Scafell Pike - From the Summit

By Andysnapper

Well, I made it. After much puffing and blowing, sweating and swearing we arrived at the summit to join the hundreds of others who were already up there...... It is a very popular mountain.
Was it worth it, well yes it was, the views across the whole of the Lake District were fabulous and the weather was perfect. I had also taken my Rolleiflex up to the top and so I shot off a roll of film, this is I think the best of that roll. I quite liked the solitary figure giving the shot some scale.

All I have to do now is get back down... the worst bit for me Sad

Your efforts were rewarded with a magnificent view and capture. As you say the inclusion of the lone figure adds scale to your image. However I might have been tempted to remove some of the rather uninteresting sky with a letterbox crop. "Just a thought"

WOW! No wonder the mountain is so popular with views like that. You are right, that solitary figure adds so much to this image - scale and stories for us to weave. Take my UA for your efforts and for this delightful image.
Lovely well composed image great colour and detail, SmileSmileSmileSmile
