The last few weeks have had some beautiful calm mornings with valley mists and sometimes some frost, this has allowed me to capture some extremely tranquil scenes, especially a few miles inland where there are no breezes from the sea.
Blackwater is near Newport (the Isle of Wight capital) but has a totally different feel to it than Newport, it is all countryside side with small streams and hills with valleys and just a wonderful place to be, especially early in the morning with the sun just rising in the Southeast (as it does in November).
What do you people think of this shot? Its well away from my usual style but i felt i just had to add it to my collection!
I used no filters or fancy effects, just a slight S in the curves in photoshop!

Excellent shot, the composition is brilliant and the fact that every object is perfectly focused makes it an outstanding photo. It is just a beautiful shot all around.
Thanks for sharing

I must admit that great foggy morning mood have been captured here! I'm waiting for such a good weather here in Poland...

Hi Jamie. An idyllic scene. Sheep grazing peacefully as the morning sun gently caresses the fields and brightens the autumn leaves. Lovely softness provided by the mist.Nice division of the canvas created by the lines of trees.A very special shot. Regards. Klaudio.

This one simply is gorgeous! Autumn at it's best. What a beautiful scenery. I like very much the buildup of this photo with this foreground of the plants!
Greetings from grey and rainy Germany!

Excellent landscape shot! Your composition is great using the trees to frame the sheep in the field. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and DOF. The early morning mist creates a mood of tranquility which you have captured nicely.

Hi Jamie, The title explains it all. Excellent capture of this landscape with rolling hillsides and lifting fog.

I've seen a lot of your other shots and your gallery is really impressive. So I know what you mean when you say this is a departure from the norm for you.
I was instantly attracted to it - very seasonal and the photo itself just screams 'Autumn'. I like the layers in this shot; you have a clear foreground, a middle element with the big tree and the animals, and the backdrop with the strong line of dark trees. the only thing I don't personally like is the small tree at the fron right corner. I feel this is a bit intrusive and blocks the view as opposed to complementing it as the bush in the left corner does.
But overall, a very nice photo beautifully taken.

capthaddock (28790) 2007-11-08 9:11
Great timing, the light and natural weather conditions did the job of creative filtering, I really like the depth given by the mist, being extra picky I wish the tree at right wasn't there.

lovely image. Like a dreamscape. Not quite of this world but like a scene in a happy dream. Love the high points of colour with the mistyness.
amaryllis (35079) 2007-11-08 10:20
un très beau tableau automnal que tu nous présentes et il s'y dégage avec cette brume une certaine atmosphère
tres bon cadrage et j'aime bien l'arbre sur la droite qui a perdu déjà beaucoup de feuilles
steliosk (4802) 2007-11-08 15:13

J'ai regardé tes photos que j'aime beaucoup.. la mer..
Mais je t"écris sur celle là car elle change des couchers de soleil..
Ambiance paisible.. Ces couleurs d'automnes sont reposantes...
Félicitation pour cette photo et surtout pour l'ensemble de tes photos..

Great shot. Those mist really going well with the picture. The picture feels like came out of poems. Spectacle shot and those sheep are looking stunningly beautiful along with that two big trees on the foreground. Thank you for sharing it.
sta (164) 2009-07-04 7:22
I like the gradation of the trees...very rich colour (red, yellow, brown and green beyond)
cbrman (21645) 2009-07-04 7:27
Une photographie pleine de douceur et de légèreté.
J'aime beaucoup la brume qui enveloppe la scène, cela donne une excellente ambiance.
