Buttermere II, Cumbria by Charlie Waite
Limited Edition Signed Landscape Print
It seems to me that a greater sense of depth and continuity is promoted where distant lines of layers and folds in the landscape are not interrupted by any vertical. The lonely tree fitted well with its top right-hand slope angled and shaped as the highest hill above.
Depth helps to mitigate the two-dimensional nature of photography.
It was something of a game between me and the clouds as, for nearly an hour, they conspired to deny me the stab of light that I wanted. Finally, for a mere few seconds, the tree acquired its deserved nobility and stature as the sun honoured it with oblique, early warm autumnal light.
