Spring is slowly making its presence felt, but there remains a strong disconnect in the landscape. We have daylight that stretches way beyond 8pm, the overall quality of light tells us it is mid April, and yet trees and hedgerows remain stubbornly barren. None of our fruit trees show show any sign of bud or blossom. It just doesn’t seem right.
I walked one of my familiar walks around the edge of our village yesterday in sunshine and failed to find a single field that had evidence of a crop growing. But armed with a camera I was determined to return home with something worthwhile and eventually found it.
The two images today are of a long fence line enclosing paddocks for horses. I was attracted by the long shadows thrown on the grass.
Processing was in Photoshop and then in Topaz B&W Effects which I am slowly getting used to using and certainly has the capacity to add drama to B&W.
