MENDIP HILLS 41 – LANDSCAPES FOR A DEAD WIFE 2 (MONO)

 

 

Storm, rain, clouds

I’m remembering my dead wife, and photographing a place we shared together long ago: you can find the full context in the first part of this series, here .

Road, speed, darkness

.

Writhing trees, rain, shadow

If you would like to see enlarged versions of these pictures, click onto each one to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to further enlarge it: recommended.

Technique: all pictures were taken with a Fujifilm X-T2 camera and 55-200 Fujinon lens.  All were processed in Lightroom, and then converted to mono with Silver Efex Pro 2.  On the edge of Priddy Mineries Nature Reserve, east of Priddy, on the top of the Mendip Hills, Somerset; 20 Sept 2018.

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.

    Like the painful phrase, “dead wife” you made no effort to pretty these up. That’s refreshing. They make a powerful presentation, one many people, myself included of course, can learn from.

      Yes, “dead wife” is a painful phrase, and I wondered if some might find it objectionable. But, two thoughts. First, I’m a tell it like it is realist; and two, this blog is a part of me and I am writing it for me – it might lose something, maybe, if I started writing it to try and please the (extremely valued) readership/subscribers. If you can learn from this post, my friend, then that’s good – thank you for your thoughtful words. A

  3. Thanks for sharing prt2, my friend. The first shot, viewed full screen, really moves me. It’s the soft glow of light, shining through the dark, partly unsharp tree silhouette, that lifts the shot up to a melancholic sparkling… Brilliant!

      Thanks, Harrie! I know exactly what you mean about the first shot, it gets to me too. The final part, part 3, will be out on Friday. Thank you again for all your enthusiasm about these images. A 🙂

  4. impressing images with such a sad background.
    There is something hybrid in this images. A dynamic on the one side and something that stands still on the other… …like you would combine two layers of different features to one image.
    Best wishes to you, Adrian.
