Looking south across Tadham Moor, in the cold dreariness of winter; 20 Jan 2008.

A field gate with short spans of wooden fencing on either side stands up above the floods: the rest of this field is bounded by only by water-filled ditches which are now totally submerged.

White objects at upper left are a herd of swans – in their element!

Slight convex bowing of the horizon is due to my pointing the wide angle lens downwards to include the near foreground.

F6 with 24-85 Nikkor at 24mm; polariser; Fuji Provia 400X colour slide, rated at 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Landscape preset.

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. Reminds me of the floods a couple of years ago.

    Very good, I seem to recognise that gate from all the TV coverage during the floods. Well shot and I like the colour palette.

  3. I wondered about the bowing of the horizon. Perfect ‘narration’ as always. I like this place. There’s something about the open space, wind, water, solitude that appeals to me. Frame worthy. ❤️ ATP XXX ❤️
