Hello Alun,

your image is truly stunning!

A wonderful composition, that is very atmospheric - if that's the right word!

The location is beautiful.

Almost bypassed this in the thumbnail. Bloomin' glad I had a proper look because it's a corker of an image and a different take on a popular location. Nice one.

Thanks Andy and glad you dropped in to view it, Fraser. Much appreciated.

Wonderfully atmospheric. When you see the hills in cloud like this, I've always understood why people thought that gods lived on mountain tops!

A superb landscape with a very different f/g to most views seen of the Old Man. A most attractively composed image with strong lead in lines from the stream. The pinacle hghlighted with the darker cliff behind could not be better.

What a fantastic scene, Alun! The sun in the foreground and the gloom in the background. Love the colors and the diagonal lines - goes into my favorites.

Oh I remember that walk!! We did it in the snow, and it was soooo hard!! Sad
It's a better shot than any I managed, as the conditions were dire for us also!

Thanks guys. At the top the winds were incredible. I was able to lean into the wind at a 45 degree angle! There was no way any shot was possible even with the tripod legs splayed wide. After the walk through the woods in pre-dawn darkness it was a disappointment but this shot reminded me of the importance of glancing behind you!
I bet it would have been great in the snow with the right light, Phil. Thanks all for the votes and comments.

Spectacular crag caught in the splash of sunlight, lucky indeed my friend.

Fantastic moment of light and cloud.

Thanks a lot. There's nothing quite like the light that follows a good downpour.
