    It was, David. Cold, snowy, sunny, and I encountered only 1 person in a bit over 7 miles. The scenery in that park is stunning.

    Garry, I've said to before, and I'll say it again: you need to do a book. That's a really wonderful image.

  8. Converted in Snapseed (which I seem to be doing 90% of my editing in, these days) from this morning's crop.

    3B884549-9B27-41CD-83DE-93189BDF1083.

    3645442B-A5DB-4635-9CC8-27D589D91F7E.

    C5BBE9B6-4A27-49A2-BA66-588279B1D1FC.

    Orange filter used on the last two. I guess thats somewhat akin to the old "Daylight" filter we used to use for black and white film.

    Martin, do you take a particular approach to composition? You seem so consistently good at that.

    Well that's very kind of you to say so, David! However I don't think I consciously do anything much any more. I tend to aim for the golden section rather than the rule of thirds, and with landscapes I try to get a bit of foreground interest if possible, but really I just move the camera/lens around until the image looks good to me :) Perhaps there are some more complex inbuilt rules that I follow but I couldn't articulate them, I'm afraid.
