These images were not intended to be beautiful and colourful. Instead, I wanted to capture the starkness of the British countryside during winter-time, with its dull, steely grey sky and harsh textures. They were photographed on a cold, blustery, rainy afternoon using a high ISO and varying manual settings to deliberately enhance grain and noise. Afterwards, some of them were put through Photoshop to add to that bleak feeling.

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, goes the saying. As for me, I find your photos very beautiful, especially the ones of tree branches as silhouettes against the grey sky.

    Yes that’s bleak! Really like that third shot, the countryside is almost identical to where I live.
