Martindale on a day of sunshine and haze
« on: March 21, 2018, 06:52:30 am »

Last week Ken caught Martindale on a day of sunshine and showers, and I was there yesterday in very different conditions.

The first pic is the standard Martindale view, the second an idea that probably needs another visit when it's less hazy. Although I am up here a lot, you can't imagine how much I envy people like Ken who can just pop down the road!

+1.

I'm especially drawn to the spare, elegant second view.

The second one has the makings of a good idea. Can you include a bit more of the stone circle/wall? Perhaps include a complete one?

While I know what you mean, I'm not sure if completing the circles would explain too much. In any case trees lie just outside the bottom right corner and you lose the suggestion of cultivated areas intruding into the wild. It is interesting that people react positively to the second one which is the one I prefer.

The afternoon backlighting is what I like, Ken, though the area can merit a whole day. But you can be there any time you want in 15-20 minutes, compared to 6 hours for me :(

I like the mystery of the incomplete circle just as it is.
