Every Now and then we get some amazing sunrises.. in Cropredy..
This is the actual site of where a bloody Civil war took place in April of 1644.. between the Round Heads and the Parlimentarians.. the battle eneded as a bit of a stalemate itself.. however it has left a legacy for Cropredy to hold onto.. the other thing that Cropedy is good at is running the annual music festival.. Fairport Convention .. held every August. Have a wonderful day

We had beautiful sunrises in Fall, but now the sky is dull here.
The horizontal cloud lines are coloured so strongly, ranging from yellow to fiery red while the silhouettes of the trees are all standing nicely on a row.
Best regards, Paul

Stunning view here: the silhouettes of the trees create a line contrasting well against the deep red of the sky. Lovely.

I had admired this photo just before supper, and I wished to return to it after the coffee: -) it is a breathless sunset, the colors are excellent and the composition, with great space left to the sky, is magnificent. perfect the black shadows of the trees.
My best wishes for to wonderful 2012

All the best and have a Merry Christmas,
jjcordier (75590) 2011-12-26 23:21
Superbes couleurs de ce coucher de soleil. J'aime aussi beaucoup la rangée d'arbres dont les silhouettes se détachent de belle façon sur le ciel. J'aurais peut-être un peu réduit la zone noire en bas et surtout coupé les zones floues de chaque côté de l'image.
gildasjan (41544) 2011-12-27 6:20
Un très bon cadrage au tiers pour cette belle réalisation de nuit.Très bien vus ces arbres sur la ligne d'horizon.
Bonne fin d'année

Hello Richard ,
A wonderful moment , no doubt . The silhouettes of the trees against this fantastic red sky is just stunning . Nevertheless , I agree with other comments about the framing , and the WS of JC works yet better .

I hope you had nice Christmas in Cropredy, maybe you visited nearby Lion's pub. and in winter no need to get up before five to see a sunset. Amazing colours, one can imagine it was a battlefield. Maybe some ghosts are still there. I like these trees.
have a beautiful day
Graal (96756) 2011-12-28 0:09
amazing red & orange sky during the sunrise time. Nice silhuettes of trees by road. Branches from left a bit disturbing. Image good on wallpaper.
Have a nice day & Happy New Year!
josepmarin (57711) 2011-12-28 1:23
there is a wonderful graphical game between the black silhouettes of the landscape and of the trees, and the sky at sunrise time, with a few really beautiful tonalities red and orange.
The aesthetic result obtained with this composition is superb.
A great work.
I wish to you and yours a very happy New Year!
alin-m (3716) 2011-12-29 2:31

The orange tonalities of the sky are just fabulous and I really like the line of silhouettes in background. Guess you captured a wonderful moment! Claude's idea seems also very good!Wish you a Happy New Year!
CLODO (30044) 2012-01-02 1:13
Somptuous sunrise colors with the trees silhouettes! I would have cropped or cloned the blurred branches at left and the black triangle at bottom right.
Nevertheless, a good winter atmosphere!
axiotea (21649) 2012-01-03 22:51
Indeed, a beautiful sunrise with lovely colour gradation making for a fine contrast with the silhouetted landscape.
I wish you All the Best for 2012 ;D
