Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments on yesterday's upload INTO THE DISTANCE, most appreciated.

Well, I did intend adding the follow up image to this. But we were looking out of the window at around 3.00pm this afternoon and the sky started to develop some clouds, so jumped in the car and travelled up to the Rhigos Mountains. We left a snow free area, and within 35 mins this is what we saw........ The most fabulous sunset and the whole place was just magical, the ice and icicles were glistening everywhere with the beautiful light - got loads of shots to share with you, this is just one I picked out quickly, hardly any processing done to this, almost as it was straight out of the camera. An amazing start to 2010 ! Just had to put one of these shots up today, being it was taken on the first day of a new year !

Within an hour of being back home, the snow started again, a good couple of inches have fallen.

Hope you like it ! (View large if you have the time and F11 for full screen).

For me Chris this is one of your best, great sky, but the interest in the composition is wonderful, glistening ice on the rocks, the road beckoning you around the bend, top draw image, looking forward to the others you have taken.
Happy New Year.
