SOMERSET LEVELS 185 – THE BRIDGE OVER THE NORTH DRAIN (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 

The bridge over the North Drain
.
The bridge over the North Drain, on Tealham Moor; 30 Oct 2014.

The little bridge on Tealham Moor, with its guard rails hanging on for dear life.  The area is below sea level, this bridge is the “highest” thing around – and the little, single track roadway of Jack’s Drove hurries us on northwards towards the safety of the higher ground up ahead, the low hills of the Wedmore ridge. 

D700 with 12-24 Sigma at 12mm; 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Full Dynamic Harsh preset and selectively restoring 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.

    Bridges, Stairs, roads disappearing into nowhere, etc always full of symbolism and this one is no exception.

  2. Love the depth, the symmetry, the earthy colors. Beautiful, A. I think this might be one of my favorites. xxx ATP

    Love the symmetry in this, and the selective colouring.

      M, thank you very much! This picture is a little departure for me. There’s a slider in SEP2 that facilitates selective restoration of colour to mono images and, up until now, I’ve been in the habit of yanking it full over for maximum colour, but in this picture I’ve only gone part way and I like the pallid, washed out, unnatural colours that have resulted >>> it doesn’t look right and I like it that way! A 🙂

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