About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      I don’t keep notes of such things any more, but in this image it would have been for the brightest part of the sky, at top right. And I probably darkened the shadows yet more in Lightroom.

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