Salts Mill - a painter's view


This image was taken on my iPhone one morning on my way to work last autumn. At certain times of year, the rising sun illuminates Salts Mill whilst leaving the foreground in shadow. Sometimes it really looks amazing. I thought this scene was somehow reminiscent of an oil painting... Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot perhaps?  I played around with it a bit in Photoshop and added a texture to it, though you can't really see it in this small web version.

  1. I'm not familiar with the work of Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot. But since you mention it, and after a little research...yes, it is.

  3. I like it when a building catches light in the morning, when all landscape around is still in the shadow..
