Wasdale from Gable

By JohnEW  
For those who know this route, this rock is not "Moses' Finger", but one a bit further along the Great Gable south traverse "path" heading east toward Sty Head between 1500 and 2000 feet above the valley. This shot was taken in July last year at the start of the heat wave.

This is my first proper attempt at HDR/tone mapping & is from -3, -1 & +1 exposure compensations from a single RAW. Although not an ideal way to do things (although carrying a tripod or using it on this terrain is not an attractive proposition), it is much better than the result from a single file. 22mm f/9 1/125 ISO100

Great shot, the small version doesn't do it justice.

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. Ian, the "lead in" is actually part beck & part path (Lingmell Beck). It's important not to mix them up when walking down there ;>}

I understand NONE of the technical stuff, but I know this is an amazing shot. You've managed to capture the sheer scale, depth, brilliant.
