Taken on Staurday same place as my previous photo. I lay down on the iced grass and took the shot looking up the viaduct.

I like to way the water has frozen when the down spout must have overflown.

To me this could be an ice tree rather than the drainpipe that it is, well that is what I see Smile

I also like the way I have got the foreground blurred but becomes more in focus towards the top of the wall.

Not too much done to this other than rotating it a little to make it straighter and cropped it a bit.

Thanks for looking any comments/critique welocme.

Lovely title and interesting image. I feel that the OOF foreground extends a little bit too far into the image, distracting from the tree effect. I like the image as such.

Thanks for your comment folks.

I had got rather cold so probably did not spend as much time as I should have done with the various exposures etc.

A great and interesting shot and well spotted.
I agree with Ken though. If you crop it just below the first 'ring', it gets a lot better.

I'm glad you left the gap at the top, it gives perspective and I also like the little plant sticking over the top. Worth trying a crop as the others have said.
