My wife and I went for a walk today and discovered a gem of an area on the South Downs. I feel another visit coming on... Below are some of the shots from today;

Great set of pictures. It thinks shadows are very prominent. 7th one is my pick.

Hard to pick a favourite, but #5 probably just shades it for me (apologies for the pun!). This would be a good location to track in different seasons and times of day.

I think you are right; the area is a natural 'bowl' in the landscape and I fully intend to go back there pre-sunrise at some point and see if it is filled with mist/ cloud inversion!

These really remind us that we should always take a telephoto out into the landscape. This part of the world can so easily present as bland and mono coloured with little texture. You've created images with a graphical & shape based emphasis with the shadows creating their own patterns in places where there is nothing on the ground. A very good approach in a sort of 'make something out of not very much' sort of way!

You've inspired me ..... I should get out there with my 14mm and take some 'make nothing out of not very much' shots

Thanks Nigel - just get out there!

I did have a telephoto lens with me, but it didn't get out of the camera bag; these were all done with the 28-105 (which i think you have?)
