SOMERSET LEVELS 194 – RIVER BANK

 

 

River bank

Along the bank of a small rhyne, on Tadham Moor, south of Wedmore; 30 Oct 2014.

I value the vegetation on the bank of this little waterway for the realism and colour it injects into the composition. 

Moving to the right, however, as my eyes do as they scan this picture, all detail in the backdrop is lost, and the image veers increasingly towards the Minimal and the abstract.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 800 ISO; Color Efex Pro 4, adding the look of Fuji Superia 1600 colour print film.

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.

    Beautiful, Adrian. Love the relaxing colour palette, and the composition. Reminds me of a boat’s oar.

      M, I can see what you mean about an oar – you’re very right. Thanks for your good words. I’m a bit down at the moment – mum in law has died suddenly, and we are having to have a new roof, which is not as smooth a process as it might have been. Thanks again. A

        I’m very sorry to hear about your mum in law, Adrian. My thoughts go out to you, your wife, and your family.

        Take care my friend.

          Thank you, M! Ha! >>> and I’ve just been told of the death of a former workmate – very sad, and not old either – she and I retired at just about the same time. I shall have some beer this afternoon and think of her – and then my mother in law’s funeral is tomorrow. Dark days, but we push through them … A
