"Suprise View"

Add Comment

Good evening everyone.

"It's been a long winter" - this was the subject of the conversation between my friend Kel and I, we decided that due to resorting to photographing skulls and pieces of plastic we needed to get out more! Kel suggested a challenge:- we both had 7 days to produce an image and post this evening which symbolised the phrase "wide open space".

Here is my offer to the challenge, This is a new style for me (not hats or hard men in this one) - as I really wanted to push myself and produce something really beautiful. It's an image of a small piece of the Peak District called Suprise View taken from the top of the tor on Saturday afternoon as the storm clouds were gathering, I hope you like it.

If you get the chance please take a look at Kels image (Kel55)

Thanks for you support - as always very much appreciated.
Best Wishes - Heather

Excellent image - 'There is a Green Hill Far Away'! Can certainly see why it is called Surprise View. This new style definitely suits you!! Wink
Will also take a look at your friend's image.

fantastic landscape view, full marks on the wide and open... and more important scope from close to way beyond.
I wish I could produce something like this

Great shot Heather, and love the composition of the fence posts leading through the view to the valley and cloud formation. Very striking image for dull conditions. James Wink
