PLAY Feb - Fuji 18mm f/2: Tread Carefully

On the 23rd February in this album I published a shot of the lake shore taken from under the north facing end of Paimpont Abbey. A couple of people mentioned that I should be careful not to fall in - in fact the most hazardous thing is the descent by this mud and wood rudimentary stairway. I liked the view looking back up.

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: for February it's the Fujinon 18mm f/2 on an APS-C sensor camera (today the Fuji X-Pro1) - the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera.

This is also for the Flash of Red 2017 challenge.

BoB I think!
Ouch! I'll say. Don't think I'd even try it at this stage of my life.

This looks rather like a scene from The Hobbit or some such setting.
February 28th, 2017  
I like your range of textures.
February 28th, 2017  
Excellent look back and just gorgeous on black, fav!

Great tones and clarity. I admire the way you can make a scene that really isn't much into a fabulous photo.

It does look precarious although on such terrain feet suddenly find their eyes!

Lovely image.
February 28th, 2017  
That could be painful if you went down on your rump.

@dkbarnett Thank you Delwyn, I think that's probably one of the nicest compliments that I've been paid for my photography. It's true that I do try to look for the extraordinary in the ordinariness that makes up much of our daily lives.

@joansmor Plenty of padding on my rump!
February 28th, 2017  
Fantastic shot. Love the differing textures and composition.

Great shot. That path is why I like to carry a monopod. Doubles as a walking staff.
February 28th, 2017  
if those steps could talk...
February 28th, 2017  
@sarasotab Good tip Robert... and I do have a monopod.
February 28th, 2017  
@jack4john I think that every time I go down them!
February 28th, 2017  
I love how those steps hug the wall and carry my eyes up.
