    The 1st is good but I'm with Rau on this one, the 4th is the best IMO, great textures!!

    Once again, thanks everyone for your kind comments.

    Thanks Gaz but the truth is that the clouds were moving so rapidly that things were changing constantly. It was more a case of just managing to catch something before it moved on, rather than hanging around waiting for ages. That first shot of the Fairfield Horseshoe was taken during a very brief moment when the clouds lifted and the light tracked across the valley in seconds. Very shortly after the clouds dropped again and I was unable to see anything further than an arms length.

    I was lucky that the weather was very changeable the week that I was there. It makes for dramatic lighting. I tried to spend as much time as possibble up on the fell tops but I kept walking. It was too cold to hang around waiting in the wind for too long.

    Love the 1st like everyone else, but the last has something for me, I dont know what it is though, just the feeling of the picture works very well, almost spiritual.

    Definitely got soaked one day but frost bite wasn't a problem. Not getting blown off the fell top was a worry once or twice though :D :D How that first shot ended up sharp I have no idea.It was blowing a hoolie at the time.
