Path to Copperas Lane
 Path to Copperas Lane   by Paul Moorcroft  (Panasonic G3 with 14-42 Zoom Lens)
Taken on a regular walk down this path although usually we walk the other way. So it was probably taken whilst looking back at the path.

Love it, love the different textural elements in the photo.


Comment by kath on 10th May 2014 at 06:47
I don't know this place but it's a great photo.
Where is Copperas lane?


Comment by Mick on 10th May 2014 at 07:12
Ive sat and had a rest on that stone marker.

Cant remember which way I was heading though because I have come up it and down it many times over the years.


Comment by Garry on 10th May 2014 at 07:16
I'm not impressed with this black and white winter seen, shot from months back, it looks cold. No leafs on the trees.
Get out there it's "SPRING" there's colour every where. lets kiss goodbye to winter for a little while.


Comment by Helen on 10th May 2014 at 08:15
Why is it that black & white photos look so much sharper.
This is a brilliant photo.


Comment by A.W. on 10th May 2014 at 10:34
I think this is a good photo, not being able to see an end to the path gives it an eternal element, as if the path might go on for ever.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th May 2014 at 11:52
Very nice Paul....far more strength and character with Monochrome.... Has a dark and spooky look to it..... Cheers!!!!


Comment by irene roberts on 10th May 2014 at 14:59
Kath, if you go through Aspull from the Hindley end, you come to a pub called The Balcarres. Turn left there and you are in Copperas Lane.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 10th May 2014 at 16:56
Helen,
here are a couple of points taken from http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/2689/black-and-white-photography/

--"Patterns look more compelling in black and white because colour can distract the eye from the pattern."
--"Some subjects just lend themselves to black and white .... First, look for shapes, lines, texture and shadows.


Comment by Beryl on 10th May 2014 at 17:41
Black and white is so atmospheric isn't it?


Comment by Neil Rigby on 10th May 2014 at 20:28
Lizzie, here's a "spooky" caption for you.
--------
The mood is dark;
The lines of shapes and form give spark
to thoughts of patterned spectres grim,
cloaking the way with light so trim
that enticed you are~
to step and step-
But will you reach the turn afar?
--------


Comment by David on 11th May 2014 at 01:18
That is the path to Coppull Lane not Copperas Lane.
Good photo Paul.


Comment by Ellen on 11th May 2014 at 05:26
I love this picture,being a fan of monochrome.It's a very moody atmosphere you've captured Paul.

....Neil,love your quote; where's it from?


Comment by BREN on 11th May 2014 at 06:42
The path is at the bottom of Bottling Wood steps in Whelley... leading to the bottom of Coppull Lane, further along is Tesco. Nice Photo... I like it.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 11th May 2014 at 10:56
Ellen, such-as-it-is, its my own work, written for this photo. I tried to work in various aspects of previous comments.
I am pleased you like it.


Comment by Paul M on 11th May 2014 at 17:35
Many apologies to everyone including Brian for mixing up my Copps's. David you are correct, it's definitely Coppull Lane. I like your words Neil, a perfect match.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th May 2014 at 21:41
Thank you very much Neil....appreciate the words....they fit very nicely .... Cheers!!!


Comment by Ellen on 11th May 2014 at 22:48

Comment by Neil Rigby on 11th May 2014 at 23:34
Ellen - Yes, you may quote if you wish.
