looks lovely,remember tramping through the snow on my way to beechhill school in my short pants and thread bare cloths and saying to myself I going to Australia one day.Great shot for a christmas card.


Comment by NORMAN SKELLON, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA on 2nd February 2013 at 01:37
A very nice photo. I like the gradual transition of colour from the foreground to the sky, and the similar gradual transition of tree sharpness from the foreground to the hazy distance. Well done!


Comment by Ellen on 2nd February 2013 at 02:42
Great picture, David! We've had so many of these lately,(no complaint intended!),it's hard to find enough superlatives with which to comment!
....by the way,is there still a cricket club at Dalton?


Comment by Alby South Australia on 2nd February 2013 at 03:55
Good shot Dave. I can feel the cold from here


Comment by Catherine on 2nd February 2013 at 04:39

Comment by Al.C. on 2nd February 2013 at 08:17
Excellent photo "In The Bleak Mid Winter" would be a good title for it.


Comment by Harry C. on 2nd February 2013 at 08:35
That's a good winter pic I almost feel the cold.


Comment by Ron D on 2nd February 2013 at 08:49

What day was this, Dave?
A lot of new mames in comments above.
Do you play golf?
Was your P-a-D on 30th Jan.`13 taken with a zoom lens?


Comment by Ellen on 3rd February 2013 at 02:31
Thanks for that,Dave Thomas. I spent many Saturday afternoons there as a teenager. Strange how in retrospect, they were always sunny Saturdays!


Comment by Gabbyd on 3rd February 2013 at 08:22

What a beautiful photograph


Comment by Niec from downunder on 8th February 2013 at 21:04
While I sit here rain pouring down and just over recents major floods, I think to myself now here's a photo I could look at every day, while we swelter in our humidity. Just lovely and cooling and such a contrast with a bit of mood thrown in!


Comment by C Rad on 17th October 2013 at 00:26
Absolutely amazing!!! The different shades and colours. Superb!!
