The Three Ships


Photo Information
These weathered Gritstone Rock formations are on top of Birchen Edge Derbyshire, and are close to Nelson's Monument. They are known as the three ships after their names carved into them. From left to right respectively they are "Victory", "Defiance" and "Royal Soverin"(sic).

The composition works well for this picture I like the foreground interest with the grasses and the grimness of the rocks. The moody sky radiating from behind the rocks really makes the photo.
Friendly Regards

Lovely shot Jim, the high contrast processing suits this one to a tee.

We're used to look at your superb rock-scapes. This is another one...It almost looks like a "rolling stone"(One lick)

Wonderful contrast between the stones and sky. Real dynamism here.

I keep thinking you have a magic eye for skies... but suspect it's that PLUS patience

A worthy lesson for us landscape types

Many thanks everyone
