The Pond is Frozen

The Pond is Frozen
A scene spotted out of the corner of my eye whilst walking out to a fishing pontoon in the frozen pond, and yet the resultant photo is one of my favourites from the day. Thick ice of the frozen pond; thick hoar frost on frozen blades of grass; a contrast of warm light reflecting off an orange cloud on the left side of the frame and cool blue light on the right side, illuminated by reflection from the blue sky.

Lower camera to knee-height, propped up on a fence beam, set up focus-stacking and ... click... :)

Processed - rarely for me - in Affinity and Pixelmator Photo.
