Fab. Just fab.
David Johnson: Why thankyou
Crikey David, that's wonderful! Love the geometry of the OOF trees background being so important yet scrunched into that wee space- lovely stuff!
David Johnson: Composition is a funny old thing!! I feel a project coming on again....

That does look quite chilly. I like your take on the frosted leaves. The composition is quirky and very appealing, as usual.
David Johnson: Hey nice comment,yep I try and look at the usual unusually
Beautiful, cold, and misty. I like the perspective.
David Johnson: Ta, think I need to give the 12-24 a rest as I think Ive overdone it.
Best shot of the day. Beautifully done.
The detail. Colour. Composition with the slope of the hill. The mist.
Amazing.
David Johnson: I love Mother Nature, always there when you need a killer shot...

a bit of frost, mist on the river,good sky.what more could you want.love it.
David Johnson: ..a computer that works and tickets to all the pantos in Greater Manchester........
lol! Thank you, David. (:o) You illustrate my point from yesterday so perfectly with this one. You have the foresight to plan an expedition at the crack of dawn, find the perfect spot, capture the frosty leaves to perfection AND set them in a perfectly composed shot, taking advantage of the beautiful landscape. I wake up to the novelty of the first frosts, get ridiculously excited and run out into the garden in my nightclothes crying `must shoot, must shoot!` LOL! (:o)
David Johnson: Blimey too much information there Ros, seems some SCers have latched on to you running around in your nightie, oi who said any of my stuff had any element of planning attached to it...I need a list of names ....now!
A shot worth getting up for and being cold. Love it David
David Johnson: Ta Bill, getting up early seems to get easier the older you get Ive found

Terrific frosty shot David.
I see your looking a bit haggard at the end of your blackpool tour. Hehe.
David Johnson: It was very stressful.....

David Johnson: Skin is now quite thin and layer of blubber accumulated over the years couldn't cope with it, glad you like the shot

Cracking shot. Coooolsmile
David Johnson: Ta tracy thanks for the extra vowels.
Beautiful David - love the angle of this shot and it looks so crisp.

Spot on David, going into my likeys smile
David Johnson: Ho hoooo in someones likeys!!!!
Reminds me of the sugar dusting on Turkish delight or some such confectionery. It is the bright colours peeping through. Great composition, I am sure you took more of the river in this wonderful light.

Trust you weren't in your nightie ;o)
David Johnson: Thong and flip-flops mate! Other River views over ont Flickr. Computer has gone all silly buggery on me and even though Ive shouted at it a lot will still not work! So sparse uploading but comms like this from childrens laptops
words fail me David, apart from envy,lol, your photography just makes me want to be as good as you one day.....tim
David Johnson: Easy boy....shall I put you down for a MaxBlack branded t shirt, limited edition, not available in the shops????

Its a lovely shot but i'd have shot this closer to f/13 to help keep more detail in the leaves and trees
David Johnson: Hey thats why we shoot things differently!! Mist needed a helping hand at the back so chose to knock back the aperture.
Glad you had to grovel for this Mr Black ... but it was worth it. richard.
David Johnson: I'm good a faux grovelling.

Wow! Amazing!

I hope you didn't get cold knees.
David Johnson: Ha if only I could get that low, problem is then getting back up again...held this from the old mans crouch position.
Superb shot, O Maximus! Lovely soft, misty tones. Hope your sleeping bag didn't get too damp...
David Johnson: You know I only use the Mancheter Evening News to wrap up in, oh and the Guardian for the sudoku at the weekends, pelvic floor exercises help as well!
Lovely composition
David Johnson: Thank you Linda!
Hi Bill, I feel cold just looking at this one - love the colours and the mist - your posting some fine stuff - right up my street! Mike
David Johnson: Mike, Bill's not in at the moment, but I can take a message...
