Sunrise over Tadham Moor; 9 Jan 2015.

Totney Drove, single track and metalled, passes through a small group of tall willows that, as so frequently happens with such silhouettes, reminds me of an exploding artillery shell.

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’m way behind on reading posts Adrian and that means that I missed this great ‘battlefield’ shot. I see what you mean and I love it. The red sunrise plays a big part in generating that emotion.

    I’m not good at getting up for sunrises and the trouble is that it’s not going to get any easier this year. 🙂

    Very nice capture, Adrian. The image really speaks to my spirit. I love the composition and the emotion this image creates. It makes me feel that even though the darkness surrounds, there is the beautiful brightness of hope in the distance. My leg is finally healing to the point that I feel hopeful and things are starting to look bright again… thanks for all your encouragement, friend. 🙂

      Emily, thank you very much, I’m glad this lifts your spirit! Yes, there is some brightness in the distance, all is not dark. I’m very glad to hear that your leg is on the mend – please take things carefully, don’t overstretch its returning strengths. Adrian

  5. Great photo, in your typical style. I love the dark areas that leave a lot to the imagination of the viewer.

      Philip, thank you, I very much value your views. I’m glad the dark areas get to you; especially with this sort of shot, trying to show everything would be a distraction I think. Adrian

    Exploding shells are the Inn Thing these days, but you managed a much more agreeable, attractive, even desirable one.

      Paula, thank you! >>> but you will have to drag me (probably kicking and screaming) into the world of what is Inn and what is Out because, really, I don’t have a clue! But if I’m at the cutting edge, well, but oh my, its sharp out here … and what was that line from Apocalypse Now? … “a snail crawling along the edge of a straight razor” .. very appropriate, really.

      As I say, I may have been influenced by last year’s Remembrance, I don’t know, but I’ve looked at others of my Levels landscapes too and been struck by this interpretation – no explanation! Adrian

    That is a beautiful exposure Adrian. Two of my favourite subjects, winter trees and skies. I’m right there soaking it up!

      I’m glad you can, Sheldon, that’s reassuring – thank you! Why I should think such things I don’t know – was I a soldier on a battlefield in another life, or have I simply been watching too many war films or World War One remembrance programmes??? Who knows?! Adrian

      Constance, thank you very much! I see you’re excited to be living an expat life – I know the feeling, I was an expat myself many years ago although I’m back near where I grew up now. Thank you again. Adrian
