December 7 and at noon we had sun and 12 degree warmth: a spring day in winter. Graham and I headed out over the fields and came back down the old railway line. He strode off ahead while I stopped here to take this photo. It is for my U.S. Buffalo chum, Kathy. She and Jack come each year like swallows to spend the summer in Wenlock, away from Buffalo’s heavy heat. This is the walk she often walks with me, and we always stop at this fence, lean awhile, churn over world events, sometimes rant a little. And then at last simply look, taking in the view – the ever-changing unchanging landscape. (At least for now).

Now that’s one pretty view and one great photo. Love the silhouetted fence in the foreground.
Thanks, Jude. I always dither at this point – shall I include the fence or shoot over the fence. I usually do both of course 🙂
In this case I think the fence adds a lot to the photo – I like the way it follows the curve of the field. If it didn’t do that it might jar, instead it makes a great frame. As do the leaves on the right. What I might do is to crop the left-hand side to remove those twiggy bits as they are a little distracting, but on the whole I think the composition is excellent. And the colours and light are beautifully clear.
I second your comments, Jude….
Thanks for the tips, Jude. I’ll give it a tidy before I use it again.
Only my opinion Tish, it may not improve it at all.
Always good to think about things with fresh eyes.
Great place to rest awhile, Tish!
It truly is, Sue.
Long may it stay the same.
Such a wonderful view! I doubt you’d find a better place to stop, chat, and just observe.
One might say a Buffalo Spring-Field?
