hippies :)

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

View over the village on New Year's Eve, and the view from our window as I opened the curtains this morning. Nice to see a bit of blue sky!

I've seen loads of good photos of Gibson Mill in Hardcastle Crags, so I thought I'd have an amble down this afternoon to stretch the legs and see what I could do. Of course it was windy, trying to rain and overcast, but I had a go regardless. One to try again on another day with better conditions.

Aye. On the plus side, it's only a 45 minute walk from home to get there on a better day, and practice does make perfect. :)

I disagree dave. I think it would confuse the issue, and vivid skies can be overdone sometimes.
This is a delicate picture with loads of information on it. It's a beauty as it is. IMHO less is more sometimes.

Thanks for all the positive feedback people. :)

My issue with the weather when the photo was taken wasn't so much the sky, more the wind and drizzle that meant the reflection was not as clear as it could have been. Photos of the mill do look good with a vivid sky, however they'd need to be with a wider angle lens than I was using, or be from further away to capture more of it. It's a very popular subject to photograph, so there are lots of photos and paintings of it on display in pubs, cafes, shops, etc. I've plenty to compare against. :lol:

reflection looks ok to me gaz.The more I look at the pic the more I like it: the colour tone of the buildings for istance, and how the difference of the textures of the buildings and the background makes the buildings stand out. Well worth a place on the wall.

if feasible maybe it would have been good ro fit the reflection of the chimnery in, but that's a personal view

The sky doesn't have to be vivid or dramatic to add to the picture just a bit of detail instead of bland whiteness

If the original was taken in raw it may be possible to squeeze out a bit of detail and shading from the raw image.

Well the wife went for a ride this afternoon, so I took myself up to Redcar Tarn just outside Keighley for an hour, before heading back to meet her at the in-laws just up the road from home. Today's theme therefore is animals. :lol: There are a few more I took in addition to these on my Flickr account.

Thanks Chris, I try my best.

Although I'm a snapper at Featherstone, this past year I've tried to learn more about landscapes, portraits, etc.

Here's a few on Flickr.

1. 2. & 3. are from Newmillerdam in Wakefield - Lovely place to relax and an unwind.

I'd possibly be up for that at some point Chris. Got any locations in mind?

Keep on eye on those sloping horizons.

Also your camera has a fault it keeps putting a light band with distracting text across your pictures. <_<
