FROSTED COPSE

We are now at the end of January and still no significant snow fall this year. The next couple of images photographed on a walk through rough woodland near my home in Auchterarder, Perthshire. A useful lesson here, for all photographers, is not to delete images in-camera before checking them on a (properly calibrated) computer screen.

Passing this frosted copse, my eyes quickly landed on the interesting, spindly, stark form of the foremost tree; and by the use of a long lens I attempted to isolate it from its background.

A short distance from the copse, I found this peaceful spot where a shallow stream gave rise to a ripple effect on the surface as it passed over stones in the river bed; I decided to emphasise the motion with the use of a long exposure. The in-camera image did not look very promising on the LCD display and I was going to delete the file; fortunately I didn’t as I’m rather pleased with this rendition.
