I don't often post landscapes - it's not my forte generally! However, I'd just ordered myself a Sigma 10-20 f3.5 in order to force myself into getting into it proper.

Here's an attempt from a trip to North Wales, in the UK, from a couple of weeks ago. Miserable weather, but we were driving along and saw this old building. I wish I'd stayed a bit longer and perhaps peeked around the interior, but the missus wasn't happy at the delay for just one shot!

Cool, the tree wasn't growing out of the house was it...?? :)

Excellent capture. KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Thanks folks! Just remembered to check back :-)

Nah, the tree is growing behind the house... but it does look like it's burst through, which is one of the appealing things I think!

Lol. My wife will sit in the car and read a book for a while, but gets a bit grumpy if I take too long to take pictures. That old house has so much potential I think I would have risked her being grumpy.

Great tones. I especially enjoyed seeing it bigger on your Flickr page.

Thanks again all - wow, the most feedback I've had on any image so far :-)

I'm thinking I should go back... it's just a ruddy long way!

There's actually a decrepit racecourse grandstand not far from where I live which I've been meaning to shoot. It would have a very similar style to this, I think.
