Reaching to Heaven

2 September 2005

Once more I have had to resort to an image from the archive. I have a good reason - one that goes slightly beyond the lame excuse that I couldn't be bothered picking my camera up - for the fact that I couldn't really be bothered picking the machine up is by-the-by. Being busy doing other things is my reason. In the morning I was busy beavering away, making sure that I got my invoices out and dealing with the publisher and copyediting and drinking coffee and eating bananas. In the afternoon, Gavin came-a-calling, and we sat in the garden blethering for several hours before retiring to the living-room to make an unsuccessful attempt at removing the big black blobs that have attached themselves to my camera's sensor. We finally decided to give it up in favour of Sensor Swabs and pec pads. They should arrive on Tuesday - so with fingers' crossed, and a little bit of help from Him upstairs, the problem will be resolved. If not, I will have to take it to the Nikon agent in Glasgow to get them to clean it for me... or I could just buy a new camera (but that would be my 4th in 18 months - so I don't see Linda letting me get away with that!). As for this image... well, it may have been taken a couple of months back, but it was jiggery-pokeried today. So there.

Being doing the update for this today... late again!

EXcelent image! Very good dramatic sky and composition.
Guest 10-Sep-2005 21:08 that a technical term?
Great, stormy sky.

Un superbe B&W avec un beau ciel dramatic
et un angle qui "fabrique" une composition presque parfaite

Beautiful shot! Love the mood of the sky, goes well with the building. Very nice compositon too.
Faye White05-Sep-2005 00:30
wonderful composition and the scene is just beautiful!

It looks all powerful there and the polarisation just accentuates that.

Wonderful B&W. Super composition and use of the slight distortion of 18mm. Excellent tonal range.

the ominous-ness

outstanding shot.

Nice b&w, great clouds, let me know how you get on with the swabs, I've got mine to do soon :)
Zak03-Sep-2005 11:57
nice b/w!
Guest 03-Sep-2005 11:20
Super B&W shot. This one gets my vote.

Nice antiquity in this photo. While saying this too shall pass it also says this shall stand. And stunning contrasting sky. Do you dip your bananas in your coffee? Potassium, vitamins and caffeine. Hmm, will have to try it. :) Good luck with the camera.

Stunning image! Nice perspective and composition and perfect b/w tones!
Robin Reid03-Sep-2005 03:27
Quite a brooding shot. Well finished in black and white.

Perfect combination of atmosphere and contrast. B/W just super here.
Steven Jusczyk03-Sep-2005 00:35
Great sky to reflect the mood.

Nice image I like the moody sky. The sensor wipes and pec pads are easy to use and work well.
