Wonderful perspective - almost 3D and superb mono but what memories this place reminds me of!
We stayed here in a timeshare exchange years ago. Our car broke down en route and we had to get a van to take us
as it AA couldn't rescue us as it was a holiday weekend. There was me, my hubby, two children and granny!
The name of the village is bigger than the village itself.! When we eventually got the car repaired about four days later, we went to
Scarborough and ran out of petrol on the way home over the moors but since it mostly down hill we made back!!
Great image Alan.
Good grief, Kate... what a carry on!
Simply beautiful picture!
You have certainly capture the beauty of nature, love the soft lights coming from behind those trees, creates a nice halo effect.
Lord of the rings.. this is a remarkable b&w image.. surely can go inside any book about photography.. one thing is certain that it can not be bettered.. i love every element in it..
Beautiful light and mist. The distance looks a little odd. Is it on a hillside or is that water? It looks like it needs to be straightened. But then the f/g would be off.
love the range of `blacks'
Excellent mono image Alan, a bit of Ansell Adams here?
Quote: The distance looks a little odd. Is it on a hillside or is that water? It looks like it needs to be straightened
It does, Sandy, it's wonky. But I'm not particularly bothered... I'd lose too much image real estate if I straightened it, and I don't really think it detracts, the B/G isn't really the point of the image, after all. ( That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it )
Holmes and Moriarty could be locked in mortal combat somewhere in there...
Sandy has got there ahead of me. The foreground looks fine, the background looks wonky, and once you notice that it does kind of take over the image. Not sure if skewing would help - it's a good way of straightening without losing too much canvas, but it does change proportions.
The cliff looks plenty vertical enough to me, and having stood on top once many years ago I can assure you that viewpoint is as close to the edge as I would want to stand! This looks very different to that clammy mid-summer afternoon; and just observe the benefits of removing the colour : no heat haze, no flies, no gliders soaring overhead, no sound of lorries struggling up Sutton Bank en route for Scarborough. I can almost imagine myself in the heart of the Harz mts. pretending to be Goethe or even Caspar David Friedrich.
You'll always be windswept and interesting to me, Bill
just stunning Alan.
Wuthering Heights came to mind. Dark and moody. Make a great cover for it Alan.
What a wonderful play of light.
Now I am going mad, sure V2 was not there when I first looked, and your description has gone...
Any way, Very nice indeed....and I had noticed the wonky bit, but looking again I can get past it, doesnt look wonky at all now.
The guy in V2 must go.....knock him off, or shout "back a bit"
Ooops sorry Bill
OK We are both enjoying the laugh. Barking mad and wonderful.
Just lovely - wonky and straight - they are both amazing!
So dramatic and very impressive. Biblical.
Two excellent versions, Alan - that's not a latter day James Herriot looking back towards Thirsk in V2, is it?
This wonkyness must be contagious! Like it both ways, great mono landscape, Alan.
Alan, please can you put a warning on any steep views in future - it's taken me twenty minutes to recover from the vertigo and make this comment!
I'd love to give two votes - one for the 'before' and one for the 'after' (fancy having a victorian man in your back catalogue - didn't realise you were that old )
Ok, less of the cheek and back to best behaviour now (not sure I can keep that up for long though…) I agree that the treatment you have used here gives this a 'back in time' feel. It highlights the way the sun is catching the foliage, rocks and tree branches in the foreground, and removes any hint of modern artefacts from the background. The rocky outcrop does beg for a story - glad you and Bill have given it one Jacqui
Jacqui, I'm actually two days older than grass.
