Solitary Rock

By MarkT  
This was taken at Portland in Dorset on my first epz meet. I was down there on my ‘summer’ holiday. Maddie arranged the meet but unfortunately couldn’t make it in the end Sad so I met up with Mike Gray. While we were down there we also came across another epz member David Entrican who had travelled from Devon. Had a enjoyable evening down there, so thanks Mike, David and Maddie Wink

A different view of this rock, which makes for a pleasant change. Well processed, and I do like the colours and textures.

Not normally keen on HDR but this is subtle enough to work really well. It's helped alot by great composition and sky.

So why wasn't I invited then?

Just for that I'm going to say it would look better in mono. Tongue

Fantastic light and the foreground and the rock itself makes me think of a huge chunk of cinder toffee!!

Congrats on your HC as well.
