The location of this photograph was on the edge of the Black Mountains in the Brecon National park. It’s a great place to visit in any season. The shot was composed using a fairly long telephoto lens. I love the way these lenses compress and compact the view. What struck me when looking at the scene was the sense of isolation that the cottage has. From what I could see there was no road going to it, just a small path. I’d like to think I’d be happy living in a remote place like this but I’m sure the reality would pose some real issues and problems.
I normally only post one image per blog but here I’ve included a second that is framed quite differently. It omits the steep cliff face on the right hand side of the first image and to my mind gives a different feel.
