  1. An older picture this week, but newly processed.

  2. I like the way you make a feature of things that some would think are getting in the way.

  3. Often one makes a much stronger landscape shot using features such as this power cable and pole. Done well, as here, accentuates lines and angles and gives an extra dimension. Of course, it is also the reality and should be included if done well. The power lines here give a feel for the last push of civilisation before it all gets too difficult. What a lot of people in big cities do not realize when they complain about how little broadband they have is that with privatisation there has been a gradual retreat from countrywide coverage of such things as electricity. energy and telecommunications as was achieved in the post-war period.

  4. It is an interesting juxtaposition of the pole and the remote looking coast. I put myself in the group of photographers who would have moved to get that pole out of the picture.

    You just need money John! Nora and I were in Scotland in an area where the signs warned of the remoteness and the need to register your journey when we came across BT laying a fibre optic cable. A few questions with the locals revealed the man who owned stage coach had bought the manor at the end of the track.

  5. The pole does get in the way — but I assume that is part of the point of this. I can go either way on including man-made features depending on my mood but, like Rex, I suspect I would also have moved. I also suspect the result would not have been so intriguing or interesting as this image is.

  6. Rex – I remember about the Stagecoach guy now you mention it. Definitely not enough money – if I did have it I might even buy a Leica!!

  7. Just got home and looking at this on a decent screen and now the atmosphere burst through. Lovely.

  8. Thank you everyone. This is pretty close to ‘the end of the line’, although we have stayed further north (google Barnhill for really remote). The composition was intentional, albeit intuitive too, and I’m pleased that it worked.

  9. Great colours and the pole adds some strong geometry that means it works well for me.
