The Angle Of The Dangle

By woolybill1
Another from our grand day out with John Denman. This is the side of an old railway truck - turned - henhouse in a deserted farmyard beside the Pennine Way.

Mrswoolybill posted a shot of the same set-up earlier; unusually she moved closer in than I. If you have forgotten, it is Dedicated]]Dedicated To The RAS[/link].
44mm, 1/60th sec. @ f9, ISO 200

Nice grung shot with good angles. I would have boosted the saturation.

There is so much to this image, the chain, textures, angles and colours all pulled together to create this cracking image. A few hours could soon be lost looking around this old truck, it must contain hundreds of images for Mick to exploit.

Plenty of colour and saturation on the metal work, so the lighter wood makes a fine contrast.

The 'angle of the dangle' has a totally different meaning down here Bill but I think that overall the effect is the same.
Great texture detail.

Lines in every direction and a great mix of flaking paint, rust, grain and textures; still manages to look fairly sturdy though
