The Japanese landscape

By mrswoolybill
A traditional Japanese painting of a forested mountain side. Or a paint-splattered old transport container, now used as storage. You choose.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Imaginative. Have a thingy, that may be a user award, or might just be a coloured square...

Knowing you Moira, I'll go for the paint splattered container Wink
A splendid fairy tale image, which could be from a child's story book. Well spotted and processed.

Very cleaver Moira. It should be hanging in The Tate Modern.
Brilliant

Very good. The viewer creates the image. As my friend used to say, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder....Get it out with Optrex!'

Reminds me of Japanese cherry blossom time. Well spotted, and making a great image out of your find, Moira.

Wow, just back with the shopping, I managed to stop notifications on this so got quite a shock when I opened. Thanks everyone, and thanks to Ollie, Erica, John, Leo, Tony, Ian, Somnath, Tim and Roy for their UAs. I don't think I've missed anyone out...
I'm not deliberately trawling back for old stuff but I have a few images that stuck in my memory that I have revisited. A few more will appear over the next week or so - but then I should be solidly back to new stuff.

Quote:The viewer creates the image. As my friend used to say, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder....Get it out with Optrex!'

Love that, in both its component parts.

Really brilliant Moira. This could be many things. Even sheep entered my mind. Or a snowstorm in the orchard.
