Cheers!!!


Comment by Ellen on 10th January 2013 at 01:00
Up early, Andrew? A lovely tranquil scene with wonderful colours. (Note the spelling; my North American born laptop insists that it's wrong,but I persist in retaining my English accent, even in spelling!)


Comment by Janice on 10th January 2013 at 01:12
Fantastic shot Andrew. I love the way the canal and the path converge into the mist. Wish I had taken this. Have not seen the sky like this in Astley. Bet Lizziedownunder wants this for her album ;)


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th January 2013 at 01:27
"Red in the morning, sailor`s warning. Red at night, sailor`s delight". So the sailor`s are warned !!
Very good perspective and reflections. The reflected red seems deeper than the red in the sky.
Is this photo `natural`, Andrew?


Comment by Mick on 10th January 2013 at 08:09
Theres not much solid ground keeping Pearsons flash the canal and Scotman flash apart at that point.


Comment by billo on 10th January 2013 at 08:10

Comment by Jimmy on 10th January 2013 at 12:28
Because its winter,bipper...duh...


Comment by Teresa Green on 10th January 2013 at 12:34
Bipper,

There are two main types of trees, evergreens which maintain their foliage throughout all of the year and deciduous trees which shed their leaves every winter. During autumn the leaves of deciduous trees will start to change color and gradually fall off onto the ground below.

This process of this leaf loss is done to conserve the trees energy and prevent damage over the upcoming winter. Because of the large surface area of the trees leaves the cold and dry winds over the winter months would strip all the moisture from the tree. Therefore by losing its leaves the tree can conserve all its moisture in the trunk and branches. The lack of leaves also means that the tree needs less energy to stay alive and healthy.

As the days get shorter and the nights start to get longer, trees will make arrangements to lose their leaves by releasing a chemical which ultimately causes the leaf to die and fall off its branch. When the leaves fall onto the ground below it causes a layer of protective mulch that not only insulates its roots but also gives it nutrients to feed off.

Teresa

This is one of the nicest photos I've ever seen. As I'm very interested in photography, what camera settings , lens etc did you use? Well done Andrew.


Comment by arrow on 10th January 2013 at 14:00
That's a nice shot, Andrew. I like the colours and reflections. The mist adds to it nicely.


Comment by Janet on 10th January 2013 at 14:32
WOW..It is just beautiful, I love it.

I was waiting for someone to mention 'photoshop'. they did, no surprises there..

Ellen, I have the same computer, I write my way, no matter what the computer says..lol


Comment by mac on 10th January 2013 at 14:59
Glorious is the only word for this.


Comment by B,Brad. on 10th January 2013 at 18:11
Andrew, 10 out 10. This is one of the best.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 10th January 2013 at 19:44
Lizzie, always a pleasure to give you a taste of Blighty!

Ernest - yep a 'natural' shot. I think the blacks of the water are coming through the reflection a bit giving a deeper and more intense tone.

Mick & Baz - Platt Bridge, not Abram or Ince Moss!

Harry - what makes you think it's been 'Photoshopped'? It's pretty much what I saw (although not quite as intense on the photo). It's very much a winter scene. I sharpened it a little and lifted the darkness on the grass but the colours are straight out of the tin. Have you had your monitor calibrated for colour (serious question, by the way) it can affect the way colours are displayed.

Margaret - here are the details for you - taken on Aperture Priority - I chose the depth of field f16, the camera picked the shutter speed of 1.5secs. It was a 17-40mm lens.

Lovely shot mate :)


Comment by Dave Marsh on 10th January 2013 at 20:42
Hi Andrew,I change my desktop background every couple of months and with your permission I will use your photo for my next one.Superb.


Comment by Bill on 10th January 2013 at 21:09
Absolutely brilliant ,great to look at.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 10th January 2013 at 21:53
Andrew
Absolutely brilliant,just what we needed to brighten the winter photo`s up.Great stuff Andrew,


Bipper......no leaves on trees? Think perhaps its winter time.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 10th January 2013 at 22:10
Dave Marsh

Please feel free to take a copy for your background - always makes me happy if my shots bring a bit of pleasure!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th January 2013 at 22:31
Thankyou Andrew..... I have a son Andrew and he is a very giving soul, just like you..:-)


Comment by Ben Cusick on 11th January 2013 at 02:03
Dirty Harry - tbh I don't think this looks like it has been put through photoshop. Many of my photos come out very vivid. Seem cameras take very vivid pictures as does my Nikon. If you have nev seen the sky like this before you need to get yourself out of bed earlier!


Comment by jimmy, tree`s are green on 11th January 2013 at 05:54
it`s easy to write comments under someone else`s name.
