20080812 - Rainy Days

For the Achromatic August theme.

Quicky today on the way to work. Been busy! Not a very exciting pic, but it is b&w! lol

Processing: Converted to b&w in lab mode, then made a contrast mask from the image itself to lower the overall contrast. Cropped to panoramic format... the bottom was just (even more) boring grass.

Canon EOS 5D ,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
1/125s f/2.8 at 100.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Why do sheep not shrink in the rain?
Ed Goodnight13-Aug-2008 00:34
lovely scene indeed

Nothing with sheep could be dreary. Sheep are the puffy fair-weather clouds of the pasture. Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing -- less caffeine for me ;o)

Nice wide panorama.

you have achieved some depth and separation

Pleasantly pastoral, even if it is rainy.
