Post Lane Twilight

Post Lane Twilight

This spot is a short bike ride from home. I love this view of the lane tumbling westwards down from the crest of the hill. It embodies the feel of the Blackdown Hills for me, and I've tried to capture it many times, particularly at twilight in late winter and early spring when the sun sets behind the iron age hillfort of Dumpdon Hill in the distance. The light was very unusual on this evening at the end of a strangely dry March. Within minutes of taking this photograph, a thick fog had risen all around me, leaving only the white all around and the misty pink glow almost the only clue as to which direction I was looking in. This image will feel "underexposed" for many tastes, but I love twilight and I've tried to capture its sense of mystery while keeping at least a little detail in the shadows.
