I seem to have started a short series of winter themed pictures here on smithiesshutter, so here is the second post on the theme of Winter Walls. This is also the second appearance of this particular image. It first appeared back in January 2012 and results from a need to collate some of my favourite photos for a project. In doing this I have re-edited it using my evolving approach to image editing, so this new version is altogether darker.
My approach to editing often seeks to create a sense of imminence where tension is created through an air of expectation that something is about to happen. This can give a sense of unease to the picture. The mood is suggestive of an evening light and the wall meanders in a slightly drunken fashion into the barrier of trees. What part does that small stone play in the drama?
