Awe inspiring! It gave me chills when I looked at it in full view. Yes, chill bumps all over! What a fantastic display of so many things. Vigorous determination, great strength and perseverance, the awesome power of our creator, and the perspective to see just how small we really are in the midst of it all. Somehow between the light and the dark, the small and the mighty, this capture is really profound! It speaks to me with significant force! Excellent and effective work. It's more than a just a photograph to view, but one to really FEEL. I love it!
With great admiration, Mary Alice

Hello Mary Alice, I am so pleased you found this photograph so captivating... If I have managed to capture something of the grace of the Lake District (the only part of England we can call 'mountainous'!) then, my word, you have the power to express it all in words. It is a joy to read!

When I saw the figure at the foot of the hill, I didn't see the metaphor... All I saw was "Oh, God, another hill!". I saw those words because that is what I thought!

Hello Karin - The Wainwright Walks are special.. I managed to miss most of them so I was happy when the BBC released them on DVD... I don't remember watching the Cat Bells walk though... so I will watch it tonight!

Don't worry about spooling mistakes!!!
