Another excellent glimpse of your back-yard here Karen. Well done, Herb

Thank you Herb for your lovely compliment you have given, yes "my backyard" you could say this is on my own doorstep, in a way it is, Wales has the most beautiful scenery I have seen, when I take a photo I see a story and want to bring this story through pictures to you, your imagination is different to the next one, so whatever you see with your mind in this photo, and other photos means I've achieved what I set out to do.

Warm Wishes,

Very beautiful dak colours of sky. Really very good photo! on March 10, 2010

Very fantastic!! I love that when the clouds make that special effect, that it seems like sculpures! And in the big view you can see the great quality in light, and sharpness.

Greetings Stefan

great production values again - nicely done :)


Karen James on March 10, 2010

Thank you Artur for your very kind words you have given, when I was taking this photo the clouds were coming down over the mountain, I thought it would create atmosphere and mood.thank you again:)) I'm glad you like it.

Hi Stefan thank you for your lovely compliment you have given, I'm glad you opened this full size, as like you say the "clouds make that special effect" I'm so pleased that you can see "sculptures" forming, I've always said we see a story in a photo, I try to achieve this, and you have seen you own story, thank you.

Hi Graham thank you for your lovely comment you have given, I'm so pleased you like this shot, the clouds were forming and coming down slowly over the mountain, I try not to leave shots like this go, because one minute their there the next gone, thank you again:)))
