Carrying on in a similar vein to yesterday. This is at one of the entrances to Caynham Camp Iron Age Hill Fort, a place I walk to often for the views. Not on this day though.
A beautiful image. The fog gives to it the blurry background and the branches of the trees are not only a good frame for the spanish bull (it's a joke) but also a good subject. Well done.

Another great shot. I do love that fog! And that bare tree is fantastic!

What beautiful tree, superb!

Fantastic work. The background is so moody and makes the photo. IMHO :)

Great image,very atmospheric.I just wonder if there´s a whole herd of her mates hiding just below the hill waiting to jump up and shout "Suprise" !!

I think the fog makes an amazing view...like this one! Very cool!
5 Dec 2008 2:23pm
Wow, Very nice. This one is gorgeous.

Absolutely brilliant shot grouse, but for the same thing that could have been a bull...!

beautiful shot! has a great air of mystery and intrigue here. nicely done : )

It looks bleak and miserable here - the fog has a nice effect, though.
5 Dec 2008 4:20pm
very nice shot, very atmospheric

Wonderful capture, not the best of days indeed but the fog engulfing the trees sets a nice mood, and the cow peeking over is so cool

I love everything about this image; the fog, the gnarly oak even the cow. It reminds me very much of my childhood days back in southern Poland. Fantastic capture, Grouser.

I think the fog adds a great deal to the appeal of this shot. The cow is an added bonus! Fine image.
5 Dec 2008 5:52pm
Another cracking shot grouse..!!Brilliant!!..I do find the cow distracting though,maybe it should have been left in the milking parlour.

What a unique combination for a photo. The tree is just beautiful.
5 Dec 2008 6:40pm
What a spectacular photo!
5 Dec 2008 7:42pm
This becomes such a charming image with the cow in view. You have worked that fog to perfection. Love this one.
5 Dec 2008 8:34pm
Gosh, I haven't seen a thick fog like that for ages! Perfectly timed shot, with the ole cow:-)

The scene is simple but has a pleasant charm about it. The tree has great character and the cow adds a worthwhile touch of life. The mist of course is great too adding a soft atmospheric background. I like it!

excellent capture here Grouser! fantastic mysterious mood and the tree looks quite eerie and has a lot of character...
6 Dec 2008 1:57pm
I love these winter photos grouser!

I love it! The cow is what really makes this photo shine, in my humble opinion. You live near an iron age fortress? One of my favorite places in the world is the remains of an iron age fort outside Swindon -- Barbary Castle. The earthworks are intact, so you can see where the walls used to be and imagine the life inside those walls.
