The 'tog at the Tor.

By chrisco
Went for a ride to the peaks early Sunday morning as the weather was promising to bring some good conditions,so headed straight to Mam Tor.As you can see I wasn't the only one with that idea,there were around 5 other 'togs there at the same time!,so instead of getting annoyed about people encroaching into my shot ;( ,I incorporated one into my picture.Dont know what they got but I was quite happy with my result Smile ,great conditions and a great morning.
Any c+c's appreciated,
Large is good if you have the time,

Stood there many a time, but I know it's not me as I was at Chatsworth!!

No mist at around us, so you were luckier and the light is fabulous. I like the inclusion of the figure to what is a well balanced photo.

They don't come much if any better than this.
The inclusion of the tog balances the shot superbly. And the cement works and the mist gently revealing the landscape in the distance make this a top quality piece of Photography.
Pleased you found your way there in the end and it was well worth the journey.

A fine shot and the figure makes a great silhouette. That's why I wondered if it would work in mono, hence the mod.

This is just stunning. I love the inclusion of the photographer and also the plumes of smoke coming up through the bands of mist.

Beautiful mood Chris.The "Tog" adds to the composition.Well done.

I wish you had given this just a bit more space at the top, but what you did get in the frame is quite magic.

Some lovely light in here but gotta agree with Koen that it needs a touch more space up top.

Cracking shot Chris and all the better for having the other 'tog in there. Conditions look superb.

This absolutely stunning. Fantastic light and colours. The shadows on the mist are wonderful.
My only crit is that it seems a tiny bit cramped at the very top of the frame. Other than that it looks like one of those perfect moments when everything just fell into place. Well done.

Hi,thanks all.The reason for the tight crop is that the sky (what little there was in the photo) wasnt adding anything to the shot,so I decided to do away with it.Believe me it makes the composition stronger,
