Carl Wark

by sandinista

I went out to Derbyshire today despite the dire weather, it was marginally better on the Sheffield side of the pennines, though not much, light was appalling and low misty cloud. This is a view from Higgor Tor, near to Hathersage, to the Iron Age hill fort of Carl Wark

I think you have captured the atmosphere of the place and weather really well. For me, the glimpse of blue lifts the image.

How many of us would walk past a shot like this? Or even not venture out at all! Great use of this wide focal length.
Best wishes,

Andrew

As he says

Great depth of field, and really captures the mood of the day.

A lesson in the use of foreground, blends and mirrors seamlessly with the landscape.

You've definitely nailed it with this one Jim, especially given the conditions you had to work with. Wonderful photo.

I must thankyou for your extremely kind comments on this shot, it is gratifying when you are unsure about an image to receive such good feedback
