I ran myself ragged that morning trying to get as many shots as possible during the brief respite from the rain. The composition for this one was immediately apparent. Thanks for looking and have a good weekend.

Thanks a lot. That morning has made up for the fact that the rest of the trip was a total washout.
Ann - really chuffed to receive your badge. Thanks a lot. It's strange, I can decide very quickly whether I like other people's images but alwaysfeel unsure about my own Grin

Rich autumn/winter colours here, Alun: a fine composition and reflections on what looks like an icy surface, and that band of cloud separating the treeline from the fells beyond could not be better placed.
I'd have had a ball there too had I been lucky enough to be there.
Hope there's more to come.
Ronnie.

Lots of horizontal layers giving lots of depth and working really well with the landscape framing. Can't believe how autumnal the colours are only 2 days ago. Two days later up here and all is white as far as the eye can see! Grin

Ahh, the Langdale Pikes, and a composition that I've not personally seen before. I love this one. Crisp and sharp and reminds me of the many times I've run over their tops!
