Glastonbury Tor, seen from Tadham Moor; the Somerset Levels; 25 Oct 2011.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 200 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.

Not as menacing of course, and quite wrong topography, but still that irresistible, hypnotic attraction. A
