Lovely storybook photo.
Great shot, has this some HDR treatment?
I don't profess to be an expert but that is a brilliant picture. Would make a nice Christmas card.
You're a brave lad Andrew. Brrr - but if you want the shot you have to do it. This was worth getting up and cold for. Absolutely beautiful.
Very picturesque. Worth marching out in the cold for.
wow andrew, this photo is brilliant. Is this HDR?
Andrew this is a magical pic, may I please take a copy for my collection???
What a beautiful picture! How well I remember those cold and frosty mornings.This is such a nostalgic moment.
Smashing photo Andrew
Is it enhanced in anyway
Looks a little hdr in that
Beautiful, absolutely amazing.
Really good photo, Andrew. Worthy of a place in a competition. *****
A really good picture of a classic mid-winter scene. So good it makes me want to print and frame it.
You're definitely on the right path with this one mate!
Very nICEly done! :-)
Well worth rising early for this shot, brilliant. H.
Hi all, and thanks for the nice comments :-)
Lizzie, always happy to share any pic - feel free to add to your collection.
It has had a little HDR treatment to bring out the frost on the grass. I did send the HDR and the 'normal' shot to Brian and asked him to pic his fav! My opinion of HDR is that it should be used when it adds something to the shot - here the path leading the eye into the sunrise is the focus of the image and did work well with the normal shot, but the HDR gave more in the shadows! If I don't get chance before next week I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and smashing New Year!
Thankyou Andrew!! Just saved a copy. A Merry Christmas to you and yours... Cheers!!!
Great pic, Andrew - and Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to you and yours.
I'm sure you've checked the metadata for this pic and it IS a sunrise, not a sunset? ;-))
Best photo in a long time.
♪In the bleak midwin-ter...♪
Brill pic, very atmospheric.:)
Atmospheric is a good word mac.....
We should ask Brian for some smilies on here to brighten up the posts..... :-)

'Ey up' Dave(Oy). You're at it again! Expect a frosty reception!!!! ;)
I feel awful, I was born & brought up in Platt Bridge, but I have no idea where this is, please tell me. Lovely picture.

Excellent composition Andrew top marks ,Merry Christmas.
Nothing left for me to say, every one else said it all... Thank You and Merry Christmas.......
Treatment or not do fir me , a blinder.

I don't care what he has done at it. Its lovely.. reminds me of those Christmas cards that always have some sheep on them. Merry Christmas to all on WW
I'm with Maggie over this lovely picture.I don't know where itis either. Wasn't there a colliery called Low Hall somewhere in Platbridge a long time ago?
What a glorious photo, I can feel the atmosphere on it. Beautiful on the eye, thank you.
Beautiful and Stunning.
Too late,really, but I must say that I have been loving all the "pfunny" comments that have been made in the last couple of days; too bad that I'm having a very long "senior moment" and can't think of any myself!!!
Maggie as an old Platt Bridger you must surely remember Sammys Flood? It is now a Nature Reserve,the entrance is on Liverpool Rd opposite Crompton St. By the way Andrew excellent photograph!
Cracking Photo Andrew you could probably have sold it
HDR. High Dynamic Range Photos it's a technique if there's a wide range of light conditions in the shot ie; bright sunlight and deep shadow put simply you expose for both take several shots of the same subject with different exposure values and digitally combine them for the best picture.That is how i understand it but i'm sure Dave Oy could describe it better.
Forgot to say great photo Andrew,really brings out the cold frosty morning feeling.
did i know a tommy waterhouse,do iknow a tommy waterhouse, walker bros,wigan tech. how old are you tommy
this is a belting photo,all the better for being in color
Seeing Andrew was such a nice fellow and let me take a copy of this magical picture, I have it on my iPad as my festive wallpaper.... Cheers!!!
Love Love Love it..I've commented before on other pictures that sunsets/sunrises are my favourite scenes and the frost just adds to the atmosphere..more please..wow
