A very creative use of the low angled sun to create such an appealing image. Love the vagueness in the cycler and tree. Those shadows coming to meet me are fabulous!
Richard Standley: Thank you very much for your kind appreciation Don.
A nice picture without the cyclist Richard, but oih the difference with him. Very moody with excellent long shadows.

Beautiful!

Perfect composition and light. Wonderful shot.

beautiful Richard. More of your early morning magic.

oui mais attend ! le bonheur ! tu te rends compte... le frais, la brume, la gelée, le soleil qui pointe... il a raison si son derrière lui permet... le mien il voudrait pas... mais quelle magnifique photo, quelle ambiance !

les fleurs c'est des renoncules que j'avais acheté et que j'ai pas planté tout de suite car j'avais peur que ça gèle et elles ont crevé... tant pis...

bonne journée
Richard Standley: Merci beaucoup pour tout Flo.
Bonne fin de soirée à toi.
