    Nice shot Martin.

    Great tonality and glow from the backlighting.

    That's very elegant. You must be a very lucky man to capture the fronds when they were not moving.

    I can't remember who said it first - "the more I practise, the luckier I get...." Nice image, thanks for posting.

    Martin,
    Picking the right day and time is the essence of photography. I've found that no matter how still the air seems to be, getting out a large format camera is the cue for the weather gods to send a gentle breeze. If only the Ancient Mariner had had one...
    Well done for taking advantage of the conditions. It's much more than a simple record.

    It was a golfer who said the line, but I know little of golf. If I feel the urge to carry a great clumsy bag around, I already have one. And in LF, we don't have to buy everybody in the clubhouse a drink if we're successful. If we did, Martin would be bankrupt.
