Path to Copperas Lane
Photo: Paul Moorcroft (Panasonic G3 with 14-42 Zoom Lens)
Love it, love the different textural elements in the photo.
I don't know this place but it's a great photo.
Where is Copperas lane?
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.
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.
Why is it that black & white photos look so much sharper.
This is a brilliant photo.
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.
Very nice Paul....far more strength and character with Monochrome.... Has a dark and spooky look to it..... Cheers!!!!
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.
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.
Black and white is so atmospheric isn't it?
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?
That is the path to Coppull Lane not Copperas Lane.
Good photo Paul.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Thank you very much Neil....appreciate the words....they fit very nicely .... Cheers!!!
Neil,thanks,you are a poet!May I quote?
Ellen - Yes, you may quote if you wish.
