NOW Mick that is a nice one.


Comment by Mick on 14th July 2015 at 08:40
Looks out of focus to me, but a very nice glen to walk through.


Comment by Jonno on 14th July 2015 at 09:53
It does a bit Mick, but i think it adds to the photo somehow.


Comment by A.W. on 14th July 2015 at 09:58
The soft focus effect is very appealing, well done Mick.

Mick; How time has flown since we had that deluge on 22nd August 1987 which unearthed some old railway lines in Fairy Glen.


Comment by Mick on 14th July 2015 at 11:34
I didnt know about the old railways lines Ernest.

Looks doctored or taken by cheap throwaway camera.


Comment by lectriclegs on 14th July 2015 at 12:26
Well you should know, Mick with the amount of pictures you take.

Ant, it says "Sony DSC-T9" so use your brains and look on Google to see if it's a "cheap throwaway camera"


Comment by chris roberts on 14th July 2015 at 13:00
So beautiful and tranquil love the composition and detail in this photo.Thank you Mick .


Comment by kath on 14th July 2015 at 13:04
I think the blurriness is intentional to make it seem magical like a fairy glade. Mick knows how to take a good photo

Naff.


Comment by Aubrey on 14th July 2015 at 14:55
It's O.K. for me Mick, nice one.


Comment by Beryl on 14th July 2015 at 20:21
Looks like a Kincaid painting


Comment by Julie on 14th July 2015 at 20:55
Speaks Hobbit to me Mick, Thanks,


Comment by Pay on 14th July 2015 at 22:20

Comment by Mick on 14th July 2015 at 22:45
Ive just remembered why its out of focus.
There was a deer on the right of the photo and I took the picture quick before it run off.
You can just see some brown and its back legs


Comment by Rev David Long on 14th July 2015 at 23:05
You should have kept your mouth shut, Mick - I thought it was a brilliant bit of photography to get that mystic effect!
