The interesting part of this challenge is that many diagonal lines are also leading lines. Since we’ve already ‘done’ leading lines, I’ve tried to come up with some images that are all about the diagonal itself, rather than them being, even incidentally, leading lines too.
I think this is my favourite of this week’s selection:
The mast of a catamaran
And here are a couple of others:
The UAE Airforce display team celebrating a national holiday in Abu Dhabi
Snowmelt draining into a culvert close to Tranquility Base
And here are a couple of what Cee described as ‘implied diagonals’:
Bigger than your average bubble
A mother and child moment between two giraffes on Sir Bani Yas Island
Finally, my favourite images from earlier contributions to this thread. The first from the Vertical Lines challenge and the one on the right from Leading Lines (which, neatly enough, is also an implied diagonal):
Looking up inside an open lift, itself inside a roofless bell-tower in Sarlat
I have to saythat I’m completely in agreement with Cee when it comes not only to horizons but also other horizontal lines actually being horizontal; I use the Straighten Tool in Lightroom to correct my own errors – as far as possible.
Oradour-sur-Glane, with the Monts de Blond in the background.
Some other images featuring strong horizontal lines:
The sandstone from which is carved the many colossal monuments at Petra
Bottles of champagne waiting for their time to come in the cellars at Epernay
The ceiling of one of the chapels in St Mary’s Church, Beverley
Headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority in Abu Dhabi. I can see my old office…
Finally, a couple of other images with multiple horizons:
An old wooden fence marks a field boundary; about half a mile from here.
