The High Pastures

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 21 June 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A barn at the top of a hill in the North of England...dry stone walls, green green fields and lots of sky.

I've been posting a lot of B&W photos recently so it's nice to show you something in colour for a change.

NIKON D40 1/200 second F/11.0 ISO 200 217 mm (35mm equiv.)

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

Very Michael Kenna...nice use of colour.

@Ted: Hi Ted....well I'm certainly a big fan of Kenna's work but I'm not sure if I've ever seen anything in colour by him. I do love the simplicity and uncluttered compositions that are his signature though and try and achieve this whenever I can.

A slight variation to your usual style, but still an excellent landscape Ian. I think I still prefer your BW if you don't mind me saying so.

Your color work is terrific, and here's an example of why. You are especially good at quieter colors in the blue range, just like another blogger here:
