Quite literally! :-) This is not lens distortion, that’s the actual shape of the land, accentuated by the low sharp sun just before the sunset. This is in Hursley (Winchester, UK) just a few meters away from this:

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    I do appreciate the composition and the post-processing, but I can’t help but think the IR conversion took out more than it put in. Just a personal aversion to it, that’s all.

  • Fair enough! I know IR is not to everyone’s taste :-) Thanks Stefan

    Whoa – looks like it’s literally rolling like the waves.
    Love the long, long shadows as well.

  • Thanks Vik, It doesn’t look real, does it? It is 100% real though :-)

    WWWWWow! Incredible distortion created here. I don’t know how you did it but it’s incredible perspective!

  • Many thanks Debi, also for the favouring! I didn’t do it, mother nature did!!! That’s the physical layout of the hill, it’s not artificial distortion. Amazing, isn’t it?

    A wonderful catch of this bit of rock & roll. Marvelous.

  • Thank you very much Sheila :-) I like "bit of Rock’n’Rol’ as a title, I wish I had thought of that!
