Island of Dreams

This was just as the sun was coming over the hill this morning and the water was golden! A little island here was sheltering ducks who were happy to stay there as it was 4 degreesC. My hands got numb walking around this pond in the local Gardens.
Suggestions that this should be called "On Golden Pond" and thats very apt but I was thinking of this: http://youtu.be/rhF-Mqn-HEQ
Lovely!

@frida You would have to be quite bold to do that gold! Sorry about the poetry!

Well it could be both, but for sure it is beautiful!
