Looking at the grove of trees on Common Moor – there is more context here: 1 .  Sitting relatively low down in the car, I was able to look through these grasses towards the grove of trees.  The fine, pale, elongated specks in the image, best seen when it is enlarged, are falling raindrops – the shutter speed was 1/320th second.

Technique: Z 6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 6400 ISO; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Standard v2 profile; Chasey’s Drove, on Common Moor north of Glastonbury, on the Somerset Levels; 19 July 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.

    That’s just lovely and so much the better for being enlarged. I love the detail in the grass flowers and the lovely soft out of focus green beyond the trees. I didn’t see the needle-like rain at first but then it appeared!

    This bears a resemblance to the black and white a few posts ago….the same feeling of intimacy and space beyond. Beautiful.

      Well, two things. First, it IS the same copse of low trees as the photo in the previous post you refer to, just looking at it in a different way – in colour and with the foreground grass in focus – using a long telephoto close in, with the resultant narrow depth of field.

      Haha! and second, your’s is the first comment here >>> I have a feeling that others don’t quite know what to make of or say about this shot >>> so well done for getting stuck in!!! I’m very glad that you find it beautiful – when it appeared like this in my camera’s electronic viewfinder I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. A


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