Burnthwaite by Capturing-the-Light Burnthwaite by Capturing-the-Light
Single photograph, then given the treatment in Nik HDR efex programme, using the single image setting, and a minor tweak in photoshop. HDR is not an area of knowledge I possess, I quite like the effect of this image though, and thought I would share it for your valuable feedback, which gives me a good indication of whether I am heading in the right direction.

Another shot from my first time of setting foot in the Wasdale Valley in over 5 1/2 years! Even after that time it has lost none of its allure and beauty for me. It was every bit as perfect as I remembered it. the only downsides were the weather, as the cloud was down covering the tops, and the wet and dampness that filled the air. But it was good to be back surrounded by those majestic mountains and watching the cloud, I say cloud as it was like one never ending big one all day long!

Sadly Dawn was not there to share the walk, but will be by the next time I visit.

This is shot looking up the valley from Wasdale Head end towards Great Gable, which you cannot miss, as you cannot see it!! its covered in cloud. The farm between the trees is National Trust property, a full working farm called "Burnthwaite Farm" which also has what looks from the outside a very inviting holiday cottage to rent.
Thank you so much for viewing this work, its not my best, I am really just sharing my excitement at being back in the valley I love!!
