    'Ello again -

    Here's a couple more from this morning:

    [​IMG]
    The Cabot Tower, built to commemorate John Cabot's 1497 transatlantic voyage from Bristol to Canada in his little ship the Matthew. You get a pretty awesome view of Bristol from the top, but I didn't have time to climb it this morning!

    ...and a couple from the walk home - I've added a touch of warmth to try to age them a bit and capture the atmosphere from the days when the docks were working. Has it worked?

    As much as I enjoy these frosty images I have to quit looking: they're making me cold. :lol:

    I'd say whatever you did to the last 2 images worked nicely - bless you for keeping it subtle! :thumbup: Lovely images.

    Thanks terri!

    I'd offer to take some less chilly pics but the forecast is freezing here for the rest of the week and I've got myself into the mood for photos now...

    "Oh, what a beautiful moooooorning, oh what a beautiful day!"

    Wow. More frozen-leaves-on-the-lawn pics. :D Must be a new trend on TPF, like other trends we've had, such as the crow-trend, the water-drop-disease and so on ;). Very nice. After my short trip into the garden to take MY frozen-leaves-on-lawn pics, I am sitting here wrapped up in a blanket... terri ... that might be the thing to do BEFORE you open TPF on your computer these days ;).

    The "bit of industry" made look old and fading is GREAT.
    The effect works miracles and I really like the composition of the harbour cranes in the last! Wow!

    Thanks all! Occurs to me all of a sudden that I should apologise for the non-'Landscape & Nature' subjects of some of these! I'll be more careful where I post in future :)
