Hi Steve, Thanks for complement, but one major difference here which is nothing to do with photography. I am in Porthmadog area a lot, which means that by laws of averages I'm going to be there on more good days than someone simply having a short holiday there. I climbed Snowdon last autumn, and only got one decent picture (No 15237140, "Crib Goch from Snowdon"). I climbed Cnicht earlier this year and got nothing decent (too misty). Your results from the mountains are much better than mine. You do a lot more walking than I do (7 Ben Nevis easily outranks 4 Snowdon). Nice thing about Panoramio is that we all live in different places, which gives us all different opportunities, which we can share.
In all honesty, this picture was luck. I went to the same place a couple of weeks ago, on a bright sunlit day, and this time the picture didn't work at all, simply because the smoke was blowing the opposite way.

Hi Peter yes what you say hits the nail on the head .. i live in lincolnshire one of the flattest parts of U.K so have to travel for my mountain fix :))
