Weathered Pump Room

By KingArthur
While strolling along the countryside lanes in Ghajn Tuffieha valley last weekend, I came across this weathered pump room which, given the prevailing thinly clouded overcast lighting, instantly caught my eye ..... a pump room with tons of character I chuckled to myself!

In composing the shot, I opted to include a touch of foreground vegetation leading up to the pump room, as also some vegetation atop the overlying terraced fields. A striking factor so characteristic of this valley is the rich red fertile soil typical of valleys in the Northern part of the Island, which I also included to compliment the weathering on the stone work of the pump room. To be honest I was quite pleased with the end result. Hope you find the shot to your liking, viewed large is recommended.

Thank you all for your clicks and comments on my previous posting "Leroy", all are well appreciated.

An excellent rural image, Joe - thoughtfully and very well composed.
Before I read the narrative, I thought that the soil looked wonderfully rich and fertile.

Great image, Arthur.
Perfectly composed with lovely light on the grasses & soil.Smile
