Overlooking the Bay

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 12 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A tree overlooking Morecambe Bay backlit by the morning sun.

By the way, this is the same tree photographed back in April 2008: http://ianbramham.aminus3.com/image/2008-04-20.html

Another nice example of your skills, Ian. The bay in the background is almost only visible because you told us about it. A relaxed image which would fit every living room.

@Mirko Herzner: Thanks Mirko.....I keep hoping that one day I'll be able to capture this scene with good enough light for me to leave it in colour so that the sand and water of the bay visually form more part of the photo. It's low tide on this shot but the sea comes up to the line of the hedge that runs across the bottom of the frame in the foregrond.

A great image that reminds me of C D Friedrich.

Another beautiful shot. Works fantastically as a black and white. Love the way the tree stands out against the clouds and is frame by the dark areas of sky.

Or 'OverBayking the look' (sorry, couldn't resist!) - another great shot Ian - and I always love to see interesting old trees.

Stunning image! I love the strong contrasts, and the simplicity of it all. Even though it's simple, it makes a very strong statement.

Excellent image Ian and such great post production. I really like the details of the tree and dark sky and how it contrasts so nicely against the light tones of the bay.
