Ox Stomach by KirlianCamera Ox Stomach by KirlianCamera

Don't laugh at the title, this is how the swamp where the picture was taken is named. I am clueless as to why, I guess because of the shape of the bay nearby. If you click at the link next to "Location" You will understand what I am talking about. It is a wonderful place for photographs both landscape and wildlife since the swamp is a habitat for many birds and the beach is grand. It is also a good place for model helicopter enthusiasts to test their skills and crash their helicopters as well. Don't ask, long story, I will leave it to ~justeline to tell it when she uploads a shot from that place.

Anyway the reflections were awesome as there wasn't much wind, all in all good conditions for photography...but for the mosquitoes and even though we were at the heart of winter they were alive and bitting :)

Hope you like it

so good to be back here again on dA and looking at proper photography. been spending a bit of time at redbubble lately, and no offense to anyone, but i see a lot of heavily manipulated photos there, not to mention hdr and textures just to compensate. i like the organic, reality of this capture. very well composed and exposure is nicely handled as usual. well done! oh and happy easter by the way. but something tells me you crashed a toy heli here? hahahaha jk

I really like the curved mud lines and leaves (or flowers?) in the foreground breaking the otherwise "spotless" mirror. :)

Really, you were throwing flowers on the water before you took the shot?? You did an excellent job placing them randomly on the ground/water. :thumbsup: :)

I can see you walking around in the wild looking for flowers... :giggle: ...although, it's not nice to rip their heads off... :no:
