The entrance to a field, securely chained.  Some gates in this area are quite flimsily secured – sometimes only with thin rope –  but, in many areas of the country, rural crime, including stock rustling/butchering, is increasingly frequent.

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.

    A very strong image, Adrian – that chain really says “Chained” and the wood is beautiful behind it.

    Love the detail. The remnants of the ivy? stems look like trees. It could be a poster about protecting our woods: gerrrofff our trees 🙂

    Looks like an image from a fairy tale or something! I like it!!


  4. Excellent but weird shot; feels a bit medieval..

      Glad you find it weird – great stuff!!! – and medieval? >>> a living column in some Pagan cathedral deep in the Somerset wetlands perhaps??? …. a column in bondage perhaps??? …. 😉 …..


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