A dark, wet morning on the Somerset Levels, looking back up the road to the village of Godney, on the horizon.Β 

On the left, the stump of a heavily pollarded Willow, crowned by a few new leaves but close to collapse.

You can find out more about pollarding trees, and about the Somerset Levels too, here .

Technique: X-T2 with 10-24 Fujinon lens at 15mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Lightroom, starting at the B&W 03 profile; Godney Road, looking north towards the village of Godney, northwest of Glastonbury, on the Somerset Levels; 14 June 2019.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

      Thank you! This quite compact, ultra wide angle Fuji zoom is coming in very handy, using it alongside the 70-300 Nikkor really increases photographic opportunities. A

  2. I like the way the crooked willow balances the road; fine in B&W.

      Thank you, Harrie >>> yes, as you say, the balance >>> and also the strong V of the field coming in from the left and almost meeting the road at its vanishing point – and the tree cuts right across this V. A πŸ™‚
