This landscape shot was actually a single exposure from a set which I expected to use as an HDR. The HDR image did no work and so this is a single exposure, hence the blown out highlights I the stream and treetops, but I still quite like the shot and don't feel that these areas distract from the image.
I wanted the photograph some dippers today and so sat in hiding for a while near a cluster of rocks which a dipper was quite likely to land on. However nearly an hour in some photographers started a shoot just behind me. During my wait for a dipper, a robin sat on a mossy log not too far away and so I got this shot.
