I've seen abstract landscapes before, but never with a sheep included...
Good one. It is essentially an abstract for me (and would be even more so with the sky cropped off). Diagonal blocks and horizontal bands rising up through a vertical frame.
And then the sheep makes a cameo appearance, and brings it to life.

Thanks, Moira. I thought a lot about the sky~ cropped it out initially, but decided to keep it because I like the line of the fell. Besides which I didn't really want it to be an abstract. That particular location means a lot to me, and a purely abstract treatment seemed too detached. I think it works either way.
P.S. Maybe 'graphic' is a better word than 'abstract' in any case. An 'abstract,' strictly speaking, does not, by definition, represent any external reality, but refers only to itself. But I appreciate your point, and value your opinion as always.

Regards,

Alan

Superb composition.
I did look twice at the exif and wonder why you used 1600 ISO, but if the camera was already set I have my answer Smile
I am appreciating your work more and more.

I did this before I had a computer/photoshop Elements, and the camera was set to the "grainy film" setting, as I couldn't do any post-capture work myself back then. Wouldn't do it now~ have everything set flat, with a minus setting on contrast to help with highlights. Gives me what I want without the need to use RAW.
Thanks for your comments, Bill.

It's an interesting area, I regard abstract as referring to images where lines, shapes take precedence over explanation, context. Where we don't actually need to think of explanation or subject matter for the composition to work, it's only a question of how those lines fit into the frame.
Would rabbit on further but we have to go and load luggage into the car...

This reminds me so much of some old snaps of mine using film and wet printing. It has that timeless feel. It really needs that lone sheep for balance and interest and it's just in the right place. A beguiling image.
