Ghosts

By Fefe
Another from one of my trips to Monsal dale and Headstone Tunnel last summer. I still have quite a few of these that I have not uploaded before. Not sure if I have uploaded a mono of the tunnel before so here goes...... Please view large.

So pleased you liked my 'Lime & Lemon' image yesterday...Thank you!
Special thank you to David 'Imageryonly' for his ID of the plant 'Rhodiola Rosea' and to BobbyMS for the UA.

A place that I know well, though I may feel differently about walking through it after this!

Very ghostly Diane, and it is very spooky in there.......worse still if a child screams😱😱!!!!! You have truly captured that feeling really well.

Don't recall seeing a mono before of this, Diane, but then, I have trouble remembering back to last week... 😳 I love those 'ghosts', and the really low viewpoint must be lower than a snake's belly,,, 😃👍

A great image, Diane. Ditto on the curve....a terrific compositional element. I love the movement. How long is the tunnel?

Are you in a hole or laying on the ground Diane? It's a rather creepy place to be. But maybe they are friendly ghosts and will look after you. I love it.

Outstanding Diane ! The curved tunnel is an interesting subject and the ghostly figures are fascinating but it's the very low viewpoint that really makes it for me, it's a small child's eye view and more spooky as a result. Bravo !!!
David

PS : Top marks for effort - digging a hole to get lower is way beyond the call of duty.

The view point adds greatly to the excellent effect here, Diane.
Hope you managed to get back on your feet okay. Wink

Around a third of a mile Peter....just had a little help from google and Alexa .
I would have guessed at a quarter of a mile, so I want far off WinkGrin

I had actually put the camera on the ground on the black stones ( very carefully) at the edge and sat on the step at the edge of the wall so I could see the live view.
I had tried using my shoulder bag as a cushion to support the camera but that was giving a bit too much height and it made my beige bag sooty SadSad
I do not think my light blue denim will ever look the same again TongueTongueTongue

I'm a bit behind with my viewing but I'm I'm glad I caught this one Diane. A cracking shot. I think it's all been said but for me I am liking your low POV and the movement of your 'ghosts' and the curve of the tunnel takes you right through the image. Top shot!
