Good Morning Everyone,

Please click on this link to get the true effect of the clouds and the setting. It is so much better!

It's not surprising that the Lake District has a high rainfall; that is where the lakes come from!

On the day that I took this photograph, the day had started bright and sunny and we were walking with friends through St John's in the Vale when the whole sky suddenly changed and black clouds descended!

We needed to alter the settings on our cameras but I couldn't help thinking that the scene was still beautiful despite the storm threat!

Don't feel too sorry for us, we didn't get drenched, the clouds passed over and eventually the sun returned. Maybe some other poor walkers got a surprise shower further down the valley!!!

I hope you have a lovely day, Bev :-)

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful view, dangerous moment, a good text ...
Good work and compositions, beautifully demonstrated, good contrast and perspective, beautiful colors, beautiful moment captured with clouds that bring the storm. Beautiful houses and green trees, interesting fence naredjanog stones.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

Hello Bev,
The white cottage peeping over the ridge of the hill makes an attractive focal point in this well framed composition. The threatening clouds have not prevented you from producing a well realised image with fine colours and clarity.

Hello Bev,
In spite of the obvious threat shown by the dark clouds this is a very attractive view and a perfectly composed photo. There is such a good balance between the old stone wall with a patch of green next to it and the brown slope, and also between the hillside and the trees to the left. The curving road fills the foreground nicely and the white building is well placed in the centre of the photo. Somehow everything seems connected with that white patch.
Kind regards,

Hello Beverley,dark clouds that add to the mood of the shot.The white painted house makes a great focal point half hidden in the folds of the hills.
Good use of the road and the wall to lead the eyes into the scene.
A scene so typical of the Lakes.Lovely!
Regards Jean.

Hello Beverley,
Such dark and threatening clouds often make a very good background. Here they make a very good contrast with the green of the trees and the brown slopes on the right hand side. The white house stands out nicely in the centre.

Hello Bev,

In Belgium got we but 5mm rain in almost one month.
You chose a very nice angle with the curve of the road and small wall to the leftside.
The imminent clouds care for a wonderful contrast..
An excellent composition.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Bonjour Beverly,

J'aime vraiment beaucoup la construction de cette image. La petite route qui serpente ouvre bien l'image et on espère une autre courbe qui nous fera passer devant la belle petite maison blanche. J'aime beaucoup ce ciel.

Nice corner of the curving road, and a sight of the lone house added marvelous effect of depth to the scene, Beverley.
Even with cloudy sky aloft, managed excellent colors and contrast. Fine outcome.
Good evening,

Hello Bev

Good pov to get that bend in the road just in. I also like that bit of house which is visible. But of course it's the change in the weather, the sky above which is the crowning element really.

Nice one, thanks for sharing.


Good morning Bev,
Nice rural scene. I like the POV along the road and the fence. Quite an artistic result, well done!

Fine shot Beverley. The dry walls and white house remind me of Cornwall as well. The UK is so tempting for anyone willing to walk a mile or two. Yes, I remember the clouds at Lake Windermere and how disappointed I was not to witness the blue of the water. Still, you managed to take a gentle image when others would have kept the lens cap on. Regards. Klaudio.
