Mysterious and atmospheric, your processing with grain really adds to the feeling of this image and gives it a timeless quality appropriate to the nature of this magnificent megalithic structure. Also a favourite location for me. Great image, Alan.

Definitely haunting, Alan. Most unusual to see Castlerigg sans visitors, though I wouldn't have been haunting it at that time of the morning.
Beautifully proportioned crop.

Five minutes drive from where I was staying, Bill. Pre-breakfast 'shoots' are anathema to me these days.BlushGrin

I've never got a decent picture there, it's probably the only place where I don't want people. This is grim and gritty. The stones have a presence, not unfriendly but then they have safety in numbers. Love the crop, the top of the frame bearing down like the mist.

Try what I may I've not got a decent pic of this place, but then I'm not the best at landscapes! This is a lovely image of a wonderful place. Like it!

A difficult location to do justice to Alan but you've certainly pulled it off....hauntingly beautiful.

Don't think I'd be going here today Alan. Nice use of the pano format it just suits the circle and the grain compliments the misty hills giving the stark bleakness of the area.

Excellent image Alan and I follow Nigel's example

Beautifully atmospheric Alan; it works wonderfully in that format!
I bet it would look great as a big print.

Very atmospheric with the added grain - a place I didn't know about
and like the Pinnacles in W.Australia - there seems no rhyme or reason for this stone circle.
must check it out.

P.S. Looked at those painters you suggested and loved their work.
Keep on teaching me.

Haunting and atmospheric. You can almost feel the presence of the past.
