SnowGate

By wendy9
A rare day of snow near the South Coast, taken as the temperature was just starting to rise - hence the mistiness in the background and melting snow on the gate.

Wow this is so effective .. just love that haziness in the background and the gate is so beautifully seen .. the colouring is superb and I really get the sense of a quiet, still winter's day. I wasn't sure about the horizontal bars at the top .. maybe it works either way ..

and the snow starting to melt too - what a catch! fab ...

Really glad you like it - it's one of my favourites. I did try cropping the top bars at one stage, but found it did not look so effective...for me anyway!
Just had a very quick look at your 'front page' - and wow - several there that took my fancy, especially the wine glass. Will try to look more thoroughly tomorrow, it's 11:30 so time for bed!

This one completely missed me in the gallery, so glad I found it in your portfolio. An unusual image that grows on the viewer and, as Suzi says, really imparts the sense of quiet that comes with a blanket of snow. Lovely.

I love the 'bleak' feel captured in this image. Absolutely superb!

A picture with great impact and one I would have missed if it hadn't been for your Portfolio . Looks like a good book cover for " Cold Comfort Farm" Smile)

Thank you all for your kind comments and sorry for not replying sooner - too much time taking photos and keeping up with the forum lolSmile
I love your idea Mavis - why didn't I think of that...do you think it's too late now for a reprint?!!!
