Hello Everyone,

May I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

A new year, a new start. For us in Lancashire, it was a New Year's Day with just a slight flurry of snow; cold, bright and delightful for walking. Certainly, after all the meals that have been shared with family and friends, during the Christmas holiday, walking was perhaps, necessary!

The snow is still remaining on the hill tops but has now more-or-less disappeared from the roads.

This view shows a lane near my house; you will be able to see how the greenery has emerged.

Thank you for stopping by.
Please feel free to feedback on any aspect of the photograph. Bev :-)

Hi Berverly,
Beautiful country landscape well presented and composed with great colors and light.
Excellent POV./DOF.
Happy New Year too..

Oh my Bev! That looks so inviting.. and so different from here. We are in a serious deep freeze today ... -34 C this morning. Too cold to leave the house.
Lovely view here, across the valley and off to the horizon. Beautiful shot.
All the best for 2010 to you and your family.

Hi Bev :))

First of all, let me wish you a very Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true!

This is a lovely capture with perfect details! I like the perfect sharpness and POV here. The fence gives a great 3-D view to the whole work. The colors are very well shown and perfectly natural.

Great composition!

Hi Bev,
A marvelous sunny Winter scene from an agreeable POV.
A nice tree serving as a natural frame, and a eautiful fence crossing the perspective.
Wonderful dwellings in the BG with more landscape behind.
A really ideal place for a walk.
I need it a lot after all the food in these Festive days!

***A Happy New Year to you and your beloved ones***

Happy New Year too,

Hi Bev,
Happy New Year! Wish you all the best for 2010.
You started this new year with a fine typical English landscape impression. The fence is a perfect lead in and the tree on the right a nice frame. Excellent control of brightness and contrast, great well balanced composition. A wonderful and enjoyable picture!

Hi Bev'

Amazing composition in this nice POV
Very good details as well in addition to natural colors
Perhaps a closer aperture gave you better DOF
Have a nice and happy new year

Hi Bev,
A start to the year 2010 ... 'strong' with the landscape played excellent.
I wish with all my heart a warm HAPPY NEW YEAR!
A new year with health, happiness both for you as well as your family.
I want to thank you for your visit on my gallery and nice comments you've written.
Well Warmest Regards,

Happy New Year Bev,

I do like the image quality of this classic and beautiful English landscape. The exposure is well balanced and your pp work appears to have been infused with ever so subtle Photomatix or Topaz treatment. The tree and fence are rightfully important anchoring elements. Well done and best regards.

Hi Bev

Well composed shot of this country view, I may have cropped or cloned out the branches in the top left.
Like the diagonal of the fence across the picture.

Regards Derek

Hola Beverley

color y el campo excelente idea te felicito

Hi Beverley, a fabulous start to the New Year with this shot,it's an excellent composition and so sharp, I love it.
I like the tree framing a part of the scene.The PoV shows how the village nestles in the valley.
The DoF enables us to see right across to the distant hills still covered in snow.
Lovely natural colours.

A very Happy New Year to you and your family.
Best wishes Jean.
