Hello everyone

Sorry I've not been with you all for the past few days..... been really tired after work and have been going to bed early!

I took this a few years ago, when I had my Olympus e500. It was taken in the winter at the park in Buxton (Derbyshire). This place is well worth a visit..... great for us photographers.

Thanks again for all your votes and comments.
They are always appreciated.

Best Wishes

Bev Smile

You've handled the exposure extremely well as white especially hard to get right but you have got it spot on.

Great capture Bev, nicely presented. Know how you feel - in my case I think it's age rather than work.
