Where my heart lies, my dreams float and feet used to walk.

Hi Skida super shot wonderful reflection regards.

skida on January 9, 2009

I missed your comment Mike, but I know exactly what you mean.

skida on January 9, 2009

Thank you so much MuhSaPo

Thanks blai. I think I will replace this shot when I am able to scan the negative. This copy has a lot of grain on it.

Keith I feel the grain enhances the shot.It gives the thing a mysterious magical feeling, in a way.

You must find it rather difficult driving your Bus and doing the Pano thing at the same time!!

May I write some rhyme for this shot? I got a few lines through my head just looking at the view,which is a 'looking back' shot, right-toward Crummock water? (I see Melbreak in the distance)

Smashing: inspired I humbly post this one taken just a tad higher up but looking the same way.

Thanks for the comment and link Jethro - it is a remarkable place isn't it?

skida on January 10, 2009

Mike: Maybe you are right about the grain, but I will compare it with a scanned negative before deciding. I think the grain here is from that awful textured photo paper that had a short vogue back then. Go ahead with the verse.

Just beautiful, Keith! I will have to go back there again on one of my next stays in England! Best greetings, May

skida on January 11, 2009

Thanks May. It is much less busy than the Windermere-Grasmere-Keswick tourist area and we liked it a lot.

Yes, that's what I noticed, when taking photos! I think you have seen them before. May

skida on January 11, 2009

I have seen some and I keep finding more on Google Earth! It is always a pleasant surprise when I find a "new" one.

trikermike on January 12, 2009

Oh! wasn't that a bad idea Keith, just shows how tastes change , eh?

I think you dun a guid job hear, like

Grain or no grain Skida, this still a most evocative capture. It shows the lake-lands up in a most beautiful and almost mystical way. We are now so fixated on the perfect shot, that many photos have lost the essence that the photographer first wanted to capture.

Greetings, Amelia

skida on January 23, 2009

Many thanks Amelia. Your words ring true with me. I see so many "formula" landscape shots that sometimes leave me unfulfilled, then I see one "honest" shot which speaks volumes. I like your gallery, which I will visit again soon.
