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.

    It’s simply transcendent, Adrian. I don’t think more can be said. You are making some beautiful work this year! 🙂

      Thank you, my friend, but had to google transcendent! Thank you: yes, photographically things seem to be moving forward, I seem to be in the right mindset.

      And as to why, three things come to mind. The two camera (X-T2 + Z 6) approach to the Levels works very well. The Z 6 is a very impressive creative tool. And the Z 6 has let me get back to (a newer version of) the 70-300 Nikkor I was married to – but with a 70-450 range. A 🙂

    Oh, that is lovely. It’s those little faint soft touches of green amidst the pink and purple that do it for me 🙂 What a dream!

    Exquisite… Especially the slight hint of purple in the fog that lightly flows into leaves and grasses.

      Yes, absolutely, Lord of the Rings country >>> which actually is not too far from the truth, as the Levels had an important Anglo-Saxon presence, they had a palace not far from here, Tolkien was a medieval scholar, and the Saxon lords gave gold rings to their favoured nobles – a period of history that I find fascinating.

        Have you read the Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan. You might enjoy them. Fantasy with a bit of humor thrown in. Humans, elves, dwarves, and other creatures. His books should be read in the order published, not in the chronology of the world Sullivan has created. 🙂

  9. Really fine shot; the ‘soft gap’ and the smooth light. But why on earth do you get all the fog! 🙂 Cheers for the weekend!

      Thank you, Harrie! Well, the Levels can be damp and misty any time – perhaps as the Polders can too – but the year is moving on, my friend >>> and I’m looking forward to the colours and mists of autumn! All the best to you for the weekend too!!! A 🙂
