Just been looking through your portfolio Tim, some outstanding pictures in there ...and not always getting the clicks and comments they deserve.
This is beautiful, well done.

Anne, thank you for looking through my collection on this site, everyone deserves more comments, but the quality is far more important than the quantity and yours rates very highly to me. Thank you...

Malcolm, get that entry back out now!

Niamh, perfection is something that would seem more appropriate to your images than mine! Mine are a little rougher around the edges... thank you though

Alan I prefer that name, "love in the mist" ... seems far more appropriate...

Thanks to the other Alan and Merlin (use your magic!)

Regards,

Tim

I have always known it as "Love in the mist" also...(Although I prefer to nickname it "A Shag in the fog !"

Great shot by the way

Hi Andrew,

A photo like this would only be reduced in quality if it was manipulated. Sometimes with such a delicate subject and when lucky enough to have the perfect lighting conditions, it is best to do nothing! It has to be said though that the full size version of this image is far far better!

There was a lot of good fortune here and it was a question of taking advantage...

Cheers,

Tim
