Storm over Cherhill Down

12/05/2015
The advantage of photography close to home is being able to wait for exactly the right conditions. This image of Cherhill Down was several years in planning. It all came together when the white horse was re-chalked in early May, oil seed rape was flowering in the western field adjacent to the Down and I noticed the potential for a dark cloudy sky to the south with the evening sun shining from clear sky to the north-west. My composition is balanced by the white horse and Lansdowne monument on opposing thirds and the contrast of the bright yellow oil seed rape with the stormy sky.
