Blue lane
The view southwards down East Water Lane; 7 Aug 2014.

This little, dead end lane has re-invented itself or, put more simply, in language perhaps from an age now past, it has changed.  For no longer is it a slim, tarmac strip leading away southwards from beneath my feet, but rather an abrupt wall, blank, sheer and beset by flickering blue shadows, slicing across the Mendips’ smooth and sober slopes.

D800 with 12-24 Sigma at 12mm; 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Silhouette EV +0.5 preset, adding a split tone, and rotating by 90 degrees anticlockwise.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Intriguing is the word, me thinks! Certainly made me look several times to decipher
    what I thought I saw.


  2. Definitely, a wall. Clever, Adrian, and very effective! 🙂


  3. I thought it was a wall til I saw your feet. Then I realized what was going on. Cool! 😉 xxx

    Leaving your feet in was a bit tantalising Adrian. I want to see your wall, and easily can. It’s a great shot, but I keep turning my head on one side to witness the path again. I’ve just taken some Ibuprofen for my stiff neck, so don’t worry. 🙂 I’ve had the bad neck since last night, so can’t blame you.

      Oh don’t worry, Dave, give credit where credit’s due – I’ve always wanted to be a pain in the neck really, a life choice I suppose …

      And I’m glad you can see the wall! >>> thank you, and I hope you’re both well. Adrian 🙂


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