"Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night..."

A great composition with the tree, the fence, the cloud. Love the evocation of night time under a summer sun that the light implies.

Thanks,Peter G. to inspirate this picture....
Wow. There is absolutely the sense of time in this image. I wonder why. It's the darkness and fence the fact that we're on top of a hill, leading down. Distance, which could also be time. It's just gorgeous.

Great capture, full of calmness.

Your rich blacks are so much your signature, your are the Queen of them, so subtle & soulful, always a delight, they never depress me, on the contrary, they talk of depth. Lines in the sky, beautiful tree but what i love the most are those X X X X X X X X of the fence, as if to precise the importance of the attachment to the feeling shared here. Have a sweet week, Sharon*

Bravissimo...I got speechless.

Rich tones and dark atmosphere... only the horizon enlights your photograph...

I like the dark mood (dark but not sad) and the composition: dark cloud, silhouette of the tree and silhouette of the fence's patterns. Beautiful image :)

Love the darkness to this. This is a great shot and great angle. Perfect in B&W!
26 Jul 2010 10:13am
Love the mood of the shot! Well done.
26 Jul 2010 10:38am
Wow, looks almost like some kind of front defence barrier. The dark mood fits perfectly.
26 Jul 2010 11:41am
Such stunning silhouettes. Wonderful mood you captured/created.
26 Jul 2010 11:56am
Lots of "X's" in this scene from the fence to the wires. Must be a subtle, "do not enter" sign.

dark, nice and moody!
26 Jul 2010 3:37pm
very fine bw photograph! i like it!

I would say this image is a poem, it talks to our intimate nature. Love the crosses attached to the ground while the other lines are flying freely in the sky. Contrasts are just beautiful.
26 Jul 2010 5:19pm
lovely dark image. the silhouette of the fence is especially nice.
26 Jul 2010 7:24pm

27 Jul 2010 2:31am
A fabulous composition and a beautiful mood...deep and brooding...I'd like to walk up along that fence and sit awhile beneath that tree...and watch the sky turn dark...a great image, as expected!
27 Jul 2010 5:27am
Wonderfully haunting lingering moment you have caught here . . the somber presentation does bode ill for timer restarting any time soon !
27 Jul 2010 8:40am
Really artistic presentation. I like it.
27 Jul 2010 12:08pm
wonderful cloudy sky

Sharon, really like the inclusion of the crossed wires and the quote you picked was perfect!
27 Jul 2010 4:02pm
I like the obstacles, perhaps some kind of primitive fencing system like the Wild West. The way you shot it in bw does make it timeless. Nice shot.

This is amazing. It goes straight to my heart, Sharon. Just like a good, old & lonely blues tune. Mighty, mighty fine! No fence to stop our thinking or moving. Free at last when we are brave enough to cross these boundaries. Great! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Very nice photo! This reminds me of the famous scene from "Gone with the Wind."
27 Jul 2010 7:27pm
Fabulous use of silhouettes!
27 Jul 2010 8:03pm
Very nice backlight here
27 Jul 2010 8:52pm
It does, if only for a moment, in this fine image. Love that fence and tree.
27 Jul 2010 10:04pm

fabulous! That fence is really something - all of it great.
28 Jul 2010 1:22am
seeing this makes me think of the land being stitched.. :) very nice capture..

Time does stand still with your wonderful photo, Sharon. It's timeless and classic. Gorgeous light behind the tree. I love how the eye goes first to the light, then follows the fence line and the power lines bring you back to the tree and the light again. Well done, Sharon.
28 Jul 2010 5:07am
Beautiful low light, I like the silhouette.
28 Jul 2010 12:42pm
Wonderful composition Sharon! Beautiful lines and soft light.
28 Jul 2010 5:49pm
