I thought you got yourself cornered, after looking at your yesterday's post. Please forgive me, I was wrong.
Kathryn: cornered in by the lack of light

I immediately thought this was a close-up of Astrid's moon bursting through the trees the other day, Kathryn. It's not, of course, but it makes quite a pair, if you don't mind my saying so. smile

I especially like the reflected glow on those top reeds and the fact that there is no border! It's lovely how this floats on the page.
Kathryn: Thanks, Ginnie.

I have a few more with the tops more prominent, which I may post in the next few days.

whispered a quiet 'omg' when the pic loaded. love the shot, Kathryn.
Kathryn: Terry, truth be told I whispered a quiet omg as I watched it unfold and then slip away.
Oh Kathryn, this is absolutely magnificent. I am speachless
Kathryn: Isn't it amazing the things we are given? I am speechless so often as I look around this beautiful world of ours.
This is beautiful Kathryn. It is like a pool of molten gold. I love the way the grasses are touched with gold against the dark background. Well done.
Kathryn: Thanks so much, Ingrid. I was a little worried that shooting directly into that ball of fire would result in blown out photographs. A few were, but a few blessed me with that pool of molten gold.

Ten times BRAVO Kathryn to this one, that reed is fabulous, without words this time tonguetongue the glow.......
Kathryn: Ten times thanks, Astrid. I've been to that place many times and taken quite a few photos of those reeds. This time i caught the sun as she spread her golden rays over the earth before slipping off to sleep.
Wonderful effect from the reeds tinged with light. I particulary like those that are seperated from the pool of reflected light. Did you take any from a slightly lower point of view?
Kathryn: smile You know i did, Mike. Will post them in the next few days. Again, isn't amazing what light light does?

Hack...hack hack....hack!
Choked on my tongue!

Halos on the floating reed heads are wonderful. So is the golden pond through the reed bed.
Kathryn: Ray, are you ok? Should I call the paramedics, although at this point, it may be too late smile

Thank you so much for your lovely compliment.
