A few photos that I find rather serene.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Serenity.

Monochrome Monday is only going back a couple of years.
As the image is almost timeless I decided to make it look like an old film image by adding a film type border and an uneven vignette.
The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Landscapes.
Some light mist over woodland and farmland during the golden hour. Taken from Bickerton Hill, Cheshire looking towards North Wales.
Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England sometime in the 1970s. This shot sat in my slide files overlooked until I started copying some of the slides a couple of winters ago. Since making a digital copy the shot has grown on me.
Probably taken when I was a photography student in the late 1970s. I recognise the location as close to my parents house at the time. If I was taken when I was studying photography it would have been taken with an Olympus OM1, which I still have. If it was taken before I was at art school it could have been taken with a Zenit E, my first serious camera.
Alternatively, part one of using a telephoto to isolate sections of the landscape as this may be an ongoing topic.
For this shot I was on a local back road looking for Eastern Meadowlarks during the golden hour one morning. I noticed the low sun was illuminating some distant trees with patches of mist amongst them.
Having a long telephoto on the tripod I started framing some of the trees and mist patches.
