...to you all :o)

This was taken last year, at a place very dear to my heart called Moyles Court, in the New Forest.
Although this doesn't have much content or information Nature-wise, this is just my way of wishing you all a VERY happy holiday season, wherever you are in the world...so i hope it doesn't get removed!

Here's to 2009...Cheers!

Hallo Paul
And all of the best for you too! I cannot for one moment think why it should be removed.
This a very beautiful scene, with great atmosphere, wonderful light and colours. Almost like a painting or the ideal setting for a postcard image. I just love the very long shadows of the trees on the surface and the golden colour of the sky in the distance. Like always a delightful landscape which I enjoyed looking at.
Best regards.

Hi Paul
A lovely shot of a very familiar place to me - I went to Moyles Court school for three years between the age of 8-11. Me and my mates also used to play in the streams and sand/gravel quarry workings in the area.
Hope you have a good 2009 too!

Hola Paul,
excelente disparo,
efectivo pov e iluminación,
finos detalles y tonos...

Hello Paul !
What a splendid picture you offer us for the Christmas feasts ! The light coming from behind the tree, the shadows, the colors, everything is amazingly beautiful, and your vertical composition makes it look even more beautiful. I even like the barbed wire on the FG, its a bit unusual here, but well, they look good on this picture. Very well done, and I also wish you the best for Christmas feasts and for New Year, to you and all those you love.

Fantastic shot, Paul, this motive is beautiful and I like the warm colours and the dark sky. The light and the long shadows are fantastic, thanks and Merry Christmas

Great composition, I like how you've included that tattered fence post!

Hi Paul. I can see no reason to take this off at all. Fantastic to gwt such colour and detail with the camera looking into the early morning sun. We can see the frost on the leaves and the shadows ffrom the trees. very warm colours. wel ldone TFs.

I hope you and yours have a very happy Christmas and new year.

You sure do well with these images..My goodness...i think you have a special talent for certain situations that another could not capture with the highest priced of film gear. Your style is your own!

All the best to you too, dear Paul...It has been along time and i see that your gallery has added an array of wonderful nature captures i have missed.You couldnt have chosen a better picture to close 2008, for this one shot reflects every bit your style of work.The scene looks ethereal and the mood created is amazing.The mellow filtering light warms up the onlookers heart.The colours are rich and the tones sombre.Excellent PoV and composition.I cannot resist adding this to my "Unforgettable" theme.
Here is wishing you a and family a Peaceful and Healthy New Year.
