I thought I knew you from somewhere!

Thank you Martin I dabble with HDR to try and emulate the dynamic range we all enjoyed when slides (which this is) we the vogue. My main regret is not posting this with more pixels.

I use QTPFSGUI, what HDR program do you use? I enjoy your work.

Warmest regards from North Carolina

Ah Martin you see that is the problem. You can take the man out of Yorkshire, but never the Yorkshire out of the man.

What are the chances of me paying for a software product when an inferior product is free?

Such is my lot. Keep up the good work!

Decided to look at some of your old Mountain photos Jethro. This is a fine photo, and reminds me of my days as a warden at Wasdale youth hostel. On one of my days off I trekked in the dark and through a storm to camp high up the valley to the left of Yewbarrow. During the night I had to crawl out to replace several pegs that pinged out from the flysheet! What crazy, but exciting things we did back then! Best wishes old chum - Jim

I knew not about the warden story Jim. I never stayed at that hallowed hall (and it was hallowed in our circles). But I too have spent many a night like your'n. What year (approx) was that? Was it a Force Ten?

I am glad you like this shot. It has something, but I'm not sure what.

Best wishes old buddy - Jethro

Hi Jethro. It was in 1973, and yes it was a Force Ten tent Mk.3, considered a relative lightweight at 10lbs back then! I just Googled Vango tents, and was amazed to see that they still make the classic Force Ten range, and even in cotton. I guess you cant beat a good basic design!

I think its the snow on the distant peaks, and the magical low evening light catching Yewbarrow, that makes this picture. But for me the sheer nostalgia it evokes, counts a lot! Great to be able to re-live such good memories through mountain photos like this. All the best - Jim

Wow, 73 huh? I had bought our Mk3 about 75 or so. The panels blew out of the fly in the mid 80s in Glencoe I reckon. We also have a Mk5 with the extended fly, suitable for a base camp with children that we no longer have!

Great memories. Thanks for that Jim

From a sunny 36deg Pretoria , nice and cool. At first I thought it is in Scotland , I zoomed out and see it is way south of Edinburgh ! I opened Google Earth ... Our schools made it easy - England = Flat ,Wales=Rowling hills , Scotland = Mountains . Good to see what we learn.

David Brown Photogra… on February 1, 2013

Well, its in the bumpy bit of England (but only just). Your schools over-simplify it, but then don't they all.


You made me smile this early morning (which is a good thing Stefan) - best wishes from a 30F (-1C) North Carolina - David
