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!

Excellent photo "In The Bleak Mid Winter" would be a good title for it.

Thanks for that,Dave Thomas. I spent many Saturday afternoons there as a teenager. Strange how in retrospect, they were always sunny Saturdays!

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!
