Winter Quarry Edge

This is a very bleak view in the summer as this is a working quarry, but with a covering of snow, and the deep parts of the hole flooded due to unusually high water levels this month, it is actually an attractive view. Of course it is the color of the barberry and phragmities against the snow storm that attracts the eye, while the quarry in the background gives it scale. The falling snow gives the tree-line in the background a unusual softness.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F5 @ 1/160th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Very slight recovery in Lightroom for highlights. Blackpoint well to the right. Added Clarity and more than usual Vibrance (for the little color). Sharpen Landscape preset.
