I was really lucky here to get a rare view of the summit of Penyfan with no one else in the shot AND a clear view!!
(actually I fib - but I only cloned out 1 person!!)
Mari, Hi, well done you for getting up there, I would love to go. I had an idea that us Welsh lasses and lads could get together for trips, see posting in the forum re Ystradfelte. Let me know what you think and anyone else of course who would like to arrange a trip, you don't have to be Welsh !!!!
Great idea Alethea - we have so much fantastic photographic potential here on our doorstep - too good a chance to miss!
Mari, this is a stunning photo, think I need to come over the Severn Bridge sometime !
Thanks Margaret - you really should!
Not a car park in sight. Nice one Mari.
No Brian - I take all the credit for this one being definitely down to shanks's pony!
Very nice Mari, must be some view from the very top.
Thanks Terry - had a fantastic view this day but a bit hazy, but at least there was no cloud.
Been there two or three times and never had weather like this! Nice shot of a great place.
A 'click' for getting there Mari!
Just a thought, would leaving the figure in have given a sense of scale?
Thanks Tony and Ian. Ian - the person was literally a speck in the distance but you're right a person would have given it some sense of scale.
Great shot Mari. The path literally takes you into the shot and I like the way the land falls off to the left - well exposed to bring out the detail there.
I've never been to the summit so hats off for that. I know it's always busy so I have to ask, how many people do you push off the ridge to clear this view? They call that 'cloning' now, do they?
What a beautifully simple shot Mari...works well. Can't see where the cloning took place either!
It's nice to be reminded of how steep those sides are. Linda & I enjoyed the times we've walked here...but it's always been very crowded!
Great impact from simplicity.
Well Dave, perhaps one or two but most were on Corn Ddu eating their sandwiches at the time!!
Thanks Mike - the sides are really steep aren't they.
For me a person in-shot would detract the eye from this magnificent picture.
What a stunner,i love the lead in with the path taking you to the sumit,making you wonder what the view must be like from the top,excellent work.Alan
Good shot Mari. I'm never likely to get up there, so you won't be able to push me off. Where did all the people go, it's usually like Piccadilly Circus up there.
Thanks Alan - its a great view.
Thanks Gerwyn - you're right its normally heaving.
Lovely shot.....stunning in its simplicity..!!
I've been asking myself why I like it so much....maybe it's something to do with me having been born in the Gower...oops i've let that secret slip now..!!
Great shot, so simple but so effective. Really nice.
Very nice Mari and very very sharp. Great shot of a great place. I was there in the early 90's and it's an impressive place to be.
Couldn't we borrow just 1 of your hills for East Anglia? impressive photo.
Impressively massive, colourful and empty. Well done.
Thanks Phil, Gary, Rich Chris and Eric.
Phil - I knew there was a bit of Welsh in there somewhere!!
Chris if you flattened out all of the hills and mountains in Wales, it would be bigger than England!! lol I'm sure we could negotiate one small one!!
Wonderful shot, Mari....I'm in agreement with all the above!
An extraordinary image I feel due in no small part to its classic composition.
Good call to remove a distracting figure, not needed for scale, we have that with the stones and grasses stirring memories of similar journeys made.
A good reason to go to the hills with camera kit is to record a view for others less fortunate to enjoy, this image does that and more, it places the viewer on the hill and allows the mind to wander. A classic.
John, thanks so much for your feedback. Very much appreciated. I feel really lucky to be able to get places like this now and again.
Simply Great! (And excellent cloning).
Mari - a real stunner of a shot. I agree - no figures needed. However I like your 'cloning' technique and am taking notes .. would it work in London do ya think .. tee hee
Seriously - this is glorious. Real clarity, sense of scale, drama, grandeur, beauty. Love it.
Thanks George, and thanks too Suzi. May take you a while to clone out some of the population of London but it'd be good practice!!
Have been thinking about this shot Mari, why do I like it so much, apart from the title being spelt right I mean ) LOL
I have sussed it, it's the way the eye is led round the whole image, very simple but very very effective.
Well done great shot.....click from me.
Marty - I took ages going to sleep last night wondering if I had upset you by pointing out your spelling of the lake. As a Welshie It leapt out at me, sorry. Am I forgiven? Its such a beautiful image.
By the way - thanks for your great comment!
Me upset never still on cloud nine after recieving my 1st EC and PotW,
and WINNING THE WORLD CUP.....LOL
Well deserved too Marty ( and I mean the EC + potw NOT the World Cup!!)lol
Mari, what a stunning photograph, you've developed a good eye and your portfolio is looking damn good.
Keep it up.
Well thank you John, your comments are much appreciated.
Hi Welsh lady, love the shot of Pen-Y-Fan's summit different from the normal views of the mountain, i am a regular visitor to the Beacons as i live in South Wales.
Just popped back to have a bit more of a look at your portfolio, Mari.
This is a lovely one...(please, there's no need to acknowledge this)
