Fells to the south west of Elterwater taken from the cattle grid 1/2 mile east of the village
The snow capped Pikes may follow but this one took my fancy
The reasonable weather didn't last long Sadand a couple of hours later we were enjoying a few pints of John's finest foaming ale in the Golden Rule in Ambleside warming our tootsies by the roaring fireTongue. Fish and chops followed as opposed to the Bolognese that was originally plannedWink

Thanks for the comments, always welcome and nice to read
As to photoshop, well yes it has a touch of photoshop
Just about about everything i do has an element of photoshop
I don't see it any different from a darkroom. I can't remember ever printing a negative without dodging, burning, cropping etc, to some extent, other than a quick print to assess what work was required
All I did to this was enhance the clouds a little and try to increase foreground detail a bit
But thanks for the comment, there is no such thing as bad criticism

Hoping to visit the Lakes later this year, and this is the sort of scene I can expect, than I can't wait. Simply bursting with atmosphere, and not a little degree of mysticism and magic.

Don't want to get into an argument with anyone, but if one shoots RAW then it is impossible to process the image without Photoshop or similar software. I cannot imagine life without it, and I agree: it really is no different from the darkroom processes of long ago (which, having been a film user for many, many years, I do not miss in the least!).

Regards.

Bob

Certainly is a great place to go to Bob, we go 2 or 3 times a year
you need to go well prepared cos I'll swear it has it's own microclimate that does NOT resemble the BBC forecasts ! ! !
But as Wainright said there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing
You will enjoy it no matter what
I used to love my darkrom, but it is so much easier now.....and nowhere near as smelly....Aaahhh the good old days!!!
