Buckstones Evening

By andy_AHG    
The Buckstones on Marsden Moor, which was once the hang out of robbers and highway men. Looking towards March Haigh, on which mesolithic hunters made their camps. These days you are more likely to find a paraglider dangling in your field of view, than a highway man. However, at least, even on a freezing November afternoon, you can still get an ice-cream in the car park!

Big thanks to efactsphoto for the GEA on my image 'Twin Peaks'. Very much appreciated.

Lovely lighting and colour.

The rocks provide foreground and a lead in. The light is beautifully captured Andy.

Superb compositional balance and excellent interplay of light and shadow across the scene, Andy.

Would take a hardy chap to walk across the buckstones in the cold chill of winter and an even hardier one to have an ice cream as well.
