Not Christmas Shopping by fueast

Not Christmas Shopping

hmm seemed to have failed in my plan to get out early just as the shops opened. Took the dog out and it was such a glorious day that we went for a stomp through the fields. Probably will pay for it later since I have to head into town. Great gig last night btw - lots of crappy iphone pics. Might share one later.
Also - why are these bales still out? Its weird..
Ps wiggo! Wiggo! Sports personality of the year and quite right too. See you in Leeds Brad.
Gorgeous shot, the tones and light are spectacular and what a sky! I finished all my Christmas shopping this week - did it all online!

Beautiful. My first thought was why are they still out. I suppose that if they are just using the straw for bedding for cattle it wont really matter - the bales are so dense that only the outside will be affected by the rain.
December 16th, 2012  
Just beautiful.
December 16th, 2012  
The light is STUNNING! A fav for sure!
December 16th, 2012  
beautiful light/colour stunning shot fav
December 16th, 2012  
Beautiful colour contrasts, and great sky.
Don't blame you BTW, this is much better than fighting the crowds around the shops!!!
December 16th, 2012  
beautiful golden colours!
December 16th, 2012  
Gorgeous colour, light and comp!
December 16th, 2012  
Alison, this is an amazing shot. Fav for sure. The lighting, colors and composition are wonderful!
December 16th, 2012  
Nice bit of big sky and golden light-ness. My Christmas shopping just about all done. Gloat. (Hey but you win some, lose some, my pics are crappy and yours aren't)
December 16th, 2012  
Wonderful landscape shot!
December 16th, 2012

December 16th, 2012  
Beautiful deep rich golden colour and sky Alison! There are a few farmers around where I live that don't get their bales in out of the weather.

I love this Alison. As others have said, the golden tones are wonderful, and I really like the lines and the clouds and the whole composition. Fav
December 16th, 2012  
Fabulous light, trees, lines, clouds, composition. Another winner
December 16th, 2012  
Great shot.
December 16th, 2012  
Wow, with light like that, I'd not be xmas shopping too! Fabulous. fav
December 16th, 2012  
@cindymc Thanks - the wide angle lens was expensive but worth it I think. So glad I copied Peter and got that!
December 16th, 2012  
A real beauty...just for a change!!! Consistently amazzing shots........bravo and another fav!! Must save up for the wide angle lens.........fantastic result
December 16th, 2012

Sam
Stunning shot love it ....faved :))
December 16th, 2012  
Oooh who needs quiet shops when you've got views like this? It looks like August though - we've got next year's crops coming through. Wide angle?
December 16th, 2012  
@judithg No I did take it this morning honest! Yes wide angle. Is Santa bringing you one?
December 16th, 2012  
@fueast I think I have failed to make my wishes clear enough - so it'll probably be slippers...
December 16th, 2012  
Cool view
December 16th, 2012  
So beautiful. The light, the lines in the field. Fav
December 16th, 2012  
Love the perspective! Great sence of space. Great colours too. Awesome!
December 16th, 2012  
Amazing colours!
December 16th, 2012  
this is a great shot - I'd say this looks more like late September rather than mid December! Can't work out why they are still out and not wrapped...maybe @happypat will know?
December 16th, 2012  
That sky and those clouds are amazing! You are the queen of the wide angle shot Alison, a fav from me!
December 16th, 2012  
This is just beautiful... the golden plains, the deep blue sky... amazing...

December 17th, 2012  
Ooo LOVE. Love the light and the colours and the fact it reminds me of home, which is the opposite end of the world from where you are... but not where I am now.
December 17th, 2012  
Absolutely stunning. Brilliant capture. The pov is incredible. The lighting superb. Color is vibrant. Fav.
December 17th, 2012

December 17th, 2012  
beautiful colours and depth
December 17th, 2012  
Gorgeous, the light is lovely....hope the shopping wasn't too traumatic, im hitting Asda on Sunday morning, not looking forward to it =(
December 17th, 2012  
Super shot Alison, great lines and colours. All pleased for WIggo here, even though the 200 attempts to vote on my mobile for him and Mike Weir all failed!!
December 17th, 2012  
@seanoneill You mean David? he was also a worthy winner for sure - just not a man of the people like Bradley. I mean who else would end their speech with "ave a good Christmas everyone" !
December 17th, 2012  
@fueast Yes, Mike Weir is a mate of mine!! Senior moment!! Wiggo was definitely our favourite, but we wanted to vote for DAVID Weir too. In the end we voted for neither due to the busyness of the lines.
December 17th, 2012  
Lovely shot - don't worry about the shopping - it can wait
December 17th, 2012  
great colours, composition and light. fav
December 17th, 2012

@fueast Very nearly overshot by one...and just passed a middle aged woman worse for wear in a gutter so quite glad I plumped for a coffee in the end ... even if I'm relying on predictive typing quite heavily...
December 21st, 2012  
Congrats on #1 in the Top 20! And your foggy photo is there too! So well deserved. You are one talented lady! (How's the head. mine is struggling after the last glass of red last night !! :( )
December 22nd, 2012  
@jackie8 Head is fine but I've left the van somewhere (?) and now have a 3 mile walk through the pouring rain to retrieve it! Must stop doing that... Congrats on #2 btw - your shot was soo much more christmassy and should have been 1 really.
