Hidden away, yet not so very far away, from the asphalted path to (over)heated holiday hell waits a world of standing stone sentinels, chalked up symbolism, whispering reeds, serried rows of silent corn. No queues for petrol, diesel, burgers (nor crushing coronaries). No three-laned black topped road to nowhere (and back again).
No sound, except the wind, and the well of words within.
Shot with Nikon D700 in manual mode and ISO200 with AF Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D lens.
I still want to collect my thoughts and – I can’t, and now there are these little details, these little details…

When I saw this challenge,I knew I would be unable to resist, I have been neglecting both my photography and my writing recently. Tempted to find a lazy shot from my archive, I walked outside and took a shot of the first thing I saw. It is far from technically good, it was hand held, and taken too quickly. But hey, it’s Friday afternoon, it’s Summer and I’ve been writing proposals all day and it’s now time for a beer, no?
for wordpress weekly photo challenge – details *shot with nikon d700 and nikkor af-s 70-200mm f/4 lens at 160mm, 1/250s f/4 and IS 1250, should really go back with a tripod and do this properly but decided to submit this anyway as it’s friday*
