Hello all.
Its been a while since my last post due to the short days and long periods of heavy rain.
This morning i had the day off and with good weather forecast i decided to spend the moning in the New forest. It was the best decision ive made for a while, as i was refreshed and invigorated by the beauty and peacefullness that was in abundance.
After following a footpath which was flooded for the most part, for a distance i decided to turn off into the trees, a little further along i found a small stream that gradually widened and was flowing quite fast. After clumsily destroying a portion of overhanging riverbank (just out of shot to the right) i fell about 4 feet down into the stream!

This was the last photo i took from the morning and i have a few more to post tracing my route back!

Thanks for looking

Nicely done, Ewan. Especially in terms of composition.
Apparently you applied the grey filter very well as the sky is quite blue. As a consequence I guess the diagonal tree is a bit darker as well. A minor nit in my opinion.

Hi Ewan,
I think that Annick got a good point. What to do with such a different in exposure. I think in this case you had no real choise. Or, a CP might have done the trick. Anyway, the view down the stream is great. I like how the point of rocks introduce you to the water. Could it be that the photo is slightly tilted?
