This shot was taken yesterday afternoon into the setting sun, creating interesting shadows.

I was pleased at the response to "Winter Beeches" as I did not expect it to receive much attention. Thanks to all who voted and offered a comment.

Ronnie.

Is that it Ronnie ? Is that the only piddling amount of snow you have had through there ? You would need chest waders if you came through to my neck off the woods !!
Good shot,but what is that bright light in the sky ? Never seen that through here for weeks !!

I do love shots taken against the light, it changes how we see things with the light behind them. Nicely done with the sun behind the trunk to reduce the flair Ronnie.

A beautiful capture, Ronnie, lovely lighting. That snow looks as thick as it is here now, it's been snowing a blizzard on & off all day Sad
Hope you're soon sorted with your internet. It's good we can access the full EPZ on our iPhones, even if it is a bit sluggish without 3G or WiFi...
