Twistleton scar positioned high up in the Yorkshire Dales, one can only marvel at the spleandor of the place. I see now why neolithic man revered it so much particularly the effect the sun has on the limestone as it rises over Ingleborough.

I would hazard a guess that the position of the nearby cairn (not in shot) is so that the Sun rises just on the pinacle of Ingleborough on the Winter solstice.

I set myself two projects the main one was to get a panoramic view (just need to process now) and the second one was to try not to use filters for a couple of images (this been one) to see if manual exposure blending offered any benifits, at least ones that can outway the extra processing time.

Taken in the great company of Les Forrester (LesF), Les was kind in his comments on a recent image from here, it wasn't "us" that panted and puffed to the top - it was me; it made me realise how unfit i've become in the last couple of years, so the gym kit has been found and the membership (unused) has been dusted off.

You have to come up with something different to set this well known scene apart from the rest. The sky's done this for you. Beautiful shot.

Err because after the hike up you just found enough strength to get the camera and tripod out, then couldn't lift the filters LOL

Fine capture of the early morning light Nick

Not quite as sold on this one as the others mate. Tends to feel a little dark in the middle ground, I think this could've been lifted tonally to reveal a little more detail!!!

EDIT: Just spotted the portrait version and that's more like it!!!

Yep your right Paul (as always), I processed the other after this, and have another version of this that I will put up at some stage ( also slightly cooler and more punch in the sky). Marked it as helpful so hopefully will turn green.

I prefer this format Nick, and although it could benefit from the same processing as the portrait version, it is a shot I would have been well chuffed to have taken.
