Have you noticed the mornings are getting colder, and the sun rises a little later, which suits those of us that are not so good at getting up early. Here's a nice crisp early morning shot of Glastonbury Tor in Somerset. Hope you like it...

A most unusual take on a familiar location. That little group of cows is perfectly placed and the reedy texture makes an interesting foreground.

Yes I like these morning too Dave, and you have done one of them a great service with this very effective image. The reflections are key to the success of your image.

Having had no sun on it Eric, the bank of the rhyne was quite slippery so I was a bit nervous, clinging on for all I was worth to the tripod legs, which were b....y cold too! Thanks to Phil & Victor & Mike for their kind words of support. Many thanks everyone...

Very contrasting light areas in this Dave - turned out well. Like the touch of light on the cows back.
