A winter tree

Trees have a beauty to them after autumn has stripped them of their leaves.

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.

Overarching power

This pylon had a dominant, imposing look about it stood on the ridge overlooking the road and valley, and I think the curve of the foreground road adds to the shot.

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).

Cobbled

I took a number of pictures on this street in Hull a couple of month’s back. This is the only medium format shot amongst them. I like the shot and the composition, but wish there had been a little more light – I had to open up the aperture to get the photo (a side-effect of my Mess-Ikonta having a slow / sticky shutter at speeds below 1/100 sec, which forces me to open it up in lower light, rather than dropping the shutter speed). As a result, the focus is a little soft in the foreground.
