This was a winters day with the ground frozen solid. The sun was blinding and I decided to try and see if this photo would work the way I wanted it too. Hope you enjoy.

As someone said, this one is best viewed large...

A very understated shot is this, and really needs to be viewed large. You've managed to catch the nicely silhouetted trees and bright sun whilst retaining a lot of detail in the foreground. Nice one .... Dave.

Thanks for your compliments, I liked the way it worked. It was a funny day actualy and I learned a hard lesson that day. Check your battery is charged before you walk miles and then find out you got about 5 shots left in it Smile
