I’ve just posted a photo of Formby pine woods on flickr. It features heavy post-processing to transform a pretty, autumnal pastoral scene into a brooding, sinister monochrome image. I’m unsure why I chose to make the scene so dark. Most likely, I got carried away with app filters.

Apparently, digging back through my flickr history, I’ve been doing this for a while. Here are photos in a similar vein, which I now tenuously claim is a genuine aesthetic choice called ‘northern gothic’.
