Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but I don't think I've ever before seen the local moors looking so good! The Pennine Way goes across them, hence the stone paving to reduce the erosion. K-1 + FA 28-105. Please feel free to comment.

No. 1 for me, but all of them are great.
Be well, stay well.

Same for me, number 1 has more interest and a completely different feel to the rest of the set, all of which is good. I'm also drawn to number 9.

Thanks, both, for your comments. I can see why you would be drawn to the first one. It's an area where I take lots of photos, trying to get the"perfect" one! Also a good walking area around the moors/tracks/fields on the sides of the Colne Valley surrounding Marsden in the bottom of the valley. You haven't seen the last of the Marsden area!

Number 9 showing the moor is top of the set for me. The foreground interest of the path and gateway, the lake in the middle distance, the seemingly endless wilderness of the hills in the distance, the wonderful cloud formation in the blue sky, and the differential sun-lighting of the scene. Great shot, thank you.

Enjoyed them all - maybe no.4 edges it for me and the simplicity of no.12 I like too! Maybe no.9 with some more contrast and a mono-conversion might change the look completely

These are certainly my cup of tea, John.

As expressed by the others, these are all wonderful pictures of Pennine moors.

Being privileged to live alongside such a moor, I walk in the beauty you have captured as much as possible (maybe not tomorrow though, given the forecast!). I can smell the moorland air from your pictures

Nice set of images. Must have been a pleasure to walk there.

Thanks for the comments! It's a favourite local walking area that I never tire of visiting.

Lovely all, but something special about 8 & 9... Perhaps the idea that styles and such allow free passage (well, not for livestock) despite the fencing in of land.
