It deepens like a coastal shelf
They are, simply, stunning.
Thank you so much for that. Amazing!
breathtaking. thanks for sharing these. you all must have a lot of mist there?
I hate to disagree on my favourite blog, but I'm afraid, I don't realy like it. Looks like it's been meddled with far too much. All these colour re-balanced and photoshopped pictures - especially of landscapes - provoke the same reaction as CGI in me.
Maybe it has been touched-up, but I've seen winter sunrises like this. Yes, Suki, we do get a lot of early morning mist in the countryside, at certain times of the year. One of my favourite memories is of standing in a field in Dorset at dawn, with mist swirling around me. It was completely silent, apart from the barely audible squeaking of field mice.
Oh, dagnabit! This competition was open to everyone and I was going to put in one or two of my photos - and I forgot!! Oh well, the selection they've put up are stunning, I doubt my little snaps would have come anywhere...
I think the coastal one wins by a nose for me as this seems just a little over-photoshopped, appealing as it otherwise is.In fact I'd like to see a ban on the photoshopping of competition photographs just as I don't want athletes to start being allowed to take performance-enhancing drugs.
I agree poet Laura-eate... especially pictures of landscapes. I find it infuriating. I'd much rather look at nature than someone else's (invariably lurid) interpretation of how nature should be... And the athlete analogy is a good one. I just don't trust what I'm seeing nowadays. So when a genuinely good photo comes along, I rarely beleive it...
I can see why you chose this one, in particular, Steerforth; it has a sort of Victorian water-colour look about it. At first glance I thought it was another lucky rescue from the skip... If it had been Victorian, though, there certainly would have been a sheep or two in there somewhere.Anna C
