There’s a spot just outside our village called Devil’s Dyke where folks go to walk their dogs. For years I’ve planned to take a series of photo’s throughout the seasons and have them printed to hang on the wall. Today I decided to take a test photo and figured it fit the Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines post quite well.
The view is unhindered by anything man-made. It’s one of the few places around the village where the view isn’t ruined by telegraph poles or electricity pylons. In the summer this field is a vast sea of wheat so hopefully it should be a good spot to get great contrast between the green/golden colour of wheat set against a dazzling blue sky, when the clouds aren’t quite so busy of course! The field crests in an almost perfectly straight line on the horizon and I’ve tried to get the rule of thirds right with the green, the clouds and the sky.
I’m not sure I like the photo that much now I’ve taken in, the quality isn’t as good as I’d hoped so I’ll have to make a few more trips to get a better shot.
Hunting around for photos that sum up the subject of Lines I found this one of a staircase in a Catholic school where a friend of mine works. It’s a bit nerve-wracking holding my phone out over the drop like that but the shot is pretty cool and well worth it.
