Another shot from yesterdays walk. This is also a shot that only seems to be possible during winter when the absence of leaves allows the sunlight through whereas in summer it is very gloomy. I struggled a bit with the levels here because the ground is heavily undermined and subsidence has taken its toll over the years leaving the ground, trees and structures tilting in all directions. Have I got it correct?

It looks very well aligned to me considering there is no good reference point , good detail even in the darkest arrears,
This is the type of image that I like lots of detail and things to explore, well spotted and taken

Gotta agree with Steve, no datum point to prove or disprove its alignment Looks mighty good to me.
A cracking lead in that just takes the eye through those gorgeous shadows, past the mighty trunk of one tree through the arch towards another.
Luv it, just luv it, smashing shot.
The foot must be on the mend then?

Thanks guys. For the first time in many, many months I can walk almost without pain in my foot George so now I have to build up to my usual three to five miles daily walk, hopefully without re-creating the problem!

Sometimes an image can look wrong when it is actually correct, I mean if a door was crooked we may expect it to be square. But things looks fine here, easier to repair the wall on the computer than in real life. The image looks a little soft on my monitor, but a nice shot non the less well done.
Glad your leg is improving Keith, mine is still very painful.

Great news about the foot Keith, but don't overdo it

Excellent lighting giving good strong highlights and shadows and bringing out some good detail in the stonework. The composition works very well too.
Glad to hear you are on the mend.

Glad to hear you're on the mend. I can share your frustration as I've got a partly-torn hamstring now having fallen off my bike in the ice last week. I couldn't even drive as I couldn't press the clutch and walking was nothing more than a painful limp. Strangely, though, riding the bike is fine, although much slower now. Nothing here to say that it looks anything other than natural. The low angle of the sun has brought out the warmth of the fine stone wall especially. I like the view through the arch.
