Reflections at Drum Bridge 8.1 by Gerard1972 Reflections at Drum Bridge 8.1 by Gerard1972
Reflections in the River Lagan at Drum Bridge in South Belfast, Northern Ireland, on a fine evening in mid February.

I have photographed this scene a few times before, as I like the shape of these trees, but I think this evening provided some of my favourite views so far.

This shot is an alternative version of the scene below. Here I have tried to make the colouring more subtle and cool, perhaps less dramatic, but maybe more realistic.

This is the perfect photo I was always looking for. Just one word came into my mind when I first saw this one..."wow".

The colors are awesome, beautiful different shades of red. The reflection has been captured perfectly, the composition is awesome. I really like that the lake creates some deeper colors than the sky and I love that tree to the right with it's beautiful ramification.

The clouds are beautifully lighten by the setting sun and create a great combination with different shades of blue. The overall picture is crisp and makes me feel the beauty of nature. I wish I could be there right now and take a deep breath...outstanding work!

Very pretty :D I like how saturated the sky looks in the water.

I once was taking pictures like this a few weeks ago at a lake in Indiana and the reflection and the sky looked exactly the same, so I turned my camera upside down and took a few shots. Later when I was editing, I couldn't even tell which ones were the upside down ones and which weren't!
