A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

ASHNESS 4/7

After the “chocolate box” picture of Ashness Bridge of yesterday the alternative view, that one doesn’t usually see, taken below the bridge on the banks of the Barrow Beck. I had to wait quite a while to get this shot without people or traffic on the bridge or in the foreground. I took pictures from both banks but preferred this one of the two.

Triple Wow Brian! This is a fantastic landscape with wonderful elements. The sky is awesome and there is just so much to see and admire.
Brian Walbey: And it looks so different from the big scene of yesterday doesn't it.

excellent image Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
c'est un merveilleux paysage de fées et de lutins.

And you did well waiting to obtain this stunning image Brian!

This is a great view Brian, even better than yesterday. I like the way the light catches those boulders showing the ruggedness of the scene.

I like this better than yesterday's shot. Love the bright light, the wonderful textures of the rocks and the more rustic look of the bridge.

You have captured that scene so well. The place looks ageless.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Suzanne. I guess this bridge must be many decades, if not centuries, old.

Beautiful scenery Brian, I love these kind of places smile
Brian Walbey: Yes so different from yesterdays big view isn't it.
Love this image, Brian. The old stone bridge, free standing wall, the stream gushing through those boulders; the whole scene is reminiscent of a fairy tale. Wonderful!
Brian Walbey: Yes so different from yesterdays big view isn't it.
Cracking picture Brian. All it needs is a horse and cart going over the bridge
Brian Walbey: Now I would have included a horse and cart but had to be very patient not to get any GUW or motor vehicles.
Taken away from the usual backdrop,Brian,gives an altogether different feel to it,making it appear much more isolated,in the wilds somewhere.
Brian Walbey: Yes so different from yesterdays big view isn't it.
Good drama here, I bet it would look good in b&w
Brian Walbey: Might give it a try John.

I think it is testament to the bridge builder that it has stood up to millions of cars probably over the years. I'd love to know just how many photos there are of this bridge.
This is a wonderful composition Brian... and i am glad that you captured the water at regular shutter speed... a natural stream....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. To me this creamy water genre is no longer creative because everybody does it, and quite honestly I prefer water to look like water.
You've shown those textures very well, Brian.

Such massive boulders, and the water level looks very low, Brian
gourgeous landscapes Brian
