ARCHIVE 455 – CATTLE BESIDE THE NORTH DRAIN (MONO)

 

 


.

A misty morning on the Somerset Levels, looking east along the North Drain, on Tealham Moor.  A calm scene, with the softest of light breezes, and no other sounds except the soft shuffling and snorting of a small group of cattle that have come down to the water’s edge to drink.

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.

    The mist makes the mood all the more mooving.

    The tones you have chosen make this look like something out of Hardy’s time, a bucolic scene. Perhaps Rosie is nearby with her Cider.

      Thank you, Andrew, and especially so for the mention of Hardy – I have had a great interest in Anglo Saxon history, and am very much a creature of Wessex.

      AND AND AND!!! >>> you mention Cider with Rosie too, which took place not far north of here, a simply wonderful book! Thank you!!! 🙂
