ARCHIVE 355 – LOOKING SOUTHEAST FROM EAST WATER LANE (MONO)

 

 


.

Looking southeast from East Water Lane, on the Mendip Hills, Somerset; 7 Aug 2014.

The eastern side of the lane, with a line of Hawthorns rising above a dry stone wall of the local limestone.  In the distance, trees line the road that continues on eastwards towards the Hunters Lodge Inn, Green Ore, and the main highway that runs down the Mendips’ steep southern slopes into the tiny city of Wells.

Back beyond the nearest tree, to its left, several other low trees are faintly seen out in the field.

Technique: D800 with 12-24 Sigma lens at 12mm; 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Cool Tones 1 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.

    Although this is a ‘Cool tones’ mono, I can feel the heat of the day! Very nice, Adrian.

      Although this is a Cool Tones, that’s only the preset I started from – in most cases, the preset then receives much manual adjustment! I just choose a preset that looks alright, and then go on from there. Glad you like it – thank you! A 🙂

    This is fabulous Adrian – I really like the very dark center and all the light entering in the wings. Strong diagonals! There’s a sort of timeless quality, and it feels like it could be an old plein air sketch. Another noble tree, excellent!
