Thats a great photograph

Thank you. Mainly a matter of getting the exposure right to avoid blowing the highlights. There are some in the background that are a bit hot but I was more concerned to get the big tree in the foreground looking right.

This one was exposed at 1.7 stops under the average metered value - the camera I was using allows for manual exposure control in 1/3 stop increments - plus some minor adjustment in Photoshop to lift the shadows a bit.
