The sunrise colour was at its most glorious here, briefly adding a warm glow to the church and frost covered grass and reeds.

I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

One for Lpoty 2013! Superb light but what makes it for me is the sweep of the water and reeds to the church and then the line of those clouds taking you out of the shot to the top rh corner. Superb image, Derek.

I'm enjoying this series so much, it captures the strangeness and quiet of the place. One of our favourite holiday cottages is just five minutes walk along the road from here, we have walked across those wet fields so often. In June AnnChown and I spent a merry time shepherding sheep to the front of the church for some other members to photograph. Good memories.

Great image Derek, one of the strongest in the series for it's combination of warm light, frosty FG, great expanse of sky exaggerating the flat ground and imparting more of a feel of isolation to the church. I also really like the way all the land and sky elements vector into the church, highlighting it even more. DPOTY indeed! Smile
Have a great Christmas and look forward to seeing more of your work in 2013!
