All from along the old drove road running across the top of the Quantock Hills, Somerset, SW England.

I love how the trees provide a vegetal shelter… Processing is excellent as is framing.
It's a very nice gallery!

Wow Bill! Everything about these photographs is everything I like about photographs!

Your processing transforms the already lovely colour pictures (I saw them on Flickr) into something really special!

I think they would make wonderful prints.

What a great set of images Bill.

I think you have shot along this patch before Bill and if so, then doesn't it prove that going back to the same location over and over again with your camera, allows you to become ever more attuned to what you can find there?

Outstanding set. The second image is among the finest I have seen in a while.

Wow. Thanks for all the positive comments.


Dave, yes, I return again & again to some of these spots. Something changes every time - a tree will have fallen, it'll be foggy or the light will have changed, the leaves turned, leaves gone, snow ... always worth return visits.

Great photographs! Fairytale timesless atmosphere without overdone sentiments.
Very nice in BW

I only wish that the people on them would not make me snap back into reality.
They could be left out for me or replaced by less time related silhouettes.

I thought too a stronger silhouette would be beneficial in #2.

I've got a couple from the same position (more or less), sans humans. What do you think?
