Castlerigg Stone Circle

By TanyaH
Virtually a straight scan, no colour correction just a minor Levels tweak. Taken early one morning, just as the sun was rising ... One small scratch in the sky cloned out (slide came back from the lab with the mark on!).

There's devotion for ya! What a wonderful pic! How early Tanya? I want to get Avebury like this, but might have to settle for a sunset Smile

Thank you both for your comments, they're really encouraging.

Collin - how early? Umm ... to be honest I can't remember as it was back in '97. But now you've got me wondering whether it WAS morning! I'm pretty sure it was though, as all my Lake District pics were taken while on a photographic 'holiday' with a company based in the Lakes, and there were several other people as well as myself who were around at the same time. And I seem to associate grumbling about 'ungodly hours' with this pic ...

Stunning shot I bet it would look really good blown up to A3, the web never does them justice at 40kb!

Beautiful picture, photos at Castlerigg were taken at the end of the day but show the same emotion as your picture...that this is one of the most peaceful places on earth.

Wonderful colours - kinda warm & rosy but at the same time electric - looks like a great morning to be alive

Many thanks - kidda, I did blow it up a bit for a friend's birthday, but only to A4. I think A3 may be pushing it a bit, as it's not completely pin-sharp. Cameraman - I agree, Castlerigg is a beautifully serene place. Craig - thankyou, I've never thought of this scene as electric before, but can sort of see what you mean.

Another great shot. Ive seen many photos of these stones on the net and magazines and this is one of the best. Great angle and colours. more impressive is no people or sheep

Cheers Matt. I'm one of these odd people that don't like adding figures to landscape shots very often (although sometimes useful to show scale) - I prefer the solitude and serenity of just the land itself.
