Peter Tavy Snowfall by Alex37 Peter Tavy Snowfall by Alex37
First off, I know this isnt anything particularly clever, nearly anyone who was stood where I was would have taken this shot, but its an image I have wanted ever since I started photogrpahy and its nice to have it in the bag. I will almost certainly turn this into a christmas card for this year.

Sorry if you have a small monitor, but I felt this needed to be a bit bigger than usual to be appreciated. I have watermarked it as a consequence.

My house is to the bottom left of the picture

Wow, that looks old school, like highlander style. Are those stone fences?

Stone forms the core of the hedgerows, but they are also full of earth and dead tree branches. Every couple of years the shoots are broken and forced hozontally along the walls.
Dry Stone walls only really exist on the moor, where vegetation cant survive, like here: [link]
The walls in this picture will be up to about 4ft thick and do not require quite as much skill to create.

Beautiful scene Alex. Kind of reminds me of a scene from the children's classic "The Snowman"

Well I would look around the frame before you do, I think you could make a cleaner crop at the top of the image but i am funny about edges...i assume it's one frame rather than a stitch? The DOF and sharpness are amazing.

I cant see a crop that doesnt solve one problem only to gcreate another. THis is an uncropped single frame. I am generally funny about edges too, but sometimes not

Crikey, I'd forgotten places like this existed. It certainly doesn't look anything like the England that I remember.

Lovely shot

yeah it is a great veiw. This is more of a personal image really, I didnt take it because I thought it had an artistic merit really, but rather because I thought it was beautiful.

It is a beautiful landscape so it's not hard to see why you wanted to add it to your collection. :) I suppose that if an image gives you pleasure then the overall quality isn't always that important. If it makes you happy then it's served its purpose and there's nothing wrong with that. :)

I wouldn't complain mate, I think most of the critique you give me + others could be considered rude and ignorant some of the time lol

Nice shot tho :) Needs a few more patterns in the distace to be effective with the telephoto but that sort of thing is always hit and miss. Its hard trying to pick out shit like that from a distance.

Dashes off to google maps to place MOD bombing run target over house to the bottom left. ;)
