Ran out of time for this challenge and then came down with a bit of a cold when I was planning to take a few shots from the hill behind my house so I had to think quickly...

Woke up to a misty morning and thought I better get out there and get something for my TPL team as I was about to dash out while the house was sleeping, my daughter woke up so I decided to take her to a stream a couple of hundred meters from my house. The mist was think around the slow moving stream which wa smy intended type of shot but then I saw some Hadedas and asked my daughter if she wanted to run and catch them. Being 2 and half she wants to do everything even if it is not possible so she set off after them and this was one of a burst of shots I took. sentimental to me but not a very typical landscape shot.

anyway the wife loved it (obviously) and my Team liked it - so I entered it... and so far it is actually doing ok. Votes: 69

7 from me an d I LOVE the shot. Like some other commenters, I felt it was more about the child than the landscape, but it really is a delight.

What a wonderful photo of a child! Makes me feel like one again... chasing after the birds in the beautiful fog.

Unfortunately, this is a landscape challenge... not a BW image challenge, so I don't know what the voters will think about it all.

I would LOVE this in a FS!

Lovely shot and fitting title. Might get hammered as not entirely in the landscape frame of what everybody is shooting and posting.
