Cleadon Mill #5

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 26 April 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Last in a series of five HDRs featuring the old mill on Cleadon Hills, South Shields.

It was one of those days when the sky looked perfect for some dramatic HDRs so I took the tripod for a slog up the hills to photograph the old ruined windmill. Had a nice chat with another photographer from Hebburn who was also shooting frames for Photomatix work, we had to wait until a large group of ramblers passed through before being able to make our shots.

Took this one shooting through the barred up entrance to the old mill looking out across the hill towards South Shields.

PENTAX K100D 1/90 second F/8.0 ISO 200 45 mm

Good framing. The photo lacks of focus but shows a beautiful landscape in the background!

Roman from Thiersee, Austria

wow, I think this view through the grid was hard to focus, but the landscape behind is clear and sharp - very good job.
great idea of framing the view by the stony window.

Great Image. Seeing the fields and sky from behind the very nice door ( i love doors) makes me think off freedom from behind bars. I am longing out from the backside and out in the open. Love that you mangage the make my imaginagion spin arraound. I always thik its not only a good but a great work ogg art & pitcurer when the photographer makes me see and think storys out from the image.

Somehow this picture just doesn't work for me. Like Paco Diaz said, the picture lacks focus, and for me its a bit too bright!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Very expressive and evocative of deeper symbolism. I am struck by the ease and flow of a landscape versus what mankind will impose upon it, even an old structure that is more harmonious than most. An excellent and visually accomplished series!
