The Copse

A quick post today. Today’s image is the third in a series of images from my old Print Archive. To find out more about this series go to Categories in the Rt sidebar and click on Print Archive, or quicker still click here.

_DS75350I have no idea where or when exactly this was taken but it would be somewhere in Devon and around 40 years ago give or take two years.

I recall I liked the rather sinister clutch of trees that I saw up a rocky track. It required development in keeping with that feeling – so I used the most contrasty grade of paper and this was the result.

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 like the higher contrast you chose for this and the depth is extraordinary.

    Almost looks like something we’d see in an Alfred Hitchcock movie……very nice, Andy….you captured the mood very well.

    It is very nice and slightly sinister.
    I can’t help thinking that must very difficult soil to work. The roundness of the pebbles suggests an old alluvial terrace.

      Thanks for commenting. It’s so long ago to recall the detail – but this was in a relatively wild and high area that was not cultivated. I wonder whether the large pebbles were imported to make the track less muddy and easier to walk or drive a tractor up.

    Both tones and contrasts as well as the composition reminds me of landscapes seen by David Bailey. And I think there is a special quality to the analogue process. Very nice.
