A lonely trek

By MattK    
Taken at the peak of Scafell Pike in the Lake District. From the top you get a real sense of how small you are in comparison to what is around you.

I felt the climber/hiker in this photo gives a sense of size and scale and makes him look quite lonely against that backdrop.

Lovely dappled light and depth, Matt. If only you could turn the walker round so he's walking into the image.

Thank you both. I agree Dave - it is a shame I didn't think of this at the time and move so he was walking into shot from the right/left. Bit of an effort to go back up and try again though! My legs wouldn't cope with another climb up there for a while now!
