Buckstones Edge

By ade_mcfade      
Another view of the huge boulders at Buckstones.

Just after taking the last one I posted, this huge cloud appeared behind me and ate the sun - then started spitting at me - charming.

Set the tripod up fo this last shot of the day - this one is looking towards Oldham from the stones.

it's a blend of 2 exposures cause I forgot my grad filters. Also, it's flipped horizontally too - the stones were really on the right, but it just felt better this way round....

cheers - it was quite light behind me in this shot - hence the rocks near to being fairly light.

Nice shot and a good blend. Only niggles are the black thing top left corner and the white thing peeping out from behind the rocks about half way up.

Top left aside you've also got a big dark splodge in the sky/land just along the ridge.

I've fixed the splodge and vignette and it's on my photopoints account if you care to look for it - I can't leave a link as it's banned. I'm called adrian wilson on there, shock horror - I'm not really called "McFade".....
