I hope Simon is not going to curse me too much for this, but I'm going to show his scenic work in much higher detail than normally gets shown on the forum. Not only is he a master at subtle ground cover, he is far too modest to show it himself.
There is much to learn from careful viewing here, so in addition to the normal sized pics, I have also posted larger versions as links.
I have studied these pics many times over the last couple of weeks since MOMING at Pewsey, just wish my photography was better.
So apologies Simon, hope you dont mind too much
Starting with an overall view. CLICK
Moving down to a lower level, note all the weeds along the side of the shed and the way it blends into the grass mat next to the track. CLICK
Now getting in really close to show the diversity of the planting along the rear wall and the way it all blends together. Unfortunately there is only a slight glimpse of the grass mat which forms the basis of the ground cover in this shot, the next will go further left and illustrate it better. CLICK
Better make this the last one before I go and hide
at least I found an excuse to feature the Badger
This shot illustrates very well how the basic grass mat feeds in from in front of the oil drums and how it is blended in by clever use of other materials and objects, with no definate edge. i'm sure all will agree, superb scenic work. CLICK
I hope others learn as much from studying these shots as I have and thanks Simon for the masterclass.
Hope I'm not on your blacklist for too long after this
