Totnes Plains - First morning of Winter

Totnes Plains - First morning of Winter

Photo Information
The Plains area of the River Dart in dense freezing fog, during the golden hour of the first morning of winter. St Johns church lies across the salt marsh in Bridgetown and the form of Totnes Bridge, beyond is just discernable in this hazy atmosphere.

Atmospheric - I like it.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

Really like this, Phil. What makes it for me are the watery sun (& reflection) together with the line of mooring bouys leading up the river. Cracking shot - you can feel the cold !
Best regards

Many thanks Stridey for your encouraging and considered comments 😊 I recently watched 'Turner's Thames' on the BBC, where Matthew Collings explored how Turner, made light the vehicle of feeling in his work, and how he found inspiration for that feeling in the waters of the River Thames. I think that whilst studying light in it's myriad interactions with sky and land is already inherent in my photographs - that other than dawn or dusk, the sun itself is rarely in my photos. Inspired by Turner's regular inclusion of the sun, this moment seemed an intriguing opportunity to include it's reflection.

The hope to include the two ducks by the reeds, to link their shapes and the distant bouys was fortuitous, as I was due to be elsewhere and the fog got thicker just a minute later, obscuring the sun.😏
