Default Making the best of a few dull days.

Spent a few days in the English Lake District last week. The weather wasn't too kind this visit, one day there was 8 inches of rain a few miles from where we were staying, not quite as bad where we were.

However, I managed a few reasonable shots of Ennerdale Water (first and second below), and of the standing stones at Castlerigg, just above the town of Keswick. The stone circle is c5,000 years old, more here: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/v...ircle/history/

Needless to say, I had to do a little post-processing in Lightroom, given the lack of sunlight, but there's nothing un-natural about the final results, that's just how they looked on the day.

All taken with the 12-60 SWD, ISO 200, f4.0

Nice pictures, given the weather. The last two are my favorites, the landscape there is very unique, and you have captured it well.

Really love the light in the last one, great capture. How does it look if you lose a little of the foreground, just a thought but may make it rock even harder?!

Thanks for all the comments. Landscapes are much easier when the sun shines, especially when there are white, fluffy clouds in the mix.

I think you might be right, Mark, that the last shot could lose most of the grass in the foreground. I probably thought at the time that the standing water might be more interesting than it turned out. I'm pleased with the way the sun's rays turned out, though.

As all have said, well captured, really nice, and thank you for the link to the stone circle page, most interesting.
