So the family and I decided to get out today and start the new year as we mean to go on, that being more active and walking more. These are a few of the images I shot today on a foggy day up by Castle Coch woods, South Wales.

All Pentax K1, D FA 24-70mm and handheld.

Quick edit as on my Benq screen the opening image looked brighter but on my phone it looks dull so here's the image edited to be brighter:

1 and 4 are very cool for me, I'd maybe try to crop #4 to make it look a bit more 'spooky'.

Thanks Harris




Uploaded an image to Instagram and used a filter which looks cool

I need to recreate this filter in Photoshop

I'm not sure that they are, but I tend towards the B&W ones

A very nice, atmospheric set, Gareth. 1 (both versions), 4 and 5 are really great fog images - which I generally find difficult to render. The way in which the golden tree leaves stand out in 2 is is quite beautiful (and I prefer the uncropped version). And the silhouette in 3 is striking.

Beautiful and moody, these sum up this time of year to perfection.

Thanks all. Appreciate the kind words

Gutted there are no silver birch trees locally to me with leaves/branches similar to no. 2 as I think that'd look killer
