SOMERSET LEVELS 351 – QUEEN’S SEDGE MOOR, MORNING LIGHT (MONO)

 

 


.
Morning light on Queen’s Sedge Moor, with the higher, more thickly wooded ground around Launcherley rising in the background.

This picture, well, this picture …  It was a beautiful place on a fine morning and it reminds me of being there, but I just don’t have any deep feelings about it.  To me its getting over a little bit too much towards the picturesque – it could be a postcard.

Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  1. I accept your critique, but I get a nice feeling for this scene anyway. A lot has to do with that light.

    I like this very much. It kind of encapsulates feelings of a pleasant temperate day in the English countryside; a sort of montage of many different days out wandering about 🙂

  4. I think it’s the darks and the lights that make it so interesting. Postcard? Maybe but still – you got that artist’s eye. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  5. I took a closer look. More forest and meadow, not clouds. But they sort of look like distant clouds.

  6. It is a nice picture. Your own critique is fascinating. I see an interesting potential crop in the upper portion of the picture where two rows of trees in parallel form sort of a wave with fascinating clouds behind them.

      Oh, you know, I have these thoughts >>> and, seeing no reason not to be honest (try not to drown in the double negative!), I plaster them down on the blog >>> but, looking at this again now, I’m still getting the same feelings, so it wasn’t a momentary mental blip! Somehow, I just don’t feel that the picture contains a lot >>> but, then again, one thing about blogging is that its not just a receptacle for our best images, a whole range should be included >>> and several times I’ve posted pictures I’m really not sure about which have ended up being appreciated. C’est la vie! A 🙂
