It was a misty morning when we were at the entrance to Burnshall Farm on the road between Chillaton and Coryton Station.

The depth is quite amazing and the atmosphere superb. Excellent conversion to black and white. A perfect example of landscape photography at its best.

Wow! Your recent black and white pictures are stunning, with bags of impact, and this one is no exception.
The mist hanging over the distant farm and swirling through its nearby trees adds a lovely mysticism and the intense contrasts provided by the backlit fenceposts and also echoed in the coarse teaxtures of the gravelled road make a very strong foreground.
A fine composition with fabulous strong tones and contrasts, excellent control of the contre jour lighting and exceptional details and sharpness.

une très belle atmosphère dans cette photo, c'est bien fait;
j'aime beaucoup ce chemin et le paysage tout en finesse que l'on distingue à peine derrière la brume.

Du très beau travail de composition. L'utilisation du noir et blanc apporte un petit côté vintage à l'image. La clôture donne de la profondeur et le contre jour est superbement géré.

OO! this is irresistible! Love the way you have presented this in B&W it adds to the mood and captivation of this trip into the mist. Wonderful and very arty too!

Hi Leslie, beautiful B&W photo. I like the atmosphere in this image with that endless black fence and the nice fog in the sky.
Very well done.

Real quality photograph here, Les. It's got the lot: the light, diffused in the distance by the mist; drama from the contre-jour lighting and the monochrome conversion; great depth from the lead-lines of the track and fence; and a sky that, while owing a lot to your post-processing skills, is nevertheless moody, and holds in the top of the image. Great stuff!

Another capture with a very strong effect.
The strength of the black and white is very impressive here.And the sharpness too.
I like the quality of the light and the design of the shadows on the ground,showing to advantage the grass and the stones on the lane.
A very nice and contrasted shot.

Appealing monochrome 'infinity' scene with the basic path and fence leading straight to the distant destination, all revealing details and textures.

Marvelous composition and a beautiful, inviting shot. I like the contrasting light this picture throws out. The mist is a stunning feature and adds much mood and atmosphere. The stony road and harsh fence act as a strong lead in to take the viewer along to the far end of the scene. The detail and textures are just superb, and the use of black and white gives it a real artistic quality. Very impressively presented and executed.

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle, a good perspective and very excellent B/W tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the straight road along the farm in misty morning. It's also tasteful the sequence of the stake of a fixed interval and grove in the distance. And, the shadow projected to the road draws out a good atmosphere.
