Another from my recent visit to Mam Tor. Slightly later on, and the sun made a burst through the clouds again.
More filter cleaning, plastic bags and curses were used in the making of this production!!

Excellent shot! I like the three lead in lines of the fence, rocks and path leading your eye through the shot to the hills in the background and that atmospheric sky!

This is a truly exceptional shot Martin, one of your best in my opinion and probably the best shot I've seen of Mam Tor, definitely worth the leg work on this one.

I'm not surprised you were pleased with this one Martin - one of your best for sure. I don't know if you've changed your processing recently, but your images in the last couple of months really seem to have stepped up a notch - and they were excellent before!!

Awesome stuff!
