Good colour tones look like a bleek day in Wales
anniedog: The sky was dark on one side of the valley, yet bright sunshine on the other.
Splashing out on your holidays again?
anniedog: Only the best! this was actually down the road from where I was staying.

How much a week did you pay Ingrid?? What ever the cost you were robbed.grin
The view on the other hand is
anniedog: The view is certainly splendid, though I don't think I would pay anything for this - caravan holidays aren't my thing!

we used to have a caravan like that!
anniedog: There were several caravans here - not a site, more of a little small-holding. I've got another one for later in the week.
wonderful light Ingrid. Why is it that caravans are only ever photographed when they look knackered?
anniedog: I always prefer my photographs to look a little knackered! Nothing too bright and shiny.

Nice -was this your camp site?
anniedog: No - I'm afraid my camping days have long gone! This was a little small-holding down the road from where I was staying.

Another of my motifs - the perfect garden. Was this your accomodation?
anniedog: Ha, very funny! As you well know, I don't do camping or caravanning!
Superb lighting Ingrid. I suppose the caravan is catching the sun, waiting for next summer!
anniedog: That's a nice way of putting it Richard.
Great light and great photograph. Slightly different theme again, Ingrid. Watch out or Blackie might paint it.
anniedog: thanks Chad. He might well do that - I've got several different ones. I'll have to name my price!
Another caravan that has seen better days Ingrid!
anniedog: It certainly has, but it has got its own sort of charm.
location location location ... richard
anniedog: And you've obviously missed your vocation!
I remember holidays in Wales in a caravan just like this, great after the rain light Ingrid.
anniedog: thanks Les - I hope they were happy memories!
5 star then Ingridgrin

great light/view and is that a wee shadow i seesmile
anniedog: thanks Tim - the light was perfect that evening. I think it's the shadow of a telephone pole.
Man and nature in perfect harmony! Wrecked caravans are very photogenic, once the lichen starts to grow on them! Maybe it's just when they are stark white we detest them!
anniedog: I know what you mean - I wouldn't dream of photographing a brand new one!

Looks so much like my parents caravan used on my final holiday with them before flying the coup and discovering Europe. Happy memories.....

Brilliant lighting here Ingrid, I think this caravan has a few interesting stories to tell smile
anniedog: The last holiday with the parents - ah, I remember it well.... Glad to bring back some happy memories for you.
The days of laughing children have gone.
Only birds now chatter into song.
The van's interior is richly coated in condensation.
Just the view suggests location location location.

anniedog: I see you are branching out into poetry now, Richard. You have got an unusual rhythm there!

I like the moody light.
A fine spot to park a caravan
anniedog: A room with a view, definitely. Thanks Magnus.
The tones are magnificent.
anniedog: Thank you Albert - the light was beautiful that evening.

Ooh, a really salubrious holiday let!
anniedog: Someone might like to live there. It does have the compensation of a wonderful view!
Not the most attractive looking of caravans Ingrid but it looks as though it might be in quite a nice spot.
anniedog: It's all to do with the location Brian!
I definetely see the fine light your are talking about - excellent. This is "my" picture, love it - and often when I feel that it's very hard trying to explain why...sorry, but thanks wink
anniedog: I know what you mean Aksel - some photographs just grab you. This is one of my favourites but it's not just because of the light. Perhaps it is the combination of the light and the rather sad looking caravan. I have just been reading something which mentioned moments of heightened perception and how that is conveyed in a photograph sometimes. Maybe that it the case here - I don't really know.

We call them the Clampetts!
anniedog: It certainly had that hillbilly look about it!
