ARCHIVE 445 – EARLY MORNING LIGHT ALONG TRIPPS DROVE

 

 


.

Early morning light along Tripps Drove, Godney Moor, Somerset Levels; 26 Jul 2012.

I’ve been thinking about doing something more impressionist for sometime, and this early morning stroll along Tripps Drove brought wonderful light – but there were horseflies too so it wasn’t all beautiful going!  Gaussian blur provides the dreaminess.

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.

  4. Two feelings this photograph brings out in me: nostalgia, probably because the scene is out of season (at least for me in northern Ohio, USA) and because of the blur that makes it seem even more like a memory, and peace, not only because of the content but also for the elongated format. I think your foray into heavy processing paid off here, Adrian.

      Linda, thank you for these very thoughtful words, its so good to hear the deep feelings this picture evokes. I’m particularly interested to hear that the elongated format brings feelings of peace. Adrian 🙂

  5. Lovely indeed. It was my desire for more impressionistic images that led me to Lensbaby lenses. Specifically now my current love, the Velvet 56. Highly recommended. It is quite versatile in that as you stop it down it gets sharper. So it’s not all fuzz and games…..

      Surreal, that’s exactly the word, Matt, this is not reality (well, not unless I was all the better for some of the Electric Soup at the time, of course), this is simply one take on reality. I have to say that I really like this image but, equally, that I’m really glad that I didn’t see such a style as “the main road going forward”!!! This may be the only instance on which I’ve used Gaussian blur. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Haha! >>> not sure I’ve got any more, Gem, this was just a touch of whimsy 8 years ago!!! And as to staying safe and being well, I’m afraid the government here is not being as strict as it might be, such that social distancing is frequently simply not working. We will just have to be as careful as we can. ATP xxxXXX!!!
