    This was taken on a very soft light morning in the West of Scotland on a Royal Photographic Society “self help day”. A few weeks before a local to the area posts that they are going out  photographing and if people want to turn up they can be shown locations that they might never find, no cost, no instruction just photographers who may not know each other meeting and enjoying the outdoors. I thought that I had arrived too late as the sun had started to burn off the morning mist but managed this one. Strangely everyone else (10) were all shooting with wide angles and I put on a 70-200. Processed with a touch of desaturation and negative clarity to enhance the soft mood. Ken

    Another out of the park shot, well done.  When I get back from the trip I’m on I’d love to talk with you.

    Many instances of mine when shooting fall colors say in places like the Great Smokey Mountains, distant grey haze covered hills (and sky) lack so little color that they clash with the wonderful reds and yellows of foreground leaves. Yet this image pleases the eye for the reason that the colors are muted in the entire image. I suspect that you took the dehaze tool in the negative direction.

    Hi Jim, dehaze wasn’t available when I initially processed the image. This was taken 1st April, the odd thing about the North of England and all of Scotland is that Autumn colours in bracken and beech trees are retained until the Spring growth starts to show, Spring is usually much later than April.
