Sometimes when out and about, the power of natural light can be quite amazing.

The sun at this point broke under a thick cloud illuminating the land with the most powerful light I've ever seen - so much that I couldn't even see through the viewfinder!

Nothing at all has been done in post processing to this photo, apart from a quick sharpen.

I'd appreciate some proper honest feedback on this one if you fancy it...

cheers

Lovely light and a nice composition. The sky is stunning and that makes this photo extra eye cathing.

This is the magical light that landscape photographers crave. You've captured it extremely well.

My only suggestion - maybe you could clone out the telephone poles?

thanks for the comments everyone.

Mike: I thought about cloning the telegraph poles but decided they gave the image scale.

It's a cracking shot Rich, well deserving of the HC.

The foreground light and the way it picks out the grasses and the rock is excellent and inspired. I like the dark background as I feel it helps draw attention to the beautifully lit foreground.

This is as honest as I can be, as I don't feel personally that there is much to criticise.

thanks guys.

Martin, originally I wasnt sure about this one, however I personally liked it.

Often I like images more that have a meaning to me or, if they were captured in difficult conditions I like them better than if it was an easy capture - I didn't know if this was the case with this photo.

For me Rich, I'm not a natural, so there's no such thing as an easy capture. I always seem to struggle with exposures, compositions, etc but like you say, makes it more rewarding when you get something good out of it.
