It looks like an introduction to a fairy-tale. When I look at it, I get a feeling that a dragon might fly through the picture at any moment :)

WOW......!!

This image has such a high dynamic range from the bright sunlight in the top left and the reflected light of the mist in the valley to the dark shadows in the foreground.

A technically difficult exposure to get right but here you have created an image that retains detail in the shadow area without blowing out too much of the highlights.

A dramatic piece of art with great atmospheric presence.

well if you went from the Lake district to kiwi land , you must feel at home

Difference between the two is in the lake district you can access all the land, public footpaths all over the uk. Here they do not exist, hence unless in national park etc, all your photography is done from the side of the road. I like to get into the landscape, be part of it, feel it, and try to convey that in my work.

I'm trying to think of a comment to capture what is going on in my head right now, but I just can't, I guess that is truly being speechless.

Thank you my friend, this shot however was taken in the UK, and I would love to be back there photographing it. New Zealand is good, but the UK has many more photo opportunities, you don`t realise until you have left, then spend your time wishing you were back there!!

Well, I understand what you mean, Simon. I lived in Colorado for a couple of years and there are so many things (people) - even skies - I regret. At that time I was missing France and my family : I am happy I came back since my dad happened to know my sons before He left. But, I am sure the best pictures are the ones we keep in our hearts. Besides, I someone from UK would come in New Zealand that very person would find your land wonderful to take pictures :) !
Take care, my friend, enjoy the day.

Graeme, thank you, this shot is actually in the Langdale Valley, Cumbria, and if the truths told, I regret leaving the UK, believe it or not photography there is so much better than here in New Zealand. Hopefully in not too distant future I will return and pick up where I left off!!
