The flood plain of the River Spey between Aviemore and Grantown. It was a misty morning, about 15mins after the sun crested the hills and happily coincided with my commute home from a night shift for the local Out of Hours service. Smile

You were there at just the right time, Alan, the sun coming up but the mist lingering and adding to the aerial perspective.
Nice the way the sun is highlighting one side of the middle distance trees.
Ronnie.

Lovely misty atmosphere, Al, the tree and fence form the substance with some lovely suble light on the trees behind. Not quite sure about the proportions of the image and would maybe chop some of the sky.

Love the softness here. I think I tend to agree with Dave and if it was mine (....) I would chop about half the sky. Great composition otherwise.

Thanks Herman, Ronnie, Dave and Ann.
I wasn't sure about the sky but thought if I cropped more out (preserving the 3x2 proportions) then the tree might be a bit tight at the edges so it's useful to get those opinions. Smile
