I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….Just ambling along country roads in the UK is at least a picturesque experience. The hedgerows that divide fields from each other and the roads provide a habitat for all sorts of flora and fauna, so the occasional whiff of wild garlic, the sound of birdsong and the buzzing of bees makes a relaxing experience.

This is a country lane in Devon when I was en-route for Dartmoor national Park. I never go out of my way to take photographs when cycling along these lanes, it’s just that every now and then a composition jumps out.

Again, processed in Silver Efex Pro as previously described.

  • Beautiful landscape in b&w but my mind changes it to colours…

  • Cette image est mon coup de coeur du jour.
    J’aime cette composition et ce traitement en n&b.
    Merci pour ce partage.

  • I’m increasingly being drawn to B&W landscapes. This image certainly confirms that you don’t have to go out of you way to find really good examples.

  • Beautiful country view in lovely b/w also a nice composition and framing.

  • beautiful shot. nice tones and atmosphere. very idyllic.

  • Reading the description you provided makes me want to go there for a walk myself.

  • A truly lovely and evocative composition. I agree with the others it is magical..a story land. Wonderful lighting.

  • this is excellent again … and your words are spot on! you live in a very picturesque country indeed, and there’s no need to go out of one’s way in order to find wonderful photo opportunities like this !!!

  • I love Devon! Wish I had had more time to explore when I was there but it was time to visit the relatives. Love how your eye is drawn to the gate and what’s beyond.

  • A delight. Not usually keen on b&W landscapes but this suits a feeling of the “good old days” very well.
