From our walk this afternoon. As you can see, it was becoming progressively duller. We are due a lot of rain tonight apparently. That will make a change!

Though perhaps a tad too dark, I really like the last one. Would have cropped off the rocks on the left for an even simpler result.

Thank you Bjorn. The pic above has been lightened per your suggestion and altered on flickr. You are right, although in my defence the original was a proper reflection of what was happening to the weather at the time. I like the version above better than the original, now lost somewhere in flickrdom. Here is the pic with the rest of your tip actioned:

It is probably just my more "traditional" sense that says I personally still like the small outcrop on the left but I think I also appreciate what you are saying. It does give an element of infinity to the result.

Beautiful pics WM. 8)

The rework on that last one makes for a wonderful image! Simple but very effective. A `wallhanger` imho. Excellent.

Thanks for the comments. I was using my latest purchase, a second-hand Nikkor 24mm f2.8D. Great little lens. All that snow has gone now. Glad I went out when I did.

Thanks for considering my comments and putting them into action right away. Great result, indeed something to put up on a wall or use as a desktop image.

Nice pics warth man, I quite like No.2, winter tarn, but what you've done with the snow field is great.

Same thing down here last week, snow on Friday, most gone by Tuesday, with the high ground holding on until the weekend, then gone virtually overnight.

I hope that you went out and made loads of snowmen to help prevent flooding with the rapid snow melt! :lol:

Thanks Arthur. Afraid I forgot all about that bizarre snowman suggestion from officialdom. It will be my fault then, all the local floods.

Actually, there was a lot of water around yesterday evening as I made my way home, but then we'd had fairly prolonged, driven rain for quite a time. Wonder what I'll find when I'm on the road today.

Great shots warth man! I agree, the second version of the last one is just amazing, like the kind of picture I'd have as a desktop background. Nice job :)

Thank you Piero. I've used all three as desktop now. Beginning to think I need to feel warmer so I'll have to check back to last summer for suitable examples. Except that we didn't really have a summer last year.

Last one is excellent - simple, yet so effective.
