Wow. THis is about as good as it gets, Dick. I love it a lot. I have never been in the right spot at the right time to get anything close to this kind of image. This will be your best image of 2008. I don't know what you could possibly do to many it any better than this is.

Waarlijk een fantastische foto. Let wel. als je met mooie foto's begint, wordt het wel moeilijk om het hele jaar beter te worden. Ga zo door Zeun.

This is an absolutely stunning image. Still, ghostly and wintery. Wonderful.

I have posted the first seven scenes of Grindhirst as that was the most voted for.

Hallo!
Hoe gaat het met je?
Ik ben niet nederlander maar ik ben englander. Ik komme uit London. Ik spreke een beetje nederlands ... so I'd better say the rest in English - yeah man excellent photos!

GAWO said...

This is very very pretty. How many shots did you have to do before you got this pretty one?

Old Wom Tigley said...

Me again Dick... thought I'd ask first.. would you mind if I save this to my P.C. for my Desktop Background?

Astrid Witte said...

niet sleeeeeeeecht! Ik zou alleen aan de linkerkant een klein stukje afknippen, is een beetje een groot zwart stuk. (dat krijg je als je bij de fotokring zit).

Dick said...

Thank you, I think it was "right spot, right time".

Ted said...

I know how hard it is to get good sun ray shots like this. In all my time shooting I've only gotten one I really like. This is a beauty.
