A couple of people asked me why I hadn't uploaded anything from the Lakes meet last week ... I think we were spoilt the day before with some gorgeous light on Twistleton, but here goes I suppose.

Taken at Castlerigg when a little colour manifested itself in the sky ... needed some light in the valley or foreground to make it 'pop' ... but that never came when we wanted it to.

Have a great weekend folks,
Paul

What was the problem, Paul... weren't you well enough to summon the light Gods for a second day??? Agree, the light just didn't play ball like we would have hoped it would, but you still managed to pull off a pretty impressive image all the same. And besides that (and freezing our fingers off) we also had a great time!!! Smile

Lovely capture Paul. Its got bags of atmospeher, particuarly like the moody sky with a little bit of colour, and the variation in colour of the hills with the snow acting as a nice contrast - really like it mate gets my vote. Cheers David

LOL, no Paul ... worn out from the day before ... still we got better conditions than were forecast though Smile

No tree this time Dave, but I do have one or two more processed if you're feeling withdrawal symptoms Tongue

Nope Mark, memory card does have a few shots on, just not any with decent light in the scene.

Cheers all,
Paul

I think we used all the good light here the day before, Paul.

Actually, I might have got a good shot on the Sunday if they had danced around a bit, Janet, but come to think of it, there were some rituals going on!

Like my first visit last year, I waited 90 mins for the light, even though there was loads everywhere else! I bet it was a bit cool up there too! Smile

6 seconds this one Dave, that Pro Glass ND works beautifully mate. As for the Blea tests, I can't get the colour to go either Dave, probably have to resign myself to it being good for mono's.

Thanks guys,
Paul
