Dead Eye's conversations

A grey day in the valley's, this was the best place to be in bright sunlight, the plume to the rear end of Ingleborough was continually flowing, the time was 1.12pm, anyone venturing up here should note that there are no obvious or marked footpaths, I followed a wall which provided stunning panorama views to the south and crossed it where a large snowdrift provided a way, my return route was across the peat bogs to the north east which is not too bad when frozen, an excellent short winter walk from the Cam Houses junction.

Returning to the car, peat bogs and snow filled sink holes lie ahead, there is no obvious route, frozen conditions kept our boots reasonably dry.

I would love to have been given the chance to take one of these out into the loch, I have however sailed my Albacore Persephone to Bute and Arran from here,

I have not produced many stitched photo's but neither of the two I took worked on their own, the hill centre right is Ingleborough and those to the far left are the mountains of the lake district, the stitching program removed camera info, 125th,F6.3,400asa,white balance set to shade,only shadows lifted slightly post edit no further adjustment.

Usually I'm out there taking part, but being OD(referee) and little wind meant I got to take photo's for once, and a great sunset to boot, sailing in these conditions is not much fun I have had a frog swim past me before now.

Every once in a while you take a photo that works and you don't really know why, perhaps it's just that moment in time.

Only adjustment to the camera is one stop underexposure, no post processing.

Taken with Ricoh R6 (RIP) great little camera abysmal build quality.

Ys & Like. This shot has everything! What more can I say? Best regards cheers scally.
