The trees looked like islands but I cant really claim to have done the scene justice. There are some veiws that cameras just struggle to capture and this would be one of them.

Although a 2D photography can never fully capture the multidimensional feeling a landscape gives, it can certainly invoke those feelings, as you have done here. I can almost taste the serene air right now... thank you for sharing!

I had never seen this shot until toby featured it today; it really is impressive! The pastel colours are beautiful and the grounded mist is something i've never seen on this sort of scale before.

Whether you did or didn't do this landscape justice, its still a great shot.

Thanks Alan. I am hoping to have a repeat of these conditions in the summer, now that I have a telephoto lens.

Thanks...
My photos are manipulated, but I stay very true to the subject. I use minimal digital manipulation. With shots like this the sky would be a little too bright with just one exposure. Film photographers used to overcome this by using a graduated neautral density filter (which basically blocks out some of the light from the top of the image to make it darker) I do the equivalent by combining to slightly different exposures, its a digital way of doing exaclty the same thing.

Thanks foir your comment.

For "not doing the scene justice" you have (in my opinion) come out with one of your best pieces so far. The underlying look of simplicity conveys an emotive feeling of peace and tranquility. From the watercolour skies to the chalk dusted forground, the whole view is perfect.

I do hope that this will be on display at your exhibition because I would like to see it 'in the flesh', so to speak.

Thanks very much. I will try to rush a print off, but any framing now is extra and I have already spent way way over budget!
There is something about being there sometimes which is so hard to express in a photograph, I do like this shot, but it just doesn quite capture it.

That looks like you have created digitally! I would never have guessed you took that picture in real life.
