The Viaduct

Took this today, as I was walking back from the garage where my bike is now stored. It was quite a nice shot, but I photoshopped it to match my sombre mood after leaving my bike broken :(

That's a beautiful and evocative shot, mate. Lovely moody piece.
Thanks Grez, I seem to be hunting out these dark shots nowadays. Maybe its my dodgy preception of the world :p
I don't know if youv'e already seen "The Meadow" pic, but it was quite a nice shot until I got it home; then I just made it haunting.
But as soon as I seen the Viaduct whilst walking home, I knew exactly how I wanted it to look, and I had to let the viewer see it too.

Wow - it's like something out of "Signs." Real creepy feel to it. I love these moody shots.
:eek: I was going to brighten the middle ground in "The Meadow", and I then realised that the reason I left it so dark, was because I wanted there to be a feeling of unknown between where the viewer is and the relative "safety" of the barn from the imminent storm. Almost like there still wasn't anything that couldn't happen between that space!
Or maybe I couldn't be bothered, I can't remember;);)
I love moody shots like these dark and manacing looking, I also thought of the film signs when I seen The meadow one, you can imagine a breeze rustling through them grasses looking at it

Bugger I have just remembered it's already been done


The broken farmer Dan rents his farm for the scientist John from the Bovine Genetics Technology that is researching genetic modifications of cattle to increase its fertilization. The veterinarian Orla is bitten by the calf while helping the cow to deliver, and she feels that something went wrong with the experiment. During the night, the cow has a narrow passage for the calf, and Dan asks the young couple Jamie and Mary that is parked in a trailer in front of his farm's entrance to help him in the delivery. When the offspring is born, it bites Dan; Orla arrives later and realizes that it is a genetic anomaly and she sacrifices the calf. During the autopsy of the animal, she discovers that the fetus is pregnant and she destroys the freak hybrids. However, one of them escapes and attacks a cow first and Jamie later. When John arrives in the farm, he discovers that there is the danger of infection of human beings and decides to quarantine the spot. But one offspring is alive and need to be captured.
