Thanks John - But some hard earned advice.....don't bother with the hat. What you need is a Full Midge Jacket like I have and possibly surgical rubber gloves for extreme bogs or long term exposure, I...

Hi,
Thanks... no, for a period each year the sunrise from the right comes across the moor and the topography allows the light to hit the rocks before lighting the whole scene. You just got to work...

To biglad: workshop

To auldal: frost

Thanks Alastair, no, the grass is actually that pale greeny-yellow colour before new growth comes through. I actually had to desaturate the image a bit because the gold was so intense, almost like...

Re: To dougie: Thanks for your visit!

Re: To dougie: Thanks for your visit!

ah, yes, I think sometimes if you have fine features, that are not many pixels wide, such as in your picture, that are slightly off vertical in relation to the pixel grid, this will create an...

To coco: lens

Hi Carlos, thanks. Yes it is a good lens, great on the street but for landscapes it tends to fringe a bit on backlit horizons. Fine for this sort of shot tho'...
