it is a dramatic outlook Frank... the horse seems to be doing fine... and the house was made to last a hundred years...
a new roof and some windows and it will still be standing in another hundred....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: I think you are over optimistic about the house, Peter, some large cracks don't show in this pic'.
Oh you've processed this so wonderfully! This haunting image belies the beautiful day we had... I'm interested to see if Alan will post his own interpretation of this... smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, it does, I would like to see Alans view of it also.

I think we know a certain resident of Greater Scumsville who would love this place Frank..
Frank L Croston.: He was next to me as I took this, Chris....A bit TOO out of the way I think.

It looks good as a ruin, Frank; and that sky - well!
Frank L Croston.: It made a good subject, Elisabeth, the sky helped.
a fine composition Frank, the sturdy house looks worthy of restoration
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin, possibly, though there were some large cracks that aren't showing here.

The animals have enough grazing, so they don't think it is so bleak. But yes, the property has seen better days.
Frank L Croston.: Oh they are ok, Louis, but this building was slowly crumbling away.
Your Bleak Outlook is looking pretty special with the work you've done on it already. If a roof is put on next, you never know.
Frank L Croston.: I always wonder how places end up like this, rather sad.
Excellent shot, especially in B.& W. It's good to know, unlike this, the outlook isn't bleak for you.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you,Brian. I hope

Ah... now there's a view I almost did not recognise such is the skilful editing. I'm not sure I'll bother posting mine now as your is much better sad I like the inclusion of part of the tree although no doubt some putts would say it would be better without it.
Frank L Croston.: No, no, I want to see yours, Alan,I had this style in mind when I took it, so it will be interesting to see another version.I'm glad you like the inclusion of the tree, I think there is too much sky without it. Thanks for taking us Alan, an excellent walk.
Shaw does bleak this is dramatic

Inhabitants would not need to run outside to see the sky, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Very true, Ray, or to find out if it was raining.
so many sharp details... well done...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Larry.
Nice one, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Tom.
