Been a wee while since I've posted on here. A rather damp few months in Cumbria - half a dozen from a couple of nice damp mornings.

Nice to see your work again Mark. 2,3 and 4 are my favourites, the others don't seem to have the same punch. Do you go for B&W now or are these just a coincidence?

Excellent set. 2, 4 and 6 for me.
That "fences" win on another Pentax forum looked suspiciously like one of yours too.....
What time do you have to get up in the mornings to see this stuff?

I've been doing a lot more mono Barrie. I'm not sure why that is. Coincidence with these as they were more of a natural set. I still do a bit of colour but I haven't been doing big colourful scenes for a bit. This one below is as colourful as I've bee for a while

Thanks Mark - yes the $100 will come in nicely if it covers more than just postage. I can have a lie in till nearly six now if I'm going local. When I took the bales I was at Haweswater at 5.30am - planned shot would have been a 40 minute walk to get in position but conditions weren't right so came away - did Ullswater en route to the bales. I did the boathouse en route.

Nice deep colours for a misty morning. Must be that 10 stop ND again?

The Lee Big Stopper was better for cooler colours but broke it in a tumble down a waterfall. It was in an inside chest pocket at the time. The B&W is still going strong but a bugger to use and the warm tinge can be a nuisance.

Well whatever you're doing, it's working.
I'm not jealous......

Nice to see these

I particulalrly like the last one

I may need to learn how to do this just so I can get some shots through our gloomy Welsh winter

Love the misty mono Lakeland shots Mark. Those last two in the first set are exceptional.
The London Millenium Bridge and St Paul's is superb colour and I even like your Ullswater boathouse shot. Because I've seen it so many times in camera club competitions and Northern Counties Photographic Federation exhibitions its an image that normnally pass by quickly. But your version is one of the best I've ever seen.

Simply stunning set

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

I don't normally photograph it for that exact same reason. I think I've done it three times. A previous version just got a third place in one of the various categories in the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles. I don't think they'd seen it before.....

A great set, I love the moody BW images. Who needs sun anyway...

Cheers, Kris.

Beautifully photographed and processed, every one of them. It would be churlish of me to choose a favourite.

I'm still on a steep learning curve with regard to Lake District Landscapes and recently did a 4am start with Mr. Wilson (Puma) to do some Ullswater mist shots, some of which have appeared on here. Looking at yours Mark, I still have a little to learn!
