Between a Rock and a Hard Place

By MrsMad  
Well, here are some rocks, and no that is not my shadow it is the rock itself before you ask Smile
I like how the sun caught the frost on these they were sparkled. I even like how the frost is visible in the foreground and the hill is in soft focus.

It was good to see you all again and I look forward to seeing the rest of the photos from the meet.

Thanks the Davie and Wilma for putting up with us all and for tidying up the kitchen.

Thanks for looking and for any comments.

Nice frost, Robbie.
I might have been inclined to crop closer to the natural band of light two thirds up, to bring greater focus to the frosted rocks, but a pleasing image nonetheless.

Aha! So this is wot you took...

I think the soft focus does direct you back to the rocks, but it also allows some context for them by having the b/g there. It was lovely there wasn't it Smile

Nice to see you both Smile
Cheers, Goggz

This looks as good as I thought it would. I like the inclusion of the out of focus hills, gives depth. What makes it for me though is the frost and the quality of light on the rocks.

Early morning winter frost cannot be beaten, and with the low sun light blasting down on them, magical Smile

Bet it would be chilly in the trossachs sitting on these rocks eating your cheese and pickle sarnie !!!! Smile he he

I took lots of shots of these rocks - may load another version soon for you Pete. Good to see you again too.

Dare say it would be very chilly there eating your lunch Davie.

I also like the hills in the distance I loved it there.

Thanks for all your comments and votes.
