Some better light than this to come aswell Paul Wink

I have an aversion to working full stop Fran, but unfortunately have to do it sometimes.

Oh dear Phil [jeanie's right though!]

I did have to do the 'photographers mad run' to get to this spot Ian, it all happened a bit too quick but I knew where I wanted to be luckily
Such a stunning view.

Looked good at the time, and looks great here as well.

Thanks for the lens loan, and yours (and Martin's) great company this morning, thoroughly enjoyed it..

I like my "rug"!!Smile
Just looking at them now, they seem OK, just not as wide a view as normal!
I was up there myself saturday morning, got a very similar shot to this one. I'll give it a few days! That was a spectacular morning and you've pulled a superb shot out of the bag with this one.

Great stuff Richard, fantastic light. The Peaks are amazing in the snow. I haven't managed to get down there as much as I'd have liked this week.

Lovely light Rich - was nearly there myself, but decided instead to head closer to home as Dunham Massey. Umm... not sure which was the better choice now Wink

Can vouch for the beautiful light....was down t'other end at Stanage Smile
You've done well to catch the texture in the snow. Nice to see a shot that doesn't rely on the footpath.
