Dark Over Light

By jeanie      
A view from inside the stone circle at Castlerigg across to Skiddaw when I took a trip up there the other weekend…the light was just wonderful. I wanted to try to get some reflections in the puddle..
I was entertained while standing here by a group of Japanese tourists who arrived, came to ask me what I wase doing, proceeded to take photos of the camera on the tripod and spent the rest of their visit there photographing Jura …hehe. Jura obliged of course and posed for them.. I should have told them to pay him in Bonios!

Everything on this capture is so neat and tidy, in its place, almost as if someone vacuumed around the rocks LOL and dusted the hills. Great clarity and beauty.
