1000 thanks all those who looked and commented and voted yesterday. Haven't been around so much hope to catch up soon!
_____
this is a colour photo, untreated but for a tiny bit of contrast and the frame. Mono will be version two and in 3 I'll piut a crop with the colour bit Smile
taken on the way to work today...

Some of you asked me here what I meant by 'before the machines have been' This here is another spot, quite close to the other upload, AFTER the machines have been.
And Tomcat is right, it is mostly flat here apart from the valley I go through..

This is a gorgeous scene. I think V1 is my favorite -- brings back childhood memories of when we would wonder the woods during a snowfall.
V3 is 2nd fav. -- I like the comp. in that one.

Like those tiny touches of colour in V1 and the composition is beautiful too. We have snow too at the moment though it didn't actually fall today. Lots of dire warnings re Friday when it looks as though it could get nasty!

On a quick glance this could so easily pass as a mono image, Annette, the conditions almost wiping out any colour: very atmospheric with the snow falling.
The natural toning of V 1 makes it my favourite of the first two and I do like the crop in V 3 with that lone tall tree making quite a statement.

So cool that the colour shot looks totally mono! Wonderful. And wonderful shot too, Annette. I prefer the colour one to the BW one. It has a softer and gentler feel to it. V3 is a brilliant crop, by the way! Well seen Smile
