Casting Shadows

By sut68      
After waiting a while at Castlerigg, things were looking a little bleak for some decent light but looking at the patches of light dancing on the distant fells there was also the odd glimmer of hope ... it was just a waiting game. I set the tripod up and readied myself just in case the light did materialise.

In the meantime I put on the 70-200mm lens onto my other camera body and went off a little to shoot a combination of detail shots, some sheep grazing in the next field and some distant shots where the light was hitting the ground on the fell tops.

Without much warning the clouds broke and Low Rigg began to catch the patchy light, slowly the light advanced to the stones of the stone circle ... lovely jubbly!!!

cracking image Paul, very unusual to capture such natural but strong contrasts imo, but striking because of it,

Cheers Ben, the darker bgnd was assisted a little more by some extra grad pushed down to just above Low Rigg to accentuate the moody sky and the contrast between lit and unlit ... glad you like it Smile

Certainly worth the wait Paul, I've never been so lucky up there but maybe I don't have your patience.
