Are you on the Durdle Door site. It looks quite nice and is in a cracking location, we let lucky the day we went, we drove about 30 miles in thick fog and when we got within a mile it broke to brilliant sunshine. Considering the weather generally we were really lucky.

One thing to note is that a landslip has taken the steps out down to the Durdle Door beach, but it looks like they were getting ready to start work putting new ones in, if they haven't then be prepared for a bit of a scramble to get down to the beach.

I find it difficult to believe that your shot was taken within a few days of mine of Churn Milk Joan. It looks like summer on the south coast. :D

I know it was cold, I was out in it take the photo. :D

No poem, but another walk (or near run!) to get up for another slightly larger stone in the Calder Valley this evening. Didn't get up there in time to catch the light as I'd wanted, but took a few shots anyway as I needed to catch my breath before walking back down.

Had another go at editing this shot tonight (hence it won't be my entry, just after feedback from my experimenting). How does this look in comparison? I don't think that the Halo effect is some much of an issue, but I can't decide whether I've gone a little ott with the lightening of the monument.

Did you keep your receipt? You might have got your money back if you told them it wasn't waterproof.

But there was no tent as it ended out at sea. Lost property, perhaps! :D

We were left open to a downpour at two o'clock in the morning, suffice to say we packed up and soaking wet in the bargain.

Here's my effort lost in a total white out driving across the Yorkshire Dales from Aysgarth to Bolton Abbey last week, the only person we saw was a farmer on a quad with a gun strapped to it, my reassurances to my wife we would make it out alive were not that convincing. 20130317_094040.jpg

And one with my 5D MKII

I think that needs a bit of detail/colour in the foreground, leave the dark band of trees and lift the foreground a bit, my personal taste, but I think it would turn a good un, into a cracker.

I was looking out of my window this morning, watching the Jacob sheep in the field in front of the house that were covered in snow and trying to huddle together and shelter from the wind and snow, and it made me think. I've changed my mind about the theme for this month, can we change it to "The Bleak Outdoors"? :lol:

Think I'd agree with you on that one. :)

I like that. As a minor suggestion, it perhaps could have been improved by getting up close to the rocks in the foreground to add a bit more depth to the shot imo, but a good un regardless. :)
