In The Sticks

By Jasper87  
Back from 'Sticks' - a week dog sitting in North Norfolk. Looking after a 2 year old retriever is not very conducive to photography but this was a handheld 'snap' whilst she sat still for a couple of seconds. A foggy/misty and frosty walk in a back lane near Briston.

It might be misty and frosty but it has really added to an already atmospheric image and the mono suits it perfectly

A fabulous working of this image Dave but has to be viewed large to appreciate it. Personally, I love it!

Can't be too bad 'in the sticks' with scenes like this!
I was however expecting to see the dog when you said she sat still for a couple of seconds!!!

Not how one tends to think of Norfolk... usually they're broader.
Nice all the same though, and lovely tonal quality.

Bit late getting to the party, but it's the thought that counts. Wink

A good 'un - beautifully atmospheric, almost Gothic: I can just see the black carriage with the black-plumed, black, black horses coming round the far bend.

Superb picture, so evocative of a country lane. This has given me a lot to think about. I do a lot of photography of the English countryside, but have always stuck to using colour. This shows me what can be done with black and white and I will certainly start trying to use monochrome in the future. So for me, it is not only a great picture but truly inspirational.
