|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Now that spring is officially here in the UK, I thought I'd post a chilly winter picture of the local Knaresborough Golf Course, which I took early one morning from the side of the lake that is used for water skiing, (hence the buoys in the water).
The lake is man made and is actually a gravel pit, from which aggregates have been removed for building and roads. There is still an active quarry adjacent to this lake, although you wouldn't know it. The whole area here has a sand and gravel base, as the course of the River Nidd, used to run here prior to the last Ice age, which blocked and changed it's flow to the present course about 1 mile away. (2kms)
Image consists of 3 seperate RAW conversions, blended into one. Levels adjusted on each, some dodge and burn to bring out the detail of the trees and branches. Also + contrast, sharpen, add frame & title, resize for TL and post.

Superbe cette luminosité sur ces arbres givrés. J'aime beaucoup la réflection dans les tons sombres.
