amazing what a difference a few miles makes, the sky was blood red over at stanage and yet curbar has lovely pastel hues in the sky. good stuff martin

btw, is the bluetak a new technique you're trying or did you just forget the holder?

Thanks for the comments/clicks.
Rich, the blu tack is because I only have a Cokin A series filter system, and as you will know, the Sigma is too wide angle for this, so the only way I can use filters until I can get some new filters/holders/adapter ring is to use blu tack to hold the filters in place! Bit Heath Robinson, but what the hell.
Cheers
Martin

Excellent, Martin - the warm light on those foreground rocks has been beautifully captured. I've heard of the blu-tack technique being used by published landscape photographers: looking at this image, it's a technique that clearly works!

Fantastic Shot! The colours in the sky are beautiful especially in the lare version and the detail and colour of the moss excellent. Nice composition.

Hello Martin, a lovely sky with the rock composition bold and dominant but a little distant detail which injects good depth...exposure looks as if flash was used?

Thanks everyone.
No flash Doug, but did use a lighting effect filter, to give a touch more detail to the f/g rocks.

Love the precision of the title. In fact I could tell it was 7.20 - it had that certain light to it that could not be 7.19 and yet wasn't quite light ehough yet to be 7.21 LOL. Good work. Nick.
