    A new thread every week where you can post a shot for the week.

    It may be your favourite for any number of reasons, ie technically good, a favorite model, or even just because it's different to what you normally shoot.

    Add the story that goes with the picture if you like but it's not necessary. It's just an excuse to post a picture that you'd like to share.

    Feel free to ask for a critique if you like and comment on other shots if you wish.

    Last week's "Your Photo of the Week" thread is here.

    EG is your horizon skew in that, or is it just in my head?

    To be quite honest I don't know.. I can see what you're getting at, but in that shot there is no actual horizon, just cloud lines. I don't have any other photos from this perspective either, as this is a new lookout that they haven't actually finished building yet.

    I've tried levelling it to the low level clouds, they're the closest thing to 'straight' in the image.. Do you think it looks better?

    That'll be shot on his 1DX2 with 500mm F4 mk2, probably with 2x tele.

    So still trying to work out how to use the CV 10 5.6 properly. The flair resistance is pretty impressive!!!!

    Landscapes require me to get up early, and to drive long distances.. I don't do either :p
