Thanks for the nice words.
To answer a question about the flash? i put my flash on full strenght. No tripod here. Forgot to bring it with me.
I dont think i have taken a picture like this for years now as i mainly spend my summer weekends out at vintage vehicle shows around Ireland for a Magazine.
Yes it would make a wonderful Christmas card.
Finding the right light is very hard and there is always that location that sticks in your mind but you never get round to taking a photograph of it.
Snow is here in an abundance and i have uploaded a picture to flickr of a panoramic view of Lough Melvin . I dont think its great but judge for yourselves as i dont like stitching photos together as they appear long and narrow. Judge for yourselves and thanks for the nice comments on my flickr page.
