Taken today at the EPZ meet at Padley Gorge. I rather liked the way the tree seemed to act like a fence. Behind the leaves and branches are the swollen waters of the gorge, I don't think I have seen Padley with so much water!

Beautifully seen Martin and expertly taken. Fabulous DoF picks out the branch and leaves perfectly, and a sublime amount of movement on selective leaves.

All the very best mate!!

Many thanks all for looking in, appreciated.

That's very different and like the way the brown of the leves complement the brown of the water.

Couldn't get to the Padley meet this morning, but didn;t realise there was an earlier one, as went out by myself. Thought about going to Curbar too!!.

All the best for 2007 Martin.

Superb, Martin. It's the use of observation, composition and DOF that really impresses. This is the kind of shot I want to take this year - this puts a twist on the bog standard EPZ landscapes that litter this site. This is inspiring stuff.

All the best for 2007, Martin.
