Cold Feet

By Morgs  
An early start for me today. I drove to a location about half an hour from home called Bigsweir Bridge. It's located in the Wye Valley. On arrival, the moon was illuminating the bridge and this tree. I may well upload that image in due course.

This shot was taken about 15 minutes before sunrise. The mist was really beginning to build, and the bridge can just be seen behind the tree, but in reality, I believe that this tree is the real star of the show!!

It was -3 when I got there, and whilst I was wrapped up warm, my feet were freezing, despite the two thick pairs of socks!!!!

Hope you enjoy it.

Regards,

Dave

Another HC, you are on a role.
This one is simply stunning, I remember you mentioning that you hadn't had much success with that tree in the past, well you can tick that one off.
