Something a bit different for me today - same place, but an image I wouldn't normally have uploaded Smile

I certainly didn't intend to capture all the flare around the sun, but decided I quite liked the effect so processed it anyway and, while doing so, I noticed a person on their way up to the stacks so have cropped that bit and blown it up as V2 to give you some idea of the scale of these amazing rocks.

It may not be the best image I've ever taken, but I hope you find it interesting anyway Smile

Thanks again to those of you who taken the time to vote and comment on my recent uploads and special thanks to Hazelmouse for the GEA on my last image.

I like the view point Sue, and the dramatic Light from the watery Sun. Great idea to use V2 for giving an idea of scale, what an amazing sight to see, it must be awesome to actually be there.

A very impressive location, and impressive to get there. Great image and the flare adds to it.

Great atmosphere Sue and that person certainly gives a sense of scale.

Stunning capture, Sue, think the inclusion of the sun and its flare adds to shot Smile As spectacular as it is, unless you've actually visited this location, it's difficult to image the scale of the rocks, so it's good to see someone climbing up there as you've shown us with the closer view in V2 - how tiny they look! Wink.

Superb shot !!!.....cracking strong composition, with great lighting !!!......not bothered by the flare, if anything
it adds an extra bit of 'sparkle' to the image !!.......top notch !!

Well worth uploading !!!!!!!!!!!!.Smile

It's been about 20 years since I last stood at the foot of the 'Old Man' !!.....what fabulous memories !!Smile
