I don’t know about you, but my family and I have been making the most of the sunny weather over the past couple of weeks. If there’s one thing I will always try and see when the weather is good, it’s sunrise or sunset.

A reflection of the setting sun in a pond.

Wanting to catch a dramatic sunset, I discovered the exact time I could expect the sun to disappear below the horizon and sent up my drone up the full 120 metres to capture the moment. |Unfortunately the results were disappointing.

You can imagine my surprise when I stumbled across this image on a memory card. It was taken a year ago at the most beautiful spot in the Cotswolds and shows the setting sun reflected in a pond. The original was a little dark so I’ve brightened it slightly and reduced the contrast a little.

I’m very taken by the reflections in the water, not just the sun but the fence posts. I also like the different colours that are reflected from the water and the subtle sun flare (I’m a huge fan of sun flare).

As I do on Sunday’s, I am taking part in the #MySundayPhoto blogging linky hosted by the @Photalife blog. If you like photography, do click on the badge below as you’ll see the best efforts by some amazing bloggers.

  1. I’m a huge fan of reflections too. I don’t think I’ve ever managed to capture the sunrise or sunset in the water. You’ve given me a great idea, thank you! I love that you found this pic from last year too, I don’t look back over mine enough.

  2. Hi John, when photo ideas fail us bloggers are masters at coming up with an alternative. I had to look twice at the reflection of the posts it looks so real! It must have been a beautiful evening. I think sun flare adds a little summeriness to a photo (even in winter). I do look forward to seeing a successful sunset or sunrise photo taken with your drone.


    1. Thanks Debbie. Of course the irony is the next evening the weather was perfect, but I had other plans! I’ll get a sunset pic one day.

    1. Yes, I know exactly what you mean Darren. It does look summer-tastic when sunlight bounces from water in this way.

  3. I too love reflections on water. Shame about the drone sunset, I rarely capture a good sunrise or sunset when I deliberately set out to do so. My best ones have always had a bit of luck about them! I hope you do capture a good drone sunset some day, I’d love to see the result!

    1. I can’t remember the background to this shot. It may very well be that this was an accident, truth be told!

    Aren’t sunsets just so special! I have to admit this looks so good reflected onto the water. Glad you like our photos too #mysundayphoto
