Google Earth is telling me this little place is an asparagus farm. I liked the thick tracks leading in…

This is an AEB capture and processed as HDR on my Mac using Photomatix Pro.

This little fella kept following me the other day, probably hoping that I had some food. Sadly I hadn't…. But at least he posed long enough to get this close up shot!

The extreme winter conditions at Bolton Abbey (or Bolton Priory!) in the English Yorkshire Dales national park.

Today was VERY cold but we love this place and there are also some lovely walks here too.

I thought black and white would suit this snowy scene and maybe emphasise the bitterness of winter too?

Direct into the sunlight .. it wasn't a clear day, the sun was behind thin clouds all day. But I thought it'd make a nice pic. Especially in b/w!

Cool, calming and a peacefully foggy start to the day. Plus there's some exciting fishing to watch, if you feel the need.....!!

I walked on after taking the shot and enjoyed the morning in the countryside. The fog cleared shortly after this pic was taken!

Cropped, and processed in Topaz Clean on my Mac. A few more touches done in Aperture.

I love foggy days!
