Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 15 March 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A composition of a zigzag of opposing lines at Coniston Water in the English Lake District.

This was a long exposure of about 2.5 minutes with me holding a large umbrella over the camera to try and keep the falling rain off the front of the Sigma 10-20 lens. It was photographed back in January and you can see the remnants of some of the snow that we had then still edging the lake.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

The lines in this photo are fantastic, vertical and horizontal make such a subtle pattern. Excellent composition and black and white tones.

I really like your UWA-images. I recently bought a Sigma 10-20 myself . Have to practice some more before I can show the results on my blog. Meanwhile I get inspired by your photo's (if you allow me :-) )

excellent composition and light! i like the vignetting effect here - the light fall off seems to fit this scene very nicely and creates and interesting effect!

Everytime I'm close to pushing the button and upgrading my D40 to a D90 I see some excellent example of why the camera's not the problem!

Love it!
