Another, more unusual view of Penshaw Monument, a popular subject to photographers in the North East, especially in the Sunderland area. Taken back in October as the grasses were turning from greens to golds. I thought this worked quite well in portrait orientation.

I hope those of you who have snow and ice are keeping safe and warm.

An interesting point of view with lovely grass tones. To my mind there's too much sky in this image and that takes attention from the real point of interest - the monument.

Quite amazing. I've never seen it, never thought of it like this - so tiny and so low down in the world.
I do find it a disappointing monument up close, not nearly as imposing as it looks from a distance.

The composition gives a enigmatic atmosphere to the photo. I would not sharpening so much.

Brilliant composition! Not just the perfect orientation but also the placement in the frame. I like how much sky you've included 'cos it gives the whole image an interesting sort of minimalism.

Seen this many times when travelling on the coach up to Scotland. A good different and unusual viewpoint here, Carol - looks like you were grovelling around in the grass! Wink
