rain over the Teifi Valley

Filed under: John Ellis — zavaell @ 07:13



  1. When I first viewed this I felt as though the rain was receding, but failed to think of a reason to back that up as a sound judgement. So then I thought perhaps this was simply unfounded optimism on my part and wondered if this image could be used as some kind of personality or mood test.

    So then folks, is the glass half empty or half full?

  2. The rain arived a couple of minutes later – so completely full!

  3. The valley and the rain are nicely rendered. I don’t think the photographer’s shadow is strong enough to help which tends to make it a distraction.

  4. Is it not all the shadows that create the feel of the low light and the contrast with the advancing weather front? The photographer’s shadow also seems to me to add to the feeling that I am viewing the scene, there is a real person looking at this. I find it evocative.

  5. I don’t often play with my own shadow but because I was at a point higher than the valley I found that it was difficult to get a good shot without my shadow in it. I decided to go ahead and rather liked the result!

  6. long shadows, warm light, cold front.
    The shadows create a forground interest, the 2 diagonal lines bototm right balance the heavy left corner and nicely match the lines in the fields further up the picture.
