  • Some trees from February

    Here are a couple of shots from what was mostly a dull morning at Buttermere that got out nicely as I passed Crummock water I did process a shot from the morning went back and found these in the set from the morning

    I am trying some square crops too

    There had been a workshop round this tree when I arrived and I was happy shooting away from it but took this anyway as I went for a look around

        These are both superb shots Alf. I think I'd have preferred a none square crop myself though.

          #1 is a real corker, thanks to that burst of sunlight. I love the square crop too.

                #1 for me too.

                Was it taken from near the stone wall or a bit further round? We were there in late February, caught that spell of amazing weather but no snow on the hills and quite hazy unfortunately.

                  #1. The combination of colour, snow, and light is fantatsic.

                      Alf,

                      They are both excellent.

                          Nice. And perfect mixed light makes the first very dramatic.
