Approaching storms seem a good subject to photograph except when you’re km from no where and the potential to turn the path less trod into a quagmire.

This is good. I think you have a knack in B&W shots.

The light in the cloud is very fascinating.

My Lil Bro takes me for walks when I visit him.
”I know a short cut,” he says.
Very funny. NOT!
buggered if I know where we end up. Often crossing some paddock or pebble hopping a flooded creek. We even finished up under the M60 heading for Manchester .And we’d started in York.

We do see some interesting country. Being the UK there’s always rain about.

I prefer the 2nd post, given a strong foreground/middle/background. It creates a more clear sense of place to me. The first has too much undefined black in the clouds (is there any detail that can be recovered?) and the vegetation is a nice texture, but you've missed the opportunity to D&B to create some drama.

In the first case, the wheat field isn't really the subject, is it?

I do like them both. I just the the latter is more successful. Thank you for sharing.

Whats a D&B when it’s at home, Gary?
You’ll need to forgive me on that. There’s probably a language barrier. We don’t do much abbreviating where I live. I don’t even text or use emojis. Yep, I’m that f***ing old.

I rather doubt you're much older than me, although I'm not quite a pensioner.

You're British, if I'm not mistaken? Don't you mean "bloody old"? :-D

Apologies for the shorthand. D&B == "dodge and burn".

And that should have read, "I just think that the latter..."  Me and my fingers. *sigh*

Yep, it works for me.  Nice job here, the B&W works along with the choice in frame.
