Despite it`s exposed position,against all the odds this old shed high on the hill near Princetown on Dartmoor continues to defy the elements.

This looks a bit like a fairytale landscape with fairytale colours. The grass is so intensely green and intensely yellow and the sky is clearing up in a miraculous way after some heavy rain (or so I imagine). The old battered shed has the honour of playing the lead role in this composition.

What impresive capture of contrasts given by the light of the storming ( hope that going) cloud
Like the sky at the back and the old small shed (ids that the word? )as the main protagonist
Like also the curves of the straw going far away and given so, deepness
Congrats and enjoy last weekend of the year

a painterly image with the light and atmosphere of a Constable. Nicely composed too.

The image has a kind of mysterious atmosphere about it. The combination of strange colours and low light gives it a surreal touch and the enormous and threatening cloud adds a dramatic dimension to the scene. I like how the winding fence leads us beyond the horizon, making for a nice depth in the picture. The dilapidated shed is ideally placed and makes a good anchor point within this fascinating landscape. A great capture !

I like very much the dramatic lighting, which accentuates the desolation. The shot is well composed with the old hut nicely placed in the frame. The background clouds are quite awesome.

well the elements recently have tested quite a few little out buildings, and it is good to see this one seems to have held on fast. This shot looks like another test is about to arrive though. Love the composition and real sense of drama and atmosphere in this beautiful image. Has a painting-like feel about it.
Have a good last weekend of 2013 - B.

A very atmospheric capture, Beautiful colours on the ground with the sun trying to get through the storm clouds above and the clear blue sky in the background.

A pleasant winter scene in an extraordinary light indeed. The well places shed provides a great focus point from which to explore the wide open Devon landscape that is topped with a gorgeous sky.
I wish you a very happy new year

ce paysage est au bénéfice d'une très belle lumière hivernale.
Bien cadré, avec la petite maison et le ciel menaçant.

i miei complimenti per questa splendida ripresa della campagna inglese in una giornata dalla luce particolare.
Il tuo più che una fotografia sembra un quadro per come hai saputo combinmare nel fotogramma i migliori elementi unendo alla straordinaria bellezza della composizione una luce eccezionale.
Una foto straordinaria che conferma la tua bravura.
Con l'occasione ti faccio gli auguri di un felice anno nuovo

Looks as if the huge cloud is going to fall on the little house! An impressive shot! I like the composition a lot, as well as colours and textures! Good shot!
Have a great New Year!

well, the shed is still there, but i'm not sure who's winning at this current date and time haha
seems like mother nature is slowly taking over :)
I also like the barbed wire on the far left,
lots of mood and atmosphere here
