[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this on Christmas Day up in the Yorkshire Dales - the sunlit mountain in the distance is Ingleborough, one of the famous Three Peaks - I loved the simplicity of this view with the blanket of untouched snow and the line of trees leading the eye towards Ingleborough.

Slight saturation and contrast boost in photoshop to try to accentuate the colours in the sky and mountain...

I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking,

Hallo Doug
What a amazing scenery. It must have been so wonderful looking at this breathtaking snow filled landscape with the naked eye. Scenes like these I only see in magazines or postcards. It has tranquillity and peace written all over it. The stillness of scenery is unbelievably beautiful and fills one's being with such appreciation for the wonderful nature that surrounds us. Thanks for sharing this tranquill scene. A perfect example of Winter Wonderland of the movies. It is soft on the eye and truly touching. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Doug,

really great to see another post from you mate - looks like you've been out making the most of the snowy conditions! We've hardly seen any around Bournemouth, it's been hard to believe that there's been so much elsewhere.
Anyway, really like your composition here. Cleverly framed to give a feeling of purity with the large sky dominating and the untouched driven snow is great. The trees and fence make a very nice lead in too.and the soft peach coloured glow on the hills in the background help add a little something extra special.
well done mate, cracking shot.
(you have a dust spot on the left hand side ;o)

Hi Doug,

A beauty of a winter landscape you have here. The overall composition is superb with where the trees are placed in the frame and the horizion line is located. Great leading line with the fence. Beautiful soft light and a spot on exposure. Nice work..


Hi Doug,
As you mentioned, the clean lines are a delight here.
I like a lot the composition made with the big proportion of sky, but well balanced with the inclusion of the cloud up there.
And the warm light seen at the back works great!
Congratulations and thanks for share the pic.

Hi Doug

I was un on the Pennies on Christmas Day, but stuck indoors with family and relatives - now you have made me realise what I was missing and I'm envious of you.

I also like the simplicity of the shot as well and the colour on the snow on Ingleborough makes me what to see more of it!


Hi DOug,
Isn't it nice how snow can change a landscape? What normally doesn't look atractive is now a place that must be captured. I like the empty feel of this photo and how my eyes are drawn to the sunlit mountains in the far distance.

P.S. Paul mentioned one dust spot, but there is one more.
