Northumberland UK . Three simple landscapes. Trois Paysages simples.

These were all taken along the road between Morpeth and Wooler.Farming -crops, cattle and sheep- shapes many Northumberland landscapes,so does the timber industry and hunting. I strove to capture these landscapes as directly as possible. I used a moderate prime wide angle because they feel immense.

 

Ces photos ont été prises le long de la route qui mène de Morpeth à Wooler. L’Agriculture -cultures, bétail et moutons-façonnent beaucoup de paysages de Northumberland, ainsi que l’industrie du bois et la chasse. Je me suis efforcé de capturer ces paysages aussi directement que possible. J’ai utlisé un grand angle modéré tant ces paysages me paraissent immenses.

I am not attracted to picturesque photos of well known places but rather to little unembellished glimpses. Je ne suis pas attiré par des photos pittoresques de lieux bien connus mais plutôt par des petits aperçus non embellis.

Moon over Skye. Lune sur Skye.

black and white landscape photograph of the moon and clouds over Skye

Black and white photograph of the Moon over Skye. Digital. Photographie noir et blanc de la Lune sur l’isle de Skye. Numérique. 2010.

This is my most recent version of this photo, much more subtle or at least subdued than my previous interpretations: I prefer it this way and it prints beautifully. Of course you’re looking at a reduced for web copy. Although in my view it doesn’t render it very well , I still find it preferable to my previous brasher versions.

Ceci est ma plus récente version de cette photographie, plus subtile , ou du moins, mois, bruyante que mes interprétations précedentes: je la préfère ainsi et elle s’imprime magnifiquement. Bien évidemment vous voyez ici une copie réduite pour la toile .Bien que selon moi, elle ne lui rende pas justice, je la trouve quand même préférable à mes versions passées plus criardes.
