When we stopped off at Keswick en route from South Wales we enjoyed a couple of hours without rain. Just time for a stroll out to Friar's Crag and a photo or two.

So beautiful and moody, Bill. And so cool that low light afforded you 1/800th sec! Although the -1/3EV and ISO200 helped a bit. You must have good glass too! Niiice.

I love the mood captured here Bill, this is a REAL winner.

The branches across the top set this off well but I find the patch of bright sky a touch distracting. Slight adjustments in shadows/highlights tones that down a little and combined with an equally slight adjustment to levels, there's quite a bit of detail hiding in the foreground.
Just my opinion.

Atmosphere is everything for some images Bill and this shot has it in spades! Great comp, lovely tones - Fabulous!
kind regards,

Dark and moody, but still inviting... a fabulous image, like the different layers in the image.
Thank you so much for the postcard. It was a very pleasant surprise! All the more as this is my fav. lighthouse in Germany.
