Approaching Monmouth, Wales. This was taken during the final stretch of a 20 mile walk. Amazing there's no camera shake, as I was on my last legs at this point.

Amazing! October 28, 2009, 05:46 PM
Is this real? Really good composition, I think. Street going leftwards and then there is also a smaller version of the "round" tree on the left :)

Thanks for the comments all =)

Yes, Berlinerstrasse, it's real! I've toned the image, but the best work is done by the beautiful, soft afternoon light. Great time for shooting and this was too good to pass up. October 28, 2009, 08:46 PM
So, in autmn it's ok to take pictures in the afternoon? I read that the light at afternoon was a bit "hard", but probably that's only true for summer? Maybe it's also different in GB compared to Germany.

Yes, I'd agree that was the case.. Some of my earlier photos take in Calabria, Italy you can see the harsh effects of the sun. Had to work around it there, but this was just perfect shooting conditions.

That one looks really good. I like the overall smoothness. Is it fog coming up from the left side?
Mark Andrews October 29, 2009, 11:23 PM
@crazyrayman Thank you =) No fog, just an afternoon haze across the horizon and I've also recovered some of the highlights too.
