Definately my last upload of this year, my wifes been incapacitated since before Christmas with a bad back and so didn't think I'd be able to get out over the Christmas holiday but managed to sneak out for a couple of hours in the afternoon on Boxing Day when the in-laws came round to take over for a while.

It was a great place to be but very windy, had to brace myself (I'm not the smallest of people) and the camera/tripod to stop it being blown over. The cloud was constantly breaking producing amazing shafts of light and it was just a matter of time to wait for the perfect moment (hence the title) when one hit the 'Knuckle Stone' and Carhead Rocks. I've got a few from this location so you have been warned Grin

Many thanks for looking and all the best for the New Year. I'll be out in the Peak watching the sun rise (hopefully) on the New Year, its become a bit of a tradition for me!

I think your composition in this shot is very good with a lot of f/g interest and detail spread across the lower half of the frame, and with wonderful light on the stones: there is also patches of sunlight falling here and there over the middle distance, and the colours at this time of the year are excellent. Of the four images in this posting and the next 3 versions, I would rate this one here and V 1 of the next set about equal in composition and my favourites, but of course that's just my opinion and others will see things differently, i suppose.
Happy New Year,
Ronnie.

Thanks Ronnie for taking the time to comment on this upload and the proceeding one. I'm of the same mind with regards this image and the next V1 version. I feel these are the strongest images with regards composition. I've just finished calibrating my monitor thanks to my wife's Xmas pressie and it's made a huge difference and has shown that the colours I feel are a little too saturated, something that I will now be able to correct in future uploads.

To everyone who has not had their monitor calibrated or feel that it won't make that much difference I strongly recommend that you have it done, it does make a huge difference.

All the best!

Chris

Very nice Chris. You've caught some great light there, not to mention framing the scene superbly.
