Finally got out today and managed to get some new photos.
This was taken ay Pentwyn Resevoir nr the Brecon Beacons and i was really pleased as this was just as it came out of the camera with just a little sharpening.Think this may be the last we'll see of such a fresh crisp sunny day for a while tho:o)
Many thanks for all your views and comments,which are much appreciated,and apologies for the loong silences,...boy have i got some catching up to do:o)

nice shot spoilt by the use of the polarizer making the sky look uneven. i used to use polarizers but gave up, especially with wide lenses. sharp and colourful though.
