Leading lines and power lines

Or is it “lead-in” lines? Or does it matter, both seem to be correct anyway?

This was taken while out on a walk about a year ago and has just been re-scanned on my Plustek 8100. The colours look far better and much more natural now, as does the sharpness of the image (albeit the focus is more on the barley than the distant pylons).

Anyway, it’s quite a nice image, I think.

Across a muddy field

I don’t think I’m back up to daily posting yet, but here’s an odd shot just to stop the blog going too dry.

Winter field

This was taken back in January on a walk where I wish I’d worn some Wellies – although the ground looks crisp and frozen, the snow was in melt and my feet were sinking up to the ankles in places.

Looks familiar..

Yeah, that’s because it was taken in the same field, on the same day as the shot I posted on 2 Feb. It’s maybe not as nice a shot, but it still works pretty well thanks to the clouds and the curve of the path I think.

Paths and powerlines

Although it doesn’t look it in the shot, this path was coated in a slippery layer of heavy mud, which meant my shoes and the cuffs of my jeans were filthy by the time I got to the end.

I think the photo made it worthwhile though. 🙂

After a fruitless walk

This photo was taken a stones throw from the one in yesterday’s post (I was stood beside the house in this picture when I took that one).

I’d intended to follow some of the footpaths and go on a nice walk, but it was quickly curtailed when, at the bottom of the hill where I took this shot, it became apparent that the route was impassable thanks to field covered in about 8 inches of wet mud churned up by tractors. Maybe if I’d been wearing wellies I’d have given it a try, but not with the shoes I had on sadly. So I walked back up the hill and took this on the way.

Softer than it looks

This field looks hard and frost-bitten. It wasn’t – there were times when my feet literally sank completely in the thick wet mud of the footpath that runs along the bottom edge (and where all the meltwater was draining).
