Something a little different I thought.
Taken last Sunday at Stanage.
Not sure who this is, but I saw some potential in the shot and took it.
Hope you like it.

Comments welcome.

Apart from the figure being very central, wonderful light on the landscape.

Beautiful lighting, lovely exposure, nice contrast between the warm light and shadow of the forground and the more subtle brightness of the light-filled mists of the background.
