Over The Hills And Far Away

Le Reposoir, France

Taken just behind the quaint church I posted about last week, this was the lovely view I had all to myself whilst eating lunch in Le Reposoir. Beautifully serene, it really captured my imagination with the green hills giving way to the snow-capped mountains of the French Alps in the distance. I wanted to get closer to those mountains!

Alas, they were very far away from this spot. And those hills are much steeper than they appear! Unfortunately the direct driving route was still closed because of snow, so I’ll have to head back another time.

There was something about this composition that really appealed to me, with soft almost unnoticeable leading lines guiding you from left to right and the mountains that lie beyond. And for midday sun the light wasn’t too bad either!

      Thanks Mjollnir. I wasn’t aware of the link to Led Zeppelin! Looks like you have a fellow fan further down the comments 🙂

      Thanks Ivan. I agree with you on wires, they are distracting. Unfortunately I don’t have Photoshop and wasn’t convinced I could remove them effectively in Lightroom. Maybe there is another tool I could use?!

    This is so epic! and you named your post after one of my favourite songs by Led Zeppelin! 😀 although I’m not sure you did that deliberately. (did you? :P)

      Haha, no that wasn’t deliberate. I don’t even know the song! But you’re the second person to mention that link.
