Do you ever come across a new location for the first time and your heart just sings with joy because you know it's so right?

Excellent. You're right, that is a beautiful location. I hope you'll check it out at various seasons and we'll get to see it again: the same, yet different.

Wow, that one mossy tree on the back left looks like it was drawn for a fairy tale or something!! Very cool setting, and definitely a great new spot to discover!!

Good morning John, its always great to see nice shots of England - I'm moving there in June, so its great to know there will still be many photo opportunities. Btw - I remember a post you did using HDR tools. Which HDR tool are you currently using?

Thanks for all the comments!

Murmurmal: it was that tree that drew me to the scene in the first place, there are lots of moss and lichen covered trees around here, but they're not all as dramatic as that one!

JohnR: I'm not using any HDR tools at present, I wasn't particularly happy with the degree of image registration achieved, but if I do any more it'll probably just be in photoshop using the method I think I got from Digital Outback Photo (but I can't find a link right now). Basically I need a more robust tripod in order to get two images that register together well - the one I have came free with a magazine subscription - and while it's nice and lightweight - touching the camera to set up the next exposure tends to knock things out of registration. It's something I'd like to experiment more with though.

John.
