The stark, autumnal skeleton of our garden’s towering Hazel; 18 Nov 2013.

Looking towards the bottom of the garden with an extreme wide angle lens.   Just a few of this Hazel’s leaves are still attached, while the rest carpet the ground. 

Just visible off at centre right is our neighbours’ fence, while at upper left are the silhouetted limbs and trunk of one of the garden’s two, naturally sown Oaks.

There are other, rather different, images of this Hazel here and here.

D800 with 12-24 Sigma at 12mm; 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Grainy Portrait EV Neutral preset, and with some restoration of original colour.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Interesting perspective and I really like the somewhat de-saturated colors. Just a bit spooky!

      Thanks, Gary! As to the colours, I’ve forgotten exactly what I did here, but I think the greens are restored in SEP2 and, looking at the shot, I think I might have used a copper tone.

      Spooky, eh? Well think of this – if this picture had been taken with the D800 on a tripod, or a la Bolstad with the D800 hanging from a branch … well then down there … somewhere in those murky shadows … might be lurking … ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
