A study in blue and gold

Taken during my Botswana adventure, this shot of reeds poking up through the shallow waters of the Okavango Delta became a study in colour contrast,  or a study in blue and gold.  The high shutter speed was chosen to overcome possible camera shake,  the shot being taken from a helicopter.    Perhaps not the most obvious subject for aerial photography!
