I took this photograph from the deck of a cruise boat on lake Windemere. It was a freezing cold day but I went without gloves to be able to take some photographs, and it paid off because I got this shot.
I spied the boat some distance away and waited for just the right moment to get the right angle for a side on image.
It works because of the horizontal lines, I think - the boat and it's wake, the shoreline, the treeline and the hills. I used a telephoto zoom to compress the elements together and didn't process it much as I wanted to retain that slightly dreamy feel to it.
What do you think?
