The Colour Red

The UK is in the depths of a deep freeze. The landscape is drained of colour and the skies are leaden. In the centre of our village, two iconic objects, iced with snow, stand out amid this bleak landscape. Bright beacons of hope.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Got to love the old post and phone boxes, that red is indeed an icon

  3. Red looks more ‘red’ against a snow background, doesn’t it.!

  4. The deep freeze has spread all the way to Toronto too 😦 Love these red mailboxes & phone booths. They do brighten up a dull day.

  5. Love the red- it stands out so nicely!
