Some shots taken around sunset a couple of weeks ago on the moors, here's the first one taken:

Looking back the other way, it's surprising how different the light is:

And then back to the first location again, just a few moments before sunset as the light is at it's most warm, there's another photographer wandered into the scene, but I decided not to clone her out :-)

Just wonderful. I love the rocky foreground, the grassy middle and the rocky horizon - I would love to see a panorama of this scene.

I love England - for a small island it has so much variety and beauty and history. Thanks for sharing your bit of it with us. More please!

Hi John! Great work as usual! I know what you are saying about the light, when you really start looking at light it really is amazing how it changes!

Thanks Ms Puck and Bob.

Ms Puck: I deliberately didn't take any panos at this spot 'cos there's a whole lot of very empty landscape to either side of the compositions here, however I have some panos taken in similar conditions nearby that I hope to post soon (when I've got them all stitched up!)

John.

In your captures I almost heard the lone tunes of the million year of stones watching over the moors...Thanks for sharing, John

I love the late evening sun light. I like the second one.. the stones almost have a purple hue to them... very nicely done.

Thanks for the comments Bahadir and Bill. Like Bill I think I prefer the second one as well.

Regards, John.
