Looks out of focus to me, but a very nice glen to walk through.

It does a bit Mick, but i think it adds to the photo somehow.

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.

Looks doctored or taken by cheap throwaway camera.

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"

I think the blurriness is intentional to make it seem magical like a fairy glade. Mick knows how to take a good photo

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

You should have kept your mouth shut, Mick - I thought it was a brilliant bit of photography to get that mystic effect!
