Now we are talking, just look at that splendid view just begging for walkerssmile
Love the shadow from the gate, as well as the compositionsmile
blackdog: Thank you Tracy - it was a beautiful day for walking (and photographs) ;o)
It was a little while before I noticed the second house.

do you remember how they aways used to say you should have gates open in pictures or they were a barrier to looking further into it. What a load of old cobblers that is.

I like this Mike
blackdog: Nevr even thought of opening the gate Bill. It was the strong shadow from the gate that had me reaching for the camera ;o) Glad you liked it ;o)
Nice white house. Wordsworth didn't like them you know. Too obtrusive!
blackdog: We he was a bit of a misery ;o) I feel the same about caravans of any colour ;o)

A wonderful light-and-shadow-play, and the white- lightened manor house looks like a fairy tale castle where perhaps one of my three wishes will be fulfilled if I' m allowed to open the gate? 'Weatherlam' seems to be the name of a place in poetical Cumberland?
blackdog: Oh tou are certainly allowed to open the gate wink I wonder which of your three wishes will be fulfilled? Weatherlam is the name of the hill right of centre. All the hills in the Lake District seem to have really poetical names - they certainly enchant me ;o)
A wonderful composition Mike. I love the light/shadow play!
blackdog: Thanks Richard ;o)
Fabulous view ... My only reservation is that the white house is perhaps too white ... It may have been your focus but to me the landscape is the protagonist.
richard
blackdog: The house was my focus (punctum) as I feel it "activates" the landscape around. Will have to agree to differ on this one Richard.
Excellent BW processing, love the dark contrasts and lighting.
blackdog: Thank you John - it certainly has the full range of tones. ;o)

As fine a view as you could wish for, plus not a hint of rain - why is it always raining when I go there?! I disagree with Richard - the white house is the whole point of the shot and really lifts it - it would just be another standard lakeland view otherwise.
Ingrid
blackdog: Thanks Ingrid, I agree entirely. As for the rain - without we wouldn't have the lakes ;o) You just have to be prepared to walk in the rain and thank ones lucky stars when it is a beautiful day like this one ;o)
