Afternon Delight

By MrsS    
This is another upload from my solo sojourn last Saturday to find a photogenic location nearer to home. Paul doesn't think this appears to be an inspiring spot, But I really like the view from the ledge over Chipping Vale, across to the fells beyond. He has also said that this is probably his favourite one that I took from here.

I parked at the top of Jeffrey Hill and wandered up the footpath. I'm very grateful to the Powers That Be for putting in these stone direction posts (as I'm sure the walkers are) Smile

1/25sec @f18 ISO100 f/l 17mm Lee .9 ND soft grad.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look, off to Bridge tonight, enjoy whatever you are doing, don't forget to get that "Special Someone" something nice ready for tomorrow Wink

Shame about the haze but apart from that it's a well composed and exposed view.

Thanks Robin, Andy, Richard, Kris and Di Smile

I quite like the haze Kris, but it's a good job we don't all like the same thing, isn't it! Smile

Love the light Fran it looks a great spot, but on first looking I thought a crop from the left to put the stone post near to the left would help but not sure now after putting a piece of paper over that bit
think it's just me

Thanks Carol, Sean, Glynnis, Alan and Tony Smile

I tried that crop too, Glynnis, but then decided I liked those two clumps of grass too much to crop one out Smile

I like the haze too Fran, nd I think it has a warm feel to the image as well.

The view is great and I love the post as a lead in, the shadows are lovely too.

Stunning shot - I think I agree with both you & Paul. The landscape isn't what makes this shot for me, it's the bands of colours with the wonderful sky and the warm evening light producing the long shadows.

This has a wonderful soft calmness to it Fran, which I am sure is down to that amazing light you have managed to capture.
What a fantastic view.
