Quite rare for me, this is an iPhoneography landscape shot. Even rarer, it is an image captured outside of my home city of Lincoln, England. Processing is back to familiar territory though. It is artistic in nature using textures and other techniques to generate a painterly feel.

This was very much an iPhoneography doodle. The initial capture gave me plenty of options and really the final image could have gone in any number of directions. As is often the case there is plenty of scope with this image for any number of different versions and it may well be one I revisit at some point.
