School run

I managed to get out today to get a couple of shots by the river during the sunset. Last night was a very hot one and so was the day too. Anyway I haven't much to say on my photoblog today so just relax and enjoy the image.

Oh by the way I haven't done much to this one except the vignetting, the colour was the reflection from the sunset on the river. I can hear someone say that I've manipulated the colour, honestly I haven't here.

Also tomorrow's image is another landscape and I hope you like it too.

It's already been said, but this is a classically beautiful and serene image. Just add some tinkling water, soft music and relaaaaaaaax. Now then sir - open wide and we'll have a look at that cavity!

One of the better duck/sunset shots I've seen which, I admit, isn't many.
Beautiful shot Jide...the colors of the water and textures created by the ripples work together beautifully.
Lovely shot Jide, love the colors!
