Leeds Castle, as I am sure you know Wink
Every December Sky - another Beth Nielsen Chapman song that I find quite beautiful!

Every December sky
Must lose its faith in leaves
And dream of the spring inside the trees.
How heavy the empty heart,
How light the heart that's full.
Sometimes I have to trust what I can't know
Sometimes I have to trust what I can't know

And every leaf of fire lets go,
Melting in the arms of earth and snow.
And if I could hold you now,
You'd enter like a sigh.
You'd be the wind that blows
The answer to "why?"
You'd be the spring-filled trees
Of every December sky

As always, thank you for your time.
Regards - Sarah J x

The hint of the reflection in the frozen water, the stones on the ice and the detail in the castle stones all add up to a fabulous image.

A gorgeous capture, Sarah, of this truly delightful scene. Nice reflections, and the patches in the ice add foreground interest - and emphasize how cold it looks!

Your singing sounds a bit better than mine Smile

a mono might look effective here and perhaps a sweeping brush on the foreground Smile You must have a million different angles on here by now and each one has it's own interest, possibly a better reflection with the ice too...?

Thanks gentlemen, appreciated!
Caleb - a mono - hmm I just might try that! I'm always trying to find different angles on this place - I'll see if I can find a better reflection too Smile

An excellent view of your favourite location, I agree with Caleb I reckon a mono would look good and give this image a really cold feel
