Many thanks to everyone who stopped by to comment and vote on yesterday's offering. It did Iis doing??) better than hoped for.
Today's sacrificial lamb was shot a couple of weekends ago, not far from where I live, during a pleasant Sunday afternoon stroll. I've been trying to get some shots of this for quite a while, and finally managed to get one or two, albeit at the wrong time of day/year/life...
A bright and largely featureless sky and the gnarly shape of this ancient (and possibly dead) oak tree prompted the mono conversion, which I'd secretly always intended for this subject, anyway!
Original RAW processed in colour followed by a 3x2 crop for composition followed by channel mixer and selective contrast massaging, for those interested in such witterings.
Having now scouted the territory, I'm sure I'll revisit again and again as conditions, light etc change.
It has a stark beauty to it that I like and hope you do too.
No doubt it will be plumbing the depths of digital obscurity before too long...Ah, wel...
Thanks for stopping by.
