the highwayman by carol brandt


Available to buy on…

Composite of 3 (of my own) images using Nikon D200 camera, compiled and edited in CS5.
The shot of the coach horses reminded me of Alfred Noyes’s wonderful poem, The Highwayman, hence the title.
The poem begins:

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door…
