Snowy field with tree

Normanton Hills as the sun started to set this afternoon.

The day up until that point had been grey, snowy and sleety, and then we have an hour or so of blue sky.

PP 15th January 2013
Absolutely beautiful capture. Great lines and lovely sky.

Gorgeous shot. Still no snow here, but not complaining!

what a blue sky ! Like the spot of yellow ....we can guess that the sun is rising and it is going to be a beautiful day !
posted January 14th, 2013  
The snow has thrown up the contours of the furrows beautifully and they, and the path and hedge all lead the eye to the horizon and the wonderfully blue sky. Great wintery shot!

Wow well timed to see that sky. Looks glorious!
posted January 14th, 2013  
Ooh Sean this is lovely - that blue sky is divine by itself, but with the tree and snowy foreground it all works so perfectly!
posted January 14th, 2013  
love the lines and the composition.

Beautiful capture Sean, missing the snow!

Congratulations - a wonderful capture./ A Fav.

Gorgeous Sean, we haven't managed to see any blue sky today, just solid snow all day. Not that I'm complaining I love the snow ;-)

What a lovely wintry view :)

I got a load of snow, but not enough for a school closure sadly, it takes more than 2 or 3 inches!

Beautiful serene scene

Beautiful Sean. Great leading lines, lighting and pov. Composition of the lone tree really pulls the whole photo together.

bello scatto, che splendida giornata!

Must be viewed large for max-enjoyment - the details, especially the furrows appear in super 3D!

Crisp - lovely colours

Beautiful - love the pov you chose and the composition!

Great winter scene - love the leading lines to the horizon

Gorgeous field capture, looks like you needed some blur sky.

Gorgeous capture ...... I love the lines in the field and the blue of the sky :)

Lucky you (in the photographic sense!) to have snow! We had a few miserable sleety bits, then it turned to rain. Love the leading lines and that ELT in the distance.... distinct shades of @fuest about this! A fav.

That is truly gorgeous....ours went when it rained!! More on the way though!! And lucky you blue sky too.......this is a new elt?!!

Beautiful low light skipping across the furrows.

Lovely scene. You certainly did get more snow than us and to get the sun as well made for a perfect image.
posted January 14th, 2013  
Fabulous landscape. I love the lines leading into the photo and that tree is nearly an ELT.
posted January 14th, 2013  
Very nice.

Beautiful shot!
posted January 15th, 2013  
perfect shot imo. Love it.
posted January 15th, 2013  
Great viewed large. When I see shots like this I realise I have a serious problem. If I had taken it I would be deleting the bushes in front of the tree. No need to at all looks great as it is.
posted January 15th, 2013  
Nice one Sean! I am beginning to recognise your landscapes. Your style is quite distinctive and its not just the familiar East Midlands landscape. Some day you'll have to test me by taking some more somewhere else! :-)
posted January 15th, 2013  
Love this Sean. Looks crisp and chilly.
posted January 15th, 2013  
Love the lines in the field. A very wintry scene.
