The Natterjack Pond

Stuart and I took a trip out to Ainsdale last Saturday afternoon. It was cold but dry. We were both taking our new Manfrotto tripods for a spin. When we got as far as the Natterjack pond we stopped. The pond was completely frozen and the sun was low. I tried a few bracketed exposures for merging later. I think this is my favourite of the bunch.
