KJL focus landscape. Featuring coloured and greyscale images.
An infamous coastal attraction on Englands South coast. Many people make the hazardous trip along the cliffs to see the famous red and white Beachy Head lighthouse, which in 1902, began warning sailors of ships about the dangers of the cliffs and further off shore rock formations. The walk along the cliffs of Beachy head is hazardous because of the sheer drop down to rocks below, landslips and the fact, there is hardly any fencing. This image was taken in high summer in 2012. It was captured on the same day as Beachy Head lighthouse, which gives a different angle of the lighthouse and is also in full colour as opposed to black and white. Beachy Head would make for a great talking piece for most rooms. The black and white image with the focal point in colour is a modern, fashionable finish.
Green Window – Lake Ennerdale
Green Window - Lake Ennerdale, titled because of the gorgeous green 'window' which captures the bottom half of Lake Ennerdale, one of the most enchanting lakes in the Lake District. Although small it features an exciting and interesting walk that takes you over the occasionally gushing, in-flow, of the River Liza. Fresh from an October storm, Green Window - Lake Ennerdale was taken in 2012, half an hour before Trunks was taken. Trunks however was captured at the top of the lake and Green Window at the bottom. The overcast sky gives great contrast, showing how the Lake District can be stunning whatever the conditions. The greenness couple with the water has a calming effect on whoever views it. Lake Ennerdale, which is also commonly known as Ennerdale Water is surrounded by some of the best known fells in Cumbria including, Great Gable, Green Gable and High Crag. The out-flow of Lake Ennerdale is the River Ehen, which runs into the Irish Sea. Green Window - Lake Ennerdale is a calming yet stunning image of an under rated lake. It would be an undeniably great focal point for a bedroom, even a lounge.
The Lake District epitomised in one image. As it captured in October, the image features, a tree whose leaves are turning vibrant colours, it's branches creates a natural window looking out on to Lake Windermere - the 'capital' of the Lake District. Moss and ferns, sprinkled with orange/red leaves, which are also common throughout the Lakes help to make up the border of the frame. Move past the frame and a large hill and peak can be seen, although just faint enough to not be to overbearing, which nicely balances out the image. This image looks amazing as a print or framed behind perspex. Choose the framed option and it'll come mounted, in a solid plain black frame with perspex. Or buy the print, 16"x24" or 20"x30" and source your own frame.
Lake District Scafell
Lake District Scafell. The climb up, Scafell Pike, can be a little treacherous at times, however you start the climb off with a shallow walk winding your way up the half purpose made, half water forged path where you'll eventually come across this little bridge. Full of character emerging out of rock formations this bridge was built out of a mix of rocks and slate from the peak itself. The bridge takes you safely over a gushing stream created with water coming down the peak. Colours like deep turquoise and green show how fresh it is, and also how Scafell Pike acts like a big water filter when it flows down through the banks and rocks. Highlighting the rocks at the bottom of the pool it creates rich colours you would have never thought existed. Lake District Scafell, was taken just before Lake District Waterfall. When viewed next to each other, the two images make for a pleasing focal point in a room.
Lake District Waterfall
Lake District Waterfall. The climb up Scafell Pike, can be a little treacherous at times, however you start the climb off with a shallow walk winding your way up the half purpose made, half water forged path where you'll eventually come across this small but impacting waterfall. Full of character emerging out of rock formations the waterfall is especially active during and after heavy rainfall, which isn't rare during the months from October through to April in the Lakes. Colours like deep turquoise and green show how fresh and clear the water is and how Scafell Pike acts as a big water filter when it flows down through the banks and rocks. Highlighting the rocks at the bottom of the pool it creates rich colours you would have never thought existed. Lake District Waterfall was taken just after Lake District Scafell, a little further on in the walk. The two would make a great pair side by side and create a nice talking point in any room.
Leaves on the ground of Hall Place tudor house in Bexley, located just outside of Crayford. Hall Place's gardens have many different species of trees, these leaves of a sycamore are probably the most vibrant during the months when the trees change colour and lose them for winter. Bright green in summer the leaves look breathtaking on the trees but come autumn they take on a new life on the ground, with replenished green grass as a background, which makes them really pop out. This image would bring Autumnal colours in to kitchen, living room, bedroom or dining room. Although captured in early October this image oozes a warmness by the help of the greens, reds, yellows and oranges.
Mushroom (Fly Agaric)
This is the quintessential mushroom. The type the majority of us seem to conjure up in our heads when we hear or see the word mushroom. The same type seen in many story books, films, games and used greatly in advertising. This mushroom was found in Beacon Woods in North Kent just outside of Dartford and Greenhithe. Head a few miles away from the rush of Bluewater shopping centre and the A2 and you'll find it hard to believe, but a densely wooded area is what you'll find. Even harder to believe, you've found (as not all woodland is home to such large groups) is the famous red with white spots mushroom, otherwise known as Fly Agaric.
Rocks, taken on the coast of Cornwall in Seaton, England. Even though this image was taken on an evening at the height of summer, the long shutter speeds couple with the greyscale, make it hard on first view to determine at what time of day or year, or even what the weather may have been like when the image was captured. The 'wet', cold surface of the rocks make it seem as though it could be raining, and with a slow shutter speed, it would be hard to work out to someone not in the know, if it was raining or wasn't. The sea looks menacing from the effect of the shutter mixing every wave and ripple together to create an unknown texture, people aren't usually used to of the sea, a calmness.
White flowers can be found in nearly every garden you look in. These particular white flowers were found in the gardens of Hall Place manor house in the London Borough of Bexley. For an artistic look at the image, a nice green tone lays across the white flowers, an indication of the green grass that lay beneath the tree these flowers belong to.
