Afternoon,

What a beautiful day out there (well it is here in the northwest, hope you have had the same). This isn't my typical shot i.e, no water. Saw the sun filtering through the leaves of this mammoth tree as I drove past, had to stop and grab the shot. Never can quite replicate the real thing but this is as close as I can get. It's on the way to Tarn Hows in the lakes.
Many thanks for looking.
Mand.

Great colours and no major flare despite despite shooting into the sun so well done! Smile You didn't go for the obvious shot straight over the gate so even more kudos! I like the split between the two sides of the wall here, both of which have their own interest and kept me looking for longer.

Do more Mand - it works well! Minor criticism is the touch of flare on the centre gate.
