ARCHIVE 168 – ALTERNATIVE LANDSCAPE

Near the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe, Devon; 2 Oct 2007.

An alternative landscape, a scene a million miles distant from the “golden hours” of sunrise and set – and the graduated neutral density filters too – that are so beloved by ardent landscape photographers!  Ok, it has some foreground interest and it may have front to back sharpness for all I know, but even I must make some concessions to the genre …

It is a view that conveys the very minimum of information and pictorial delight.  A completely blank, blue sky above a kinked horizon, short grass with a few daisies and some yellowish patches – and The Pipe!

F6 with 70-300 Nikkor; Fuji Provia 400X colour slide rated at 1600 ISO.

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 think the plain shot is very refreshing sometimes! Keeping it real…

    Looks like landfill hill to me!! Please correct me if I am barking up the wrong tree! Mesmerizing photo by indeed the absence of any beautifying effects!

      No, nowhere near landfill, more like cliff top green sward! You may already know Ilfracombe; if not, I recommend it. Parts of it are quite tatty, which I find visually attractive – and the Landmark Theatre is attractive too. A

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…. Oh look, a man-made worm. 🙂
