Great tyro 2012-05-10 15:38

Hello Les,

I think I recognise this valley and those sheep from another picture taken that early morning! :)

A perfectly composed photograph, the tree perfectly placed on the "thirds" line and cleverly separating the clear foreground from the misty distant view. The lovely sidelighting provided by the low warm early morning sun has illuminated the ewe and lamb and the mist beautifully. And, of course, the distant trees viewed through the mist are just magical.

And were you looking due north here? :)


Kind Regards,

Default North, South, East or West.....!

Hi Les,

Thanks for your reply!

The reason I asked was because I asked the very same question when I critiqued Gladys's picture from this same (or very near) spot. She replied saying that you always tell her she doesn't know her left from her right, never mind which point of the compass she's facing!

Kindest Regards,


P.S. Yes, it's good fun (well it is if you're an anally retentive twit like me) adding co-ordinates so that a Google map will pop up. Very easy, actually. All you need is to download Google Earth (if you haven't already) and just make sure when you go into Options or Tools (or something like that) that you set it so co-ordinates are expressed in decimals rather than degrees, minutes and seconds - i.e. 54.598762N and not 54 35' 26"N. Then, once you find the spot where you were when you took the shot, simply hover the mouse pointer over that place and read off the co-ordinates from the bottom of the page and jot them down on a scrap of paper - then you can pop them into the boxes in the "Upload Photo" page. But do remember that longitude almost everywhere in Britain (apart from the likes of Kent) is negative, so don't forget the "-" sign or your map will end up somewhere in the North Sea!
