Ovenden Rocks!

By ade_mcfade      
As anyone who's ever been to Ovenden Moor will tell you, it has a lot of odd rocks near the quarry end - so I thought I'd capture a few of them on top of the characteristic peaty terrain.

The light just catching the tops of the grass was a nice addition, and the compulsary wind turbines finish it off really.

The shot belies how cold it was - really was as cold as it gets!

Well, not actic of course, but bad for West Yorkshire in March

Perfect light under those clouds bud and a nice bit or turbine movement. Not so keen on the foreground though ... but that's just me. Works for me as a dramatic letterbox crop to just below the left grasses.

Very nice.
Like the way you've gone with the colours on this one and the contrast between the sky and the foreground.

Has that windswept feeling to this. I know how cold it can be Adrian, ask any ridgewalker. Beautiful tones and additional cloudscape makes this a exceptional image to view. Ron.

Yes, there is a lot to see in this one, and it all looks good. Yet it is not too busy. A very unusual landscape that is quite appealing.

Very nice shot, but don't you wonder what can motivate people (apart from money) to erect those monstrosities in such a beautiful landscape?
