    Love the contrast snow to sky, did you use a graduated filter???? I also like the interest created by the fence neatly framing the treeline…….Top shot me auld mukka.

  • Thanks Nic, I used the Graduated filter in the processing(Picassa), had to crop slightly to emphasize that Fence Post…

    Clever Composition Russ! I can see you kneeling there, pondering over the decision how to best frame this shot, lol. Well done!

  • Cheers Manny, would have been happier if those weedy things hadn’t been intertwind with the wire fence…would have liked a cleaner look around the fence post…thanks for taking a look matey.

    The snow-cover isn’t quite as generous where I am as in your picture (and that sky…!!), but where I live there are undisturbed patches, and there was quite a bit resting on various plant foliage, which was pretty. The higlight was definitely a couple of centimetres settling (however briefly) in central London today!

  • Hope you managed to get a few images of it…My folks live up north in Chesterfield and they’ve been stuck indoors for a few days, they said it’s the worst they’ve seen in years.

    …i took a picture just like this over the weekend…except, mine sucked and yours is gorgeous!

  • Thanks for checking it out and your comments Tania. Are you going to post yours so that we can take a look? I’m sure it’s good if your gallery is anything to go by.
