A heart of GOLD

Early morning walk nr Wentworth. The swan proved to have a heart of gold because it allowed a coot to feed in the same pool it had broke in the ice. This was one of a pair but I cropped this for the effect of the reflection. I enhanced the colouring a little but that was all I needed to do. I just wish I'd been a little closer on this frosty morning. The sunrise was just amazing with the colouring. Before the gold of the sunrise the sky was just scarlet.
