Evening All - - Happy Tuesday.

Only 3 more days to my enforced retirement! (Determined to keep smiling tho' - - at least I'll have some time to catch up with everyone in EPZ land!)

Here's another from the meet at the weekend, showing the split footpath at the top of Higger Tor. I liked big clumping footprints in the sprinkling of snow and the light catching rocks, heather and posts, but didn't like the sky - - so I cropped it out! Wink

I'm sure you will let me have your opinion! Wink

Thanks for looking - - off out to play bridge tonight - - catch up later

Can feel the chill! The foreground is enough to allow for the cropped sky. IMHO Smile

Love the lead in from the posts Fran, did much the same with the sky on most of mine but we did get some cloud later on. Nice to meet you on Sunday

I thought the grainy little snow granules scattered around when we arrived gave a nice touch to proceedings! even if that meant it was b****y cold!! well captured here... and can I see the clouds disappearing over the horizon?

Amazing how many people got good images from the morning - I should have tried harder I guess. Nice lines in this Fran.....
Hope work comes your way soon.

Cheers, Ian.

I like those disappearing posts... and the curve of the path, brought into relief by the sprinkling of snow and the side-light... Must get up to Higger... Carol

A fine low angle composition, Fran, with so much detail to enjoy in the frosted foreground. I'm so sorry to hear about your enforced retirement. Many people here talk of fate and how good things often come out of bad, and I'm sure they're right.
