Last week we were back on Ivinghoe Beacon – one of our favourite places. The Beacon is a high point on the edge of the Chiltern Hills with the land spread out around and below us. There’s one particular field I have photographed several times before (click here for a reminder) from this vantage point but on this most recent occasion it was uninviting photographically.
Other things caught my eye including the recently shorn sheep that featured in my last post, and a broader view of farmland that was lit by a substantial break in the clouds. During processing I deliberately softened this image using Topaz Clean to produce a result that is reminiscent of a style of illustration that was in vogue a few decades ago.
