Afternoon Stroll.

By Niknut
I'd walked up this path, & turned to close a gate, & saw this scene behind me......I'd had my back to it, & almost missed it !!!

Late afternoon, with the sun low in the sky......taken mid-December last.........

What a tremendous response to 'So Be It' !!!.......many thanks to everyone for all the great comments & votes, with special
thanks to Lin, Ian, Carol & Annette for the UA's............all very much appreciated !!!!!!!!.Smile

What a great sky giving you light and shade to shape the contours of the scene.
Good lead in and love how the light hits the path, grass and bracken.
An image which grows on you the more you look at it.

They always say we should look up so as not to miss a photo opp, but this proves you have to look everywhere, Keith.
Such magnificent, powerful light you have captured here. Moody and brooding, yet also the promise of lighter times. An image of contrasts.

24 Jan 2013 8:57PM
now i really like this, i have a 18-55 kit lens and to be honest have never used it,

A great shot. I like the light that you've used as a lead in on the road. It draws the eye into the photo. I see you've used a 18-55 lens. I've heard a lot of talk dismissing kit lenses. It shows what you can do with one.
Thanks for sharing.
