Weekend Reflections / Newport Back Bay, California USA

 Click on photo to enlarge!
Newport Back Bay, California USA
This back bay is a wildlife preserve.
The sign basically says, "only birds beyond this point."
I am just starting to use the graduated neutral density filters and have much more to learn about how and when to use them.
They sure bring out the foreground color and darken a contrasting sky.

Very pretty scenic shot. I like the way the water leads the eye towards the horizon.

Beautiful! I agree with Clueless - I like the way the water leads the eye up to the sky.
