Neodigital Art | Black Country pictures

This is the pool in Moorcroft Wood, last summer. The next picture is of it recently in the depths of winter; after the snow.

 The Sanna

It’s not so green and lush now, but it has filled with water. It seems it was the snow melting off the hills that filled it. It has also overflowed into a smaller pool. There are other smaller pools and I’ll be checking those to see if they’re filling with water.

LOCK KEEPER COTTAGE Watercolor

This is the lock keepers cottage photo that I took recently. I’ve used PhotoScape to edit and used the watercolour pencil option. Notice the satellite dish, I edited that out for the next photo.

LOCK KEEPER COTTAGE B&W

I tried to get a vintage look to this photo. There is a clone option in PhotoScape and I put the cursor on the satellite dish and cloned the wall next to it; removing the satellite dish. The canal is probably 18th century and it would have looked like this in Victorian times.

canal 2

I just increased the colour in this picture, using PhotoScape. It has made the grass a little too green, but it’s made it more interesting. In the Black Country you can’t go far without crossing a canal. This one runs through Walsall to Rushall. It would have served the coal fields, long ago.

What do you think of this week’s pictures? Please share your thoughts in the comments box.

  1. Hi Mike, Love these images! The lockkeeper’s cottage images are always favorites. Lovely scenes. The color saturation is great. It may be too green but I love the colors.

    I’m looking forward to your bluebell pictures. They should be coming soon, right? Your pictures just bring me back to England each week which makes me very happy!

  2. Hi Carolyn,
    I was trying to show how a scene can change with the picture of the Sanna, so it’s always worth going back. The lock-keepers cottage pictures are all edited differently. The last picture does have a little too much colour. It’s difficult with winter pictures, because the light bleaches everything. The grass probably is quite green!
    I have been thinking about the bluebells. There should be some in Moorcroft Wood and some at Sot’s Hole. The latter has lots but parking my car near there is hard. I’ve been told Merrion’s Wood has some, but I would have to be careful not to get another speeding ticket if I go there!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. Spring starts next Wednesday! 🙂

    • I don’t blame you. I probably would get a speeding ticket too if I were driving to bluebells!

      I am going to respectfully disagree with you about the bottom picture, Mike. I consider your photos to be art and art doesn’t have to be realistic, just appealing and I find the bottom image very appealing! 🙂

      • I have just looked at that picture again, I often gets strips of grass that look too green. It could be that it actually is quite green, maybe the water runs down there.

        I’m not sure if you have bluebells where you live, but the best pictures are with the camera quite close to the ground. I might try a tripod this year!
