Standing Tall

By richardwheel  
Sorry about the deletion and repost, and thanks for those who clicked and commented but I'd not given the photo the curves tweak it needed - anyway, here it is again....

It's been about a year since I was last at the trig point on stanage, and I thought it was about time I had another bash at it. I finally got a photo of it that I'm happy with.

It had been raining so the colours of the gritstone went really dark which I liked as it added to the mood.

Cheers for having a look...
