Throwback Thursday

A Solitary Conifer

Throwback Thursday travels back to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

I noticed the tall, blue green conifer sticking out of the surrounding Silver Birch trees and isolated it with a telephoto lens.

Strange Perspective on Shadows

This is my day 5 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

The shadows of the various trees are a bit strange in this photo. The shadows cast by the row of trees seem to be pointing in a different direction to the shadow cast by the solitary tree in the field. That’s because the field is in effect a miniature valley. The shadows of the row of trees are on one slope and the shadow of the solitary tree is on the other slope.

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt Shadows and Silhouettes.

I decided to keep it simple and go with one photo of shadows and one photo of a silhouette.
