Thanks very much for your comments and telling which version you prefer. I hesitated between V1 and V3 (taken at 1/15th sec with the camera on my shoe while standing on a flat slab in the middle of the water rushing from the lake. Who needs a tripod?)

Todayís offering was also taken yesterday morning on my way to the lake in a lane leading from Avening to Cherington Lake. I like the peaceful atmosphere created by the snow and the slight mist.

f14 1/80th sec zoom at 38mm cropped bottom and a bit of the handside

Hoping you enjoy this little bit of Gloucestershire.

Keep warm and have a nice evening,

V2 for me - by cropping the foreground it gives more importance to the sky.

A beautiful winter scene which is enhanced by the inclusion of the couple out walking their dogs. V2 is my preference too

V2 is the stronger shot....
Well done..

Thank you very much. Up-loaded the wrong photo as V1 so I'm glad V2 is your favourite version. JNC

I can see why you wanted to put V2 up as your main image, the crop you have done has made such a big difference.
