Grasses of Pew Tor by Alex37 Grasses of Pew Tor by Alex37
Landscape photography is so heavily reliant on lighting conditions that sometimes I get frustrated with persistent rain, flat skies, or hazy sunsets. Yesterday it rained all day until 5pm, the local rivers were ready to burst.
Towards sunset I saw a gap on the horizon and got quite hopeful of some good lighting conditions. I caked myself in mud trying to cycle to this tor on time! The sunlight up at the tor was wonderful, the kind of intensity you only usually get after rain. There was also a stiff breeze, which made the sun kissed grasses a particularly tempting subject.
I had actually been to this tor the day before, and got some good shots, only to delete them by mistake. Had I not deleted them I doubt I would have gone out, it's funny how things work out.

You can download a small version of the PSD here: Pew Tor Grasses PSD

I feel your frustration! I live in the pacific NW and for months at a time we won't see blue sky... storms don't even look fun as they're flat, gray, and miserable. This is a beautiful shot.

Breathe taking work, well worth the effort. The intensity of the colours are spectacular, and
When you feel a shot developing you just get that rush.

BEAUTIFUL, One thing I would change about this though, would be a lens flare, which Optical Flares is great for making (Only for After Effects though).

Yes I do mind actually. Asking afterwards is not the same as asking before. I have pursued infringements related to this image before and I would appreciate it if you removed that deviation. Thanks Alex
