I took a trip out to Calke Abbey with two other members of the Viewfinder Club and I think we all went there with the hope of finding some images that we could use for the club’s assignment for this month, “Found still-Life”.
I think by the end of the afternoon shooting that we all found something to take back but it was as we were leaving the house through the central courtyard that I noticed this image. The interior walls of the courtyard were all being repaired and were covered with scaffolding. Over the scaffolding blue sheets of safety netting had been secured creating a blueish, cold, glow in the courtyard. However it was the view upwards that I particularly liked. The blue of the netting and the lines of the scaffolding poles created an eerie, mysterious, view upwards to the open sky.
I used my Fujifilm X-T1 and the 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 zoom lens
