Pantygasseg, Pontypool.

Happy new year to you all.
I've not taken a landscape shot before and been overally pleased, but i am with this one. Considering i was freezing, also led down on snow trying to balance the camera on my knee as i dont own a tripod and this image is straight from the camera.
Although im still only starting off, Im trying to learn reguarly from my husband, not through him teaching me because he cant be bothered he says! But from watching, it's just as beneficial !!
Comments and critique most appreciated as always.

I think the first lesson is to get a tripod, but you have done well here even without one Smile

Great light catching the grass in the foreground. I also like how it's reflecting off the snow in oher parts of the frame. When he's not looking, get those filters off him!!

I love the sunset colours reflected on the snow, and you've captured a dramatic looking sky to boot!
