Embrace the haze!

Those easterlies have sure brought a lot of haze with them and I HATE haze!

However, in a continuing attempt to challenge myself and shoot in conditions I'm not keen on I set out yesterday evening to see if I could use that infuriating haze to my advantage and knew just the place. I also took great pleasure in going for a perverse 'central composition'! :)

Siabod to Tryfan? Central compositions are not perverse; as in this case, they can be powerful - and just right. Btw, to increase your hate of haze - what comes in on the easterlies here is industrial smog from Liverpool/Manchester/Leeds - particulates, NOx, etc. There's often a band of it visible up to say 600 m off the north Wales coast - there has been this week.

It's definitely where the eye is drawn to first but then the foreground interest draws the eye also, so adds interest.
