A canoe disappearing into the distance on the River Lerryn

Disappearing canoe

A long shot of a canoe heading down the River Lerryn
12/09/2009
This is another long shot, this time on the River Lerryn which is a tidal branch of the Fowey estuary. In the summer this stretch of river attracts people in small boats.

I liked the slightly mysterious impression of two people in a sunlit canoe in the distance, heading into a dark, shadowy section of the river. And I thought the house on the left adds an extra point of reference. In Lightroom I have applied a graduated filter to slightly darken the water in the foreground.
