The killing field

The killing field

On a bed of fallen Oak leaves, hidden away in the corner of a forgotten field somewhere, lie numerous spent shotgun cartridges of different colours along with the skull of an unknown four-legged mammal. Judging by the rusted brass bases of the shells and the rooted mosses covering the weathered bone, whatever the reason may have been for this killing, it has been lost to another generation a long, long time ago, leaving us with nothing more than a scattered memory to be found lying on a bed of fallen Oak leaves, hidden away in the corner of a forgotten field somewhere…

*Shot on a Canon 600d 18mp dSLR using a Tamron 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Di ll LD lens with settings at ISO-200, aperture at f/5, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/40 seconds*
