"Out of the Mist"

By RonnieAG
Image taken yesterday.

This is my first Internet connection in 4 days: but unfortunately the Site is proving to be extremely slow, so I may not be able to follow everyone's images just now and will try again later.
But this posting lets you know I am still on the go and kicking.

Details: ISO 200, 1/250 sec. at f/8.0 with Exp. Bias of -0.67.

Many thanks to all who took interest in "Blue Icicle"....I am most appreciative.

A beautiful winter scene Ronnie, excellent light and atmosphere in this one.
Love the misty hollow and the beautiful birch, this is very good indeed Ronnie.
Don't despair I was knackered myself this very morning, spent ages chopping and changing browsers, trying to get a connection that was stable. Doubt it was the temperature and we'll have to blame the Scottish Government like they get blamed for everything else.


Right Alex what do you have to say about this then?

Superb! Love the look - in a photo. Would rather not face having to be out in it, but not much choice these days!

Re oil, the answer's No! Still awaiting delivery but at least the post got here after a break of almost a fortnight!

Oh dear, Ronnie, I thought my 1 day without internet was bad enough! A wonderful winter capture, and as cold as it looks, it does look prettier than around here - it's all mucky and packed down into ice.

Hi Ronnie, don't think its just your neck of the woods, the site seems to be going backwards in speed here down south as well.
I see you are still knocking out the cracking shots mate, about time you turned pro or semi pro and flog some of those images.
Spot on mate.

p.s. Hope you are keeping well and warm up there my friend, here, going stir crazy with the four walls ~ I am out next week come hell or high water to try and get some shots from the Rochester Festival just down the road.

every now and then, on a cold morning, the mist lies in the strathmore valley in angus leaving the hills clear, giving the effect of a lake in the valley. I never have my camera with me when this ocurrs but after seeing this image Ronnie, it has made me determined to capture it, it would make a wonderful image.
