Lovely compositions. Especially love the monochromatic as I lived in Oman for 5+ years so they bring back lots of memories and familiar places. Have a super week.
Thank you very much and I am pleased they gave you some pleasant memories 🙂
Beautiful composition here 🙂
Many thanks and pleased you took the time to look at my blog.
Excellent use of light, shadows and shapes David. Your new lens?
Yes; I was checking what I could get away with using high ISO and wide apertures. Hand-held with extremes of lighting.
I think they have some of the ‘soft glow’ that older lenses gave, there is some noise in the shadows but reminiscent of high speed film (so a happy combination, for me anyway).
Great compositions, David. I like the interplay of forms – straight and curved, old and new.
Thanks – my inner eye does seem to like this sort of image at the moment – I’m sure it will pass. 🙂
Back to rock-art and sand………
Love the pix, yours always great…the angles and lines.
But these weren’t there (the railings) – protection for visitors who might fall over edge? Done well in that case. Fits the form, almost compliments it.
And from recent pix understand they are doing a lot of restoration to old forts etc etc
Are more people also visiting? Hope so.
Still on bucket list.
During the restoration, not only have the forts been substantially rebuilt but also for the tourists, lighting plus railings have been added.
Not sure about any of it – as I have commented before; stabilisation may have been better ?? but on the other hand, some were very neglected.
Mud brick needs constant attention, which was not being given.
