The Chilterns.

Postby John N » Sun Nov 05, 2017 8:52 am

The Chilterns is a range of low hills (900' max.) stretching for nearly 50 miles from the River Thames in Oxfordshire to Bedfordshire. I happen to live close to the North West facing escarpment about halfway along. We've had a couple of decent days recently to break up the dour weather that has been prevalent recently so I was out for a bit of snapology. These two shots are typical of the area, express the low bright sunlight we get this time of year and were attempts to get shadows and plough lines to accentuate the form of the land.

Love these, John! The long shadows and curves of the land, in gorgeous autumn light and colors - hard to beat! You're a little further north than I am (both Yakima WA and Bangor ME are near the 47th parallel), but close enough so I also experience the low angle of sun that's so enticing for this brief season.

Thanks for sharing what Autumn looks like on the Other Side! I spotted a stray turned leaf here and there when I was in Scotland in September but these colors are much richer. That is a beautiful lone tree in the bottom shot, that would offer lots of photo fun in any season.

These really are beautiful, it's the long shadows that give them depth and a feeling of being there. You have a good eye! S-
