A Welsh Country Lane in Winter

by gordonmichaelsutton

Postponing the Ruthin Crafts Centre – http://www.ruthincraftcentre.org.uk/ – always worth a visit – I wandered not too far off the beaten track and down a country lane in the shadow of the Clwydian hills and Moel Famau. The day was crisp and cold and the sky a beautiful blue.

The colours were intense and rich in the late afternoon light and the shadows were long on the ground.

There were wide panoramic views to be had as well as some interesting and abstract detail in the hedgerows.

Great clarity in the close ups.

Really like the way these twigs in the hedgerow are framing the shot. How did they know how to do that?

A little further down the lane was a rusty corrugated iron shed that was covered in ivy. Time for that green filter. Here’s the result.

It was really starting to get cold now. Like the way the blue filter seems to give a sense of the chilly conditions. Time to head to the craft centre in Ruthin, just a few miles away, for a warm cup of tea!
