The warm light enriches the shot and brings out some lovely tones. Good reflections of the pelican and trees on the surface of the water. The upturned boats provide interest and context in the background. Very well done.

Hello Trevor, lovely image here. I love the smooth tones on the right side of the composition. We must try to protect these birds or else we'll just look at photographs like yours here to see them ..Good take.

A very beautiful light on the trees and the boats, nicely reflected in the water.
Good DOF and composition.
The pelican makes an attractive foreground.
Best regards, Paul

great smooth lake view with the pelican sail calmly upon.
marvelous golden light over the water and boats upsidedown on bank's.
*** The barrels are part of the scene, that's why not cropped.
