There Is A Point


There is a point at which the steep inclines of the Pennines are tamed and domesticated. There is a point at which the busy sound of rivulets cascading through lock gates gives way to the peaceful sweep of rivers almost within salt-smelling distance of the sea. As I discovered during my Ten Square Odyssey outing earlier in the week, that point is near Woodlesford.

I like the photo - especially the contrast between what looks like crackly and thirsty grass, with that cool dark water running alongside it.

What beautiful reflections in the water and nice clouds too. I thoroughly enjoy these tours of yours.

The sweep of water and very clear reflections make this a really interesting picture. It makes me want to explore....

If I were going to teach a class about using one point perspective, I would immediately use this photo of a great example of it. All lines point to an exact area. Sometime that point is covered up by a tree but yours is not. Great shot!!!!!

I like the contrast of the vegetation growth on the opposite sides of the river, one clearly more cultivated.

Beautiful vistas and reflecions. Simply delightful.
