Hi guys,

All those literature buffs out there might appreciate this shot. It's taken of a very old farmhouse on the lancashire/yorkshire border near Howarth.

The farmhouse is believed to be the inspiration for the setting of Emily Bronte's famous novel Wuthering Heights, which tells the tale of a young woman locked away in a desolate and remote farmhouse.

I was hoping to capture a dramatic sunset but the mist came in. If you have read thenovel then you will probably appreciate the mist as it helps capture the eerie feel of the moors.

I did contemplate hanging around to see if the mist cleared but it started getting dark and as i was alone and it was a goodone hour trek back to the road i thought that if i did stay any longer i may end up having to change into brown trousers!

Comments and critique would be greatly appreciated.

As someone who very much apreciate Bronte sisters, the impact of your shotincreased geometricallyin my eyesMakes a lot of sense indeed!!

Ah, I wish we also had a mate from Russia to sendpictures ofthe placeswhich once inspired Tolstoy's imageries!

Bahadir, I just knew i would get a comment from you, it was almost a test, one that you passed with flying colours!!

I'm glad you appreciated the shot, it does only really work if you are familiar with the Wutheing Heights Novel.

To capture war and peace graphically would be even more of an epic and time consuming process than what it actually took Tolstoy to write it!

Great dreamlike landscape, different from Dartmoor pictures. Wonderful colours in the foreground

Atmospheric pic, not the place to loose your bearings in the mists

I am reminded also of the 'Kate Bush' song 'Wuthering Heights'

nice capture......musket
