CommentI selected this image because of the uniqueness of the reflections. It was early morning and the cormorant had just caught a Leatherjacket and was in the process of swallowing it as I followed it with my camera through the reflections from a red box on the wharf and the lights of other moored boats creating an arty, moody, almost surreal and euphoric effect. The light on the wake as the bird glides effortlessly through the water captures the sense of motion.
