A frosty, misty, autumn morning on the outskirts of the village.  A path, made by farm animals, passes across the fields of Church Farm – which, logically enough, is the farm next to the church.  There is a livestock-proof gate into the next field in the hedge in the distance and, on the right, one of the farm’s outbuildings.

A calm, simple scene, shot against the light.  The path leads my eye towards the distant gate, and the wall and the outbuilding (including the shallow tilt of its roof) are also pointing in that general direction.

This might look alright in black and white, but here are the muted colours of the cold and the mist, made more so by the film simulation.

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.

    Yes, all angles lead to the gate and, wherever I look in the photo, I’m drawn back to it. I like the gentle,frosty pastels very much. So inviting!


  3. Nice one, Adrian. I also liked reading your own analysis of the photo. And I’m glad you kept the muted colors.

      Thank you, Linda! Glad you enjoyed my analysis: I like to talk about my pictures, what I see in them. And although I often forget to use them, I think muted colours can often be a very powerful thing – more so than oversaturated colours, I think. A 🙂

    I love this and the way you’ve once again captured the atmosphere of a cold frosty Winter’s day in England. It reminds me of some of the places I used to walk in Wiltshire.

    I like it..simple, as it is.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
