Crystalline Beauty by Xerces Crystalline Beauty by Xerces
A couple enjoying a beautiful winters walk at dusk.

Taken in Erddig park, Wrexham in January, 2010 after a heavy snowfall. I've been looking through some of my old photos, and it was clearly something I should put up. I don't know who the couple are, but it looked such a romantic scene to me.
Cokin P 121 gradual ND filter used.

This is beautiful!

The couple is a cute little spark to it, even though the beauty is still good.

Amazing shot!

Not too long ago I would have envied the couple in the picture, and the picture in general for how absolutely beautiful it is. Now it makes me smile because I know how that couple feels. This truly is a beautiful shot. :heart: :D

the sky looks so beautiful! and the tree branches as well. i think i have an unhealthy obsession with tree branches up in the sky, mesmerizing like tiny labyrinths. <3

This was taken in Erddig? I love it there, the snow makes it look so different. Lovely composition, and the colours in the sky are so beautiful.

beautifull picture, with nice colors in the sky and the couple walking really makes it stand out. Only thing i would put my finger on is that a bit more light on the right side/couple, that would really help, but all in all a great photo :)
Im glad to see you submitting art again, I hope all is going well :hug:

Yeah- it does get a bit dark. There are trees on the bank on that side that seem to block out all the light at that time >.<
Very glad the couple make the pic :) Thank you!!

Aww...

It's beautiful, I admit. :D

I really like the way you've positioned the shot with them on the right and all.. makes it more balanced.

It's interesting how the trees are bent into all sorts of angles. The colours are fantastic, though, especially with the colours in the sky and the effect of the sun just after it has set... it has that feeling, anyway.

I like the way the place itself is in shadow, although there's just enough light to see everything, which is great.

Cool stuff. :nod:
