Looking For Space On Wenlock’s Windmill Hill

100_7821 - Copy

This month the photo challenge at PerelincolorsTech of the Month is to compose shots that make good use of empty space. So here are some views of Windmill Hill, near my house – some recent, some taken earlier in the year. I thought that by having big skies in the background, or a large expanse of meadow in the foreground, and also by shooting downhill or lying down, it would create both scale and a touch of drama. Also it was an attempt to add interest to a scene that, though pleasing in itself, could not in any way be described as spectacular. And finally I was trying to capture a sense of something special about a place that I am perhaps overly familiar with. See what you think.

  1. They’re all really good , especially the couple with the dog. In the first the windmill us too far to the right for my eye, I’d like in a bit further in or cropped out. Just an opinion and I know nothing!

  2. I think the first shot, and the last, especially captured something special about a place that is very familiar to you. It’s a beautiful place, and I think you managed to capture some of the magic!

    1. Ah now, isn’t this one of the best bits about blogging – taking like-minded souls to one’s special places? I’m so glad you are back. Responding to your challenges, or simply seeing how others respond, really makes blogging a pleasure, and altogether more meaningful 🙂
