Hillside

I feel I am learning quite a bit from the Flash of Red challenge. It's a month of b&w except for an optional flash of red on 14 February.

The things I thought would work well don't necessarily, but clouds especially can be quite dramatic. This shot is not as clear as I'd have liked but it was a throwaway and the results were better than the church I had been trying to photograph. Think I may have to give up with churches - tried to take one near the village yesterday afternoon and managed to embed my car firmly in the mud. The nearby farmer kindly towed me out with his tractor ...
I quite like this! Nice contrast

This is really great! I love the slanting foreground and the opposite slant of the hillside and the dramatic shafts of light. Lucky there was a farmer around the day before or you might still be up there!

My goodness, I didn't think you could get better than your beach shots but this is an absolute cracker

Looks good in b&w, the rays and clouds are great! Glad you didn't get stuck in the mud for too long.

Looks great I'm B&W but I suspect it would also look good in colour as well. The composition with the tree rolling hills and sky are stunning :) fav

That works superbly well, I am really enjoying your B&W shots this month. Just a delight.

Well, this one really works. Love those clouds.
posted February 7th, 2018  
I know what you mean about some things working and others not. I find the same thing.
This really works well with all the layers of clouds, hills, and mist. Well done!

FB - I think this is just so good - it really has that feeling to it that Ann was talking about. It's not just a picture of paddocks, clouds etc. However, it must have been a bit embarrassing to be towed out LOL. :)

I love a lone tree shot, they always make such moody images. This is sunning. And those clouds and light rays are just perfect. Big fav 👍👍

Wow....beautiful. Fav

Love this Felicity ... like the layers and textures created by the clouds and the landscape ... I know what you mean about churches and mud!!! Every year our little school performs the nativity in the local church ... and we always have to have a tractor on hand to pull the parents cars out of the mud on the car park! Perhaps next time I'll take my camera and get an image :)

Awesome moody shot with the lone tree silhouetted. Love the layers. Congrats on being selected a finalist for the first landscape with it! Good luck!
