Captured last month during a photoshoot with my two elder brothers Joe & Edwin.

Some tweaks & enhancements were applied in PS to add the desired atmosphere to the scene. In fact, the overall lighting and mood seem to have flung an eerie cast to this countryside hideaway ... ergo the title to the frame.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Wish you all a happy week ahead ... it's my week off and I shall be running around the island with my gear Smile !!

Cheers
Bert

Enjoy your week off and bring back lots of shots. I too am going off, in my case for two weeks in Newfoundland. Will be touring so hoping for lots of good shot opportunities!
