JUST PERFECT (06/12/11)

After a night that sounded a touch unpleasant from the noise on the camper roof I woke to a perfect day._C069733_4_5_6_7_tonemapped_edited-1    This is Haylands Bridge spanning the river Ure. We are in Wensleydale but as far as I know there is not a river Wensley……..the dale is named after the cheese………I think!

A wonderful start to the day. It’s time for another walk before it spoils itself.

  2. Wonderful, Adrian! Great images and perfect processing. I wonder if I can move there...ha ha...here is a windy and a rainy day!
    My best regards!

  4. Laura, it was a gorgeous morning. When I got back and uploaded the images I was not best pleased. I should really post a week behind reality. I just love shooting processing and posting.

    Daliana, processing is never perfect. The first one has shadows from the bubbles in the water. I love your colour popping but now you are getting more subtle and reintroducing a little colour. I do like reasonable HDR and high contrast images.

    Trevor, Thanks. The first may print, it was pretty dark when I shot it from a bean bag....well my jacket crumpled up on a wall. It wants a bit of the right cropping out and the repetetive bubbles cloning away. I shot it again on the way home but it was rubbish in brighter light.

  5. Wallis (and Grommit) will be glad you're there. Good old Wensleydale.

  6. very nice, the light morning snow (breeze) goes so good with your processing (I think is a HDR or?) very very nice shots Adrian, as always my compliment for your taste

  7. Adrian, these are excellent.
    The light in the last one is just perfect.

  8. Thanks, now Wallis and Grommit and their trip to the moon is stuck in my head! Well, at least something resides there for a while. Nice walk.

  9. Nice shots, the sun is creating warm hues over the landscape! I like snow when it looks "warm"! And I love Wensleydale cheese - not as good as french cheese of course, but not too bad! :)))))

  10. Fantastic images Adrian... follow (against the flow if my memory serves me right) the Ure up to Aysgarth.. The waterfalls will be in good flow.

  12. That first photo is an absolute corker! I would love one about 24 inches by 30 inches to hang on the wall.

    Happy Christmas, Adrian,

  13. Wow.. you're not kidding.. you sure did. Beautiful images.. just gorgeous.

  14. Adrian, I must be honest, the more I see HDR the less I like it, but that is my opinion. You must like it a lot.

  15. Wszystkie śliczne, ale pierwsze jak z bajki. Pozdrawiam

  16. Only the last one looks like a photo to me. The others look like paintings! Light like that is too good to be real.

  17. Bob, Wallis and Grommitt are I hope alive and well.

    Laura, yes all HDR and still the snow was not as pink as it looked. Thank you.

    Keith, Thanks, I get as much fun from processing as I do from my wanders.

    Dale, accept my apologies. They are annoying.

    DeeBee, I enjoy soft cheeses but do prefer hard cheese for everyday consumption. The snow has been washed away.

    Andrew, Thanks. Aysgarth is about nine miles down stream but Hardraw Force is within striking distance.

    Glo, many thanks, glad you enjoyed them.

  18. Canadian Chickadee, If you drop me an e-mail I will re process it for print and e-mail the file. You can then have it printed on the paper of your choice locally.
    Happy Christmas.

    Hilary, it was a beautiful morning. Thanks.

    Horst, it is a matter of personal taste. I do like HDR. The Topaz type filters are a bit over the top even for me.

    Giga, Wielkie dzięki i Wesołych Świąt.

    Pauline, I never let the truth get in the way of a bright and sparkly image.

  19. One of my favourite cheeses. Looks to me as though you are perfecting a view for your home brew Christmas cards. lol. For me the second would look even better in a panoramic shape with some of the plain sky lopped off. Love the others

  20. The second shot is like a painting. This is my first visit to your blog and i love these pictures. Thanks for sharing them! :)

  21. Ladyfi, they are good for me. I know of people that could have done them better. Thank you.

  22. John, I am starting to panic over the Christmas cards. The snow is not thick enough yet. I agree there is a lot too much dead space in the second.
    Thanks.

    Ruby, It is good to see you. Thanks for your kind comment.

  26. Congratulations Adrian on receiving the POTW honour.

    I love bridges and mountains. The lighting in the last image has the wow factor!

  28. Texwisgirl, Thank you.

    Don, it was a wonderful morning.

    Kerry, thank you, I'm not sure of the master bit.

    Javier, many thanks, greetings to you too.

    Daniel, it's easy when the light is good.

    Missing Moments, thank you.

  29. There's nothing to add to the post that I can say but the first picture particularly appeals to me. I love your satement "Pauline, I never let the truth get in the way of a bright and sparkly image.". No warts 'n' all for you!

  30. Graham, That Pauline, I don't know? Castigating works of genius! It's all good fun.

  31. I accept that this is a little outside my range at the moment, the second one looks like a watercolour that would hang on any wall.
