another cracker Paul, good colour and tones, well composed, a nicely presented image.

I prefer the closer views of the tree Paul as it adds a bit of relief to the image.

Lovely shot Paul, with great composition and a watercolour sky. I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you clone out the two black lumps - one to the left, and one to the right of the tree. They are a distraction at the moment and removing them will improve the image dramatically. It looks very cold up there, but it was certainly worth the hike to get this superb shot. Best wishes Gary

Blimey, cheers all for your time Smile

This, or the portrait version are probably my personal faves from the morning, the detail in them just leap out in print but doesn't fare quite so well here. Glad to see it's attracted your attention though Smile

No problem in suggesting that at all Gary, fair point too, but as those bushes were there I left them in ... might have a look later though.

I love the way the light frosted landscape is complemented by the light tones of the sky, Paul. And that composition is faultless.

Only ever shot this the once myself Ian, but I hope to go back under better, more dramatic conditions myself.

Wasn't too bad Gary, though not exactly toasty Wink

Glad you both think so Ian and Mr Ler Smile

Very well composed Paul & the exposure is spot on for all the great textures on the rocks...which take me right into the image from front to back.
Nice one !

I'd spotted it last time TBH Melanie, but ended up concentrating on one area, so made a note to visit it next time I returned to the area.

Thanks all for your valued time, votes and comments ... means a lot Smile

Me neither. Thankfully I'm on a course until Thursday, but it's a struggle! lol

Cracking shot mate. The texture/lines look really good. The viewpoint works particularly well.

Cheers, Sean
