This shot of the North York Moors National Park was taken just above Goathland Station recently.

There wasn't lots of Heather around to include in a composition but I quite liked these clumps of grass and I thought they would help with the foreground.

I composed this shot and waited for the sun to sink towards the horizon on my right.

It was a little bit breezy so I increased the ISO to 400 so the grasses didn't show any movement.

The sky was quite uninteresting but luckily these clouds moved into the frame and caught the last of the evening light just at the right time.

A few minutes later the sun disappeared and the foreground lost all of its photographic appeal.

It is restful on the eye.


I like everything about this image, Lee. Excellent composition, attractive hues and a v. strong sky.


Hi Lee,
You have a great p/f that deserves more recognition. Some really good landscapes but this one doesn't have that 'wow' factor and I think it's because the foreground is in two distinct halves. It doesn't have the strength of composition that your other landscapes have.
I do like the colour of the heather linking with the cloud colour, and the whole image constrained by the vignetting.

And I do like your descriptions of your thought processes in taking your images.
