Pagan Dawn by Capturing-the-Light
Pagan Dawn
Finally I managed to wrestle myself away from the Wasdale Valley!! This is Castlerigg Stone circle at dawn, near to Keswick in Cumbria. don`t be fooled by the sky colours, it was bitterly cold indeed!

Thank you so much for viewing.

Moonlight Serenade by Capturing-the-Light
Moonlight Serenade
My favourite place once again, Wastwater taken by the light of a full moon on a very cold evening, but well worth being out and about. the moon was behind me and the exposure hit and miss! nigh photography is new for me so all advice welcomed.
Thank you for viewing.

Endurance by Capturing-the-Light
Endurance
This is taken on the edge of Wastwater Lake, the Scree directly behind. Everything wiped out of view by the snowstorm which engulfed the valley briefly. the sheep is a Herdwick, thehardy breed associated with Lakeland fells. Not my normal shotbut for me it captured the harsh elements that can arrive in an instant mixed with the strength of nature to survive them.
thank you for viewing.

Belated thanks to all who have visited my page, viewed my work, favourited  and commented, it is really appreciated. i apologise for the prolonged absence, its been unintended. Both Dawn and myself have had various ailments that required treatment, which curtailed all my activity on here.

I hope this year will prove not as eventful in that department, paricularly for Dawn.
I have alot of catching up to do, forgive me if its not done overnight!

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
I am a amateur photographer who became interested in predominanly early morning landscape photography when I bought my first canon eos digital camera. At the time I lived in the Lake District in England, and that inspired my interest in landscape photography. I then lived in New Zealand in an area where I took mostly early morning misty shots. After 6 Years though the lakes of Cumbria drew me back. I am very keen to engage with other serious photographers, all be it I am an amateur, to learn and develop my skills.

I would also like to thank my wife, Dawn, whose encouragement and support motivates me to get better each day as a photographer.
TO EVERYONE THAT VISITS MY PAGE, FAVOURITES WORK, PLACES A WATCH, A LLAMA BADGE OR COMMENT, I THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU. SADLY I AM NO LONGER IN A POSITION TO ANSWER YOU ALL INDIVIDUALLY, SOMETHING I ALWAYS PRIDED MYSELF FOR. I RECIEVE A HIGH NUMBER MOST DAYS AND CANNOT DEVOTE THE INCREASING TIME REQUIRED TO DO SO, DUE TO NUMEROUS PERSONAL AND WORK COMMITMENTS. PLEASE DO NOT PERCIEVE IT AS IGNORANCE AS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VISIT MY PAGE AND I HOPE YOU FIND SOMETHING INTERESTING AND THAT YOU ENJOY.

Current Residence:West Cumbria, United Kingdom
