Award Shortlist   

Dark and Light

By jeanie      
Number 4 from the weekend and one from our walk up to Twistleton Scar.. The weather started off wet but we were blessed with some great light once we arrived here.. was worth getting up early for.
Angie, Dougie, Katy, Mark, David, myself and of course, Jura all wandered up to the pavement and bumped into Fran, Paul, Richard Wheeler, Melanie M, and Mr & Mrs Edgar..
Lunch, once off the top, was at the Marton Arms , down the road from the pavement - thoroughly recommended if you like plates the size of bin lids for a very reasonable price Smile

Love the contrast between the rather dark sky and the light on the foreground.

So - two groups of EPZ members, and not even for an official meet. We're really dominating the photogenic parts of the UK's landscape sometimes, aren't we!

Works well in portrait format. Like the contrast between the light rocks in the fg and that threatening sky, and the way the tree is almost in silhouette.

Thanks John, Les, Andy, Keith and Angie..

LOL Keith - the mods were hand held- tripod being held helped when taking proper shots Smile as for cost - between £4.50 and £7 for the meals.. Wink

Angie... would I??? No it was your beloved who took the pic!!! Wink

20 Jan 2009 4:37PM
that's a nice shot! I think I'd crop away the lower 1/5, however that might be just me. It would also be very interesting to see this in B&W.

20 Jan 2009 4:37PM
Super Jeanie. My kind of LST.(My kind of lunch too!)

20 Jan 2009 5:55PM
well now I'm with you Smile yeah, that looks really good. Would still like to see it without the lower 1/5 part of the photo, I think it would make a cleaner overall presentation.

Lots of "clicks" - one for the main image, one for those gorgeous, gorgeous images of Jura (I think I'm in love) and another for the willpower and fortitude of all those people in their efforts to eat their way through such obscene piles of food!
