Photographer's Note

While walking round this lake on the last day of 2007, looking for suitable photo opportunities, I was passed by this lady in a red coat.

As she walked through the line of trees, I took this shot.

“Coate Water Country Park has a 56-acre reservoir built in the 1820s as a headwater tank for the Wiltshire and Berkshire Canal.

In the 1970s a smaller lake was created as a flood storage lagoon, which was made Wiltshire’s first Local Nature Reserve (LNR) in 1976. Most of the site and all the water have been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), in order to protect the wildlife and wildflower meadows.”

Taken under very dull lighting conditions.

Shot in RAW - 1/27 sec f8 ISO 400
