At the beginning of the year, I took a trip on my own to Malham. The day started off with an early morning start at this tree on the lings.

A cold wintry storm passed by and the rain caught me ... I managed to get a couple of shots with rain splattered filters, so this has has quite a bit of retouching in PhotoShop to remove the evidence of this. If you find any more ... keep it/them to yourself ... PLEASE!!!! Wink

I quite liked the light that was present at this time, not necessarily the most conjusive to landscapes, but I like it.

Anyway, 'tis nearly the weekend everyone, enjoy it whatever you do Wink

I like your comp here Paul with a more or less 50:50 split between foreground and sky, punctuated by that windswept tree.

Can't see any rain splashes either.

Cheers for your time so far everyone, glad it was worth getting cold and wet for. I think the amount of retouching it needed was what put me off looking at this for so long.
