Dead Man's Gully near Godshill in the New Forest. Took this shot a couple of weeks ago at sunset. I am trying to find the best way to show the Forest at its best in the four seasons. I hope this works OK. Looks good large.
Thanks for looking, John.

This is a stunning sky John and worthy of a click on its own, but no disrespect, the foreground leaves me a little cold as there is nothing to hold ones interest, so I keep getting drawn back to that sky which is fab.

The sky is awesome to behold. Having read Matt and Robert, I feel I can half agree with them while adding, "The Forest is like that, though!" Lucky not to have had a trail bike or a tourist bus in the f/g.....

A superb sky and light, the foreground for me provides a balance of shade, before the soft light an finally the sky.
