SOMERSET LEVELS 177 – THE VIEW TO THE NORTH ON TEALHAM MOOR (MONO)

 

 

The view to the north on Tealham Moor
.
The small tarmac lane of Jack’s Drove heads off northwards across the flats of Tealham Moor, towards Wedmore; 10 Apr 2014.

A water-filled ditch forms the boundary of the pastures to the right of the road, and trees (alders on the right) have been planted along the road’s low embankments, both to strengthen them and to show where the road is when it is flooded.  During last winter’s awful floods, which were far more severe to the south of here, the surface of this road stayed just above the surrounding waters – as can be seen in this photo.

D700 with 16-35 Nikkor at 16mm; 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the High Contrast Orange preset and adding a slight selenium tone.

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.

    I like that slight tilt of the trees! And the depth with cloud counterbalancing it!!

    Wow. It all came together for you here, my friend. I am so drawn into this that, if I could step into it, I might not be able to stop continuing into the mysterious beyond…

    That contrail, or is it a funny shaped cloud, is angled perfectly. The lane appears to be endless, a great example of the vanishing point.

  5. Great shot Adrian – I love the four ‘lines’ – road, verge, ditch and the vapour trail (or cloud). 🙂

      Lisa, thank you, glad you like it! Yes, its a vapour trail – if I can spell it ->>> serendipitous! So interesting to hear that your spring is just starting – of course I know and understand about the Earth’s orbit and inclination but, eschewing all that science, its still intriguing to think of the variations across our planet.

      Thanks for your good thoughts, Paula. In this particular shot, my own feelings are clear, for when on this simple little road, I am probably in my favourite place in this world. I talked about this recently with a selfie from the Magic Carpark – this is the road heading off north from there. Thank you again. Adrian
