    Hello John
    Yep! Dreaming too! This last week on the run up to Christmas is perhaps the best week of the winter, with all the festivities and party atmosphere, then it goes into wishing the time away before the warm days return. A simple and yet enticing composition, which sums up the very appeal of the Lake District. Love the light in this one and the little burst of colour from the foxglove in the lower right.

    Idyllic!

    Enjoy your weekend - B.

    You asked about my recent "soft focus" shot and the use of perhaps a filter. I have a piece of software from "Premium Effects" which is a Photoshop Plug-in and has what is called a "glow" filter. There are lots of pre-sets and I opted for the "dark glow" after a fair bit of experimentation. Was quite pleased with the result. B.

    As an aside I am getting thoroughly p*ssed off with the blasted sound bite adverts that are now popping up on this site. I have no objections to adverts being displayed here but when they start acting like those on TV it gets beyond a joke, sometimes two at a time go off and it is a complete cacophony of utter tripe. I may well think about leaving in the New Year if it gets any worse. Not sure if it has been raised in the forums but perhaps it should be, not that it would probably make a blind bit of a difference. B.

    a magnificent bird this and you have captured its imposing and menacing stature perfectly here.

    Not a bird to argue with methinks!

    Hello Ann
    these islands are so close and I have flown over them countless times but never set foot on any. When I see beautiful shots like this I do wonder why. Perfectly composed and exposed with a great sense of the scale and beauty here. Appealing and enticing imagery!

    I always wonder what makes people do this sort of thing, I am sure it cannot be just a lack of funds. However these two look magnificent and all the more so in this setting. Captured perfectly.

    this interior looks wonderful. I love the enticing perspectives here, but it is the blaze of colourful flags and banners that make it jump out at you. Clever offset POV too that works perfectly.

    Magnificent!

    Hello Craig
    strange how laundry is a popular theme here on TE. I suppose it is an everyday chore the world over so is a bit of a leveller. This is a wonderfully characterful shot and a double whammy with laundry on all sides. Not sure how quickly the washing against the pink wall will dry, depends on the sun here I suppose rather than the breeze.

    Hi Gerrit
    I really like this Casual type of street scene.
    it has a bit of both....some busy people and some more relaxed people.
    interesting to see the clothing that is worn here too.
    nice shot
    cheers
