this one Martin different.
Martin Robbins: Thanks Peter; normally I would've shot in colour, but it was so overcast on this day, I tried sepia, to add some interest; pleased you like the effect!
The Colne is a nice river, If it is the same one that goes int the Grand Union Canal at Rickmansworth, I used to fish from the bridge (hemp bridge) with hemp seed for Roach as a lad.
Martin Robbins: Ah, good memories, sounds fun! Yes, it's the very same river. I'm familiar with the canal at Rickmansworth, I've yet to fish the Colne there. The photographed stretch is in Uxbridge. Thanks John smile

On my office Fisher Price My First Computer laptop, I can't see the whole image as one and I thought at first that there was a tree fallen across the river. I thought that would make fishing difficult but now I know that it's a reflection! Looks a good place to relax with the rod.
Martin Robbins: It's very nice Alan smile opposite are farmers fields and at twilight the owls are a common sight!

The sepia works to good atmospheric effect here Martin
Martin Robbins: Thank you Fred, much appreciated smile
A wonderful atmospheric image!
Martin Robbins: Thank you Richard smile
I rather like the deep coppery sepia treatment Martin
Martin Robbins: Thank you Bill smile
The sepia seems perfect in this shot.
Martin Robbins: Thank you Jacquelyn smile It was such an overcast day, I thought I'd experiment; it seemed to compliment the decaying vegetation

It does indeed make it look very interesting, as if the light will soon be going
Martin Robbins: Thanks Lisl smile The light was poor, being so overcast
My son would find this a nice place to spend some time, he is an avid fisherman.
Martin Robbins: Then we are friends, yet to meet smile Thanks Brian
