The Souls Dark Cottage

By WakentheDead  
“The soul's dark cottage, battered and decayed,
Lets in new light through chinks that time has made.
Stronger by weakness, wiser men become,
As they draw near to their eternal home.”
~ Edmund Waller~

I took this image from inside a car which was travelling down some windy country roads at about 60mph (don't worry I wasn't driving!)

I saw in the distance this fab house sitting in the middle of some lush green fields and as we got closer just had to snap a few shots, luckily I got a few good ones - this is the kind of place I want to move to when we move house (within the next couple of months hopefully). It's idyllic.

Taken near Brechin, Scotland.

Damn, I was going to commend you on the texture overlaying the image until I read that you'd taken it through a window! Wink
Great idea and the following treatment makes it look like an old photograph dug out of an old chest in someone's loft. Lovely.

Ps, I've had a nosey round your plant studies. Nice work, but I was too busy to leave a comment. I can't remember if I clicked them, I'll check and vote for them if they can stand up to my strict technical eye. No, not the right one, that's a glass one. That's why I keep winking, like this: -------> Wink
