The sedge has withered from the lake

The sedge has withered from the lake
And no bird sings.

Suitably bleak on black
Desolate and foreboding but great! Fav!

Suitably sad and poignant... your image and Keats' words were made for each other.

Fantastic, Margo! I'm not normally keen on images with the sun in a scene but I will make an exception for this and concede that there can be no hard and fast rules! This has a beauty all of its own: an Incredibly sad and poignant mood, almost minimalist yet I want to look all over it and drink it in. Beautifully photographed. Well done for seeing the potential in the scene. A thousand faves!

Super shot, Margo. I love the sun shining through the fog. The light from the sun warms the scene, so not bleak at all for me.
