Bit of an impromptue shot this, on my way to one location the sky got so good and the mist was rising so I had to divert to a nearby location and try to make something of it. Just as well because the light didn't show at my final destination that morning. Smile

Quite bright, Al but I think that's deliberate on your part to keep that misty airiness. The vignette helps to balance the light as well. From a compositional view point I would like to have seen a post closer to the side of the frame. Despite that, this has a lovely feel to it and the sky looks beautiful.

Excellent comp and I like the white fluffy thistle thing in the fg ( strangely it makes the shot for me ,) the sky is amazing and the line of mist is a lovely bonus ........really easy on the eyes with the beautiful soft and natural colours and its great flow makes you want to walk on in Smile

A chill in the air and a lovely hint of mist rolls across the filed.
