19th Century Landscape

This image is an excellent contrast to my last photo from the Esk Valley Railway. That time the lighting, the cleanliness of thr window and the angle on the subject were wagering against the shot, but this time everything was going for it: a clean window, lighting favouring the subject matter, and a lower telephoto factor providing for less inherrent grain. This is a classic old farmhouse in the Esk Valley of Yorkshire, between Middlesborough and Whitby, snapped on a sunny afternoon in November, 2007, from the passing train. But for the visible motion on the foreground tree, you would almost think you were standing on the far side of the valley from the clarity. The frame was sharpened and colour- and contrast-balanced.
