Well, I just can't believe it 100 today! (I certainly don't feel that old! Just joking!) It really doesn't feel that long since I was introduced to this excellent site and very timidly uploaded my first shot!
Let me say a big thank you to all contributors here who have inspired me, and all the people who have supported me and offered good advice, not only to improve my photography, but also to keep me motivated and interested.
As a complete change from my theme, and to remind myself of a very happy weekend spent at a wedding on Anglesey, I am posting this view of Snowdonia. I was standing in the grounds of Plas Newyyd looking over the Menai Straits towards the mountains.
(If you would like further information about Plas Newyyd, please see my earlier postings.)
Here is some information about Snowdon from Wikipedia:
Snowdon (Welsh: Yr Wyddfa), the highest mountain in Wales and the highest British mountain south of the Scottish Highlands, is "probably the busiest mountain in Britain". It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Welsh: Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri), in Gwynedd. The summit is known as Yr Wyddfa (IPA: [ɐɾ 'wɪðva], Welsh for "the tumulus" and lies at an altitude of 1,085 m (3,560 ft) above sea level. For comparison, it is the same height as Table Mountain in South Africa. As the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon is one of three mountains climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge. The English name Snowdon comes from the Saxon "Snow Dun", meaning "snow hill", although the amount of snow on Snowdon in winter has been decreasing recently, having dropped by more than 55% since 1994.
Many thanks for stopping by.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)

Congratulations for the 100 photos!!
I like this one especially, there's a lot of peace and quietness in this countryside image.
And a nice contrast between the different strong tones of green of the land and the pale colour of the sky.

Congratulations on achieving this land mark of 100 postings!
This is a great picture from your tiny camera to celebrate it.
Sharp, crisp, and a wonderful sense of perspective from the interesting FG, through the middle ground with sunlit grazing sheep, then all the way to those distant hazy mountains.

This is certainly a few degrees warmer than your last image - we need to take off our coats and hats to view this lovely tranquil early summer scene! The glorious range of greens, and the blue haze on the distant mountains are caught perfectly. The shade in the foreground prevents the piture being too full of mid-tones.
Best wishes, and congratulations on your achievements over 100 posts....Maggie

Good choice for your century Bev! It's a fine shot with good definition/sharpness in the trees and grass and a tantalising glimpse of the mountains in the distance. TFS.

Congratulations on your 100th post on TE and what a fine image you have chosen. This is a beautiful view between the lush evergreen trees across the river to the high mist covered mountains. As usual you have provided a very discriptive note as to the location and features of this beautiful spot.

Hello Bev. This is just stunning. The light, the layers and the backdrop are just perfect. Beautiful scene putting the pasture in the middle against the dreamy sky. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Happy 100th and congratulations. You marked this milestone with a fine shot. Classical compositional proportions, good detail in the middle distance, and a nicely increasing haziness first on the field of sheep and then on the mountains. I like the glimpse of water between the trees. An excellent exposure all round. Maybe the frame lines are a little thick for my taste.
Excellent note, thanks.
Anyway, keep on shooting and watch the centuries go by.

Congratulations for reaching your century; TE's first milestone.
Good shot of the Welsh countryside with Snowdon in the background. You found some good light for last June and took advantage of the stunning greens at that time of year. I like the glimpse of water through the trees just adding a small but important extra element to the scene. Well done and bring on the next 100!

Congratulations on your 100th upload, a great milestone! The Welsh landscape here is beautiful with lovely greenish hues. Also the light is pleasant and I like the little hazy view of the background mountains. Well done!

A nice green scene of the Wales countryside
This greenery is so refreshing.
sagar (2410) 2008-04-24 7:44
I am new to your gallery, and might a bit late in congratulating you on your 100. Nice shot. A symbolic one- it seems as if you are standing where you are(at 100), and miles to go (into those smoky mountains far off).
Very good composition.
josepmarin (57517) 2008-04-28 12:44
First, congratulations for reaching the milestone of the 100 posts.
Your photo to celebrate it is attractive, with a beautiful green and natural landscape, and with a good work in the exposure that has a nice effect of degraded as it moves away towards the background.
Good color, very soft and elegant, in a nice composition.
scroller (3407) 2008-05-10 6:41
