Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines.

The prompt gave me a bit of a challenge, while I know about leading lines I rarely seem to use them. Going back through my archives it appears I have never used them regularly.

Sorry, I wasn’t finished with my comment yet but my fingers pressed accidentally. What I was gonna say was. Wow, that was a long time ago when you were a student but seems very professional to me.

Thanks Tina. I suspect that it’s a bit like the rule of thirds, something you learn and then forget about until something in your subconscious taps you on the forehead.

Thanks. I say that I’m going to do studied photography every year but seem to do less each year. Part of the problem is that with the capabilities of modern cameras you don’t need to use a tripod to the degree you had to in the past.

Thanks John. I thought it would be easy to find a shot with clouds as the leading lines but it took me a while to come up with just that one.

Thanks Leya. I think that the tree trunk shot is the most popular from the comments. It was the first shot that came to mind when I read the challenge.
