Looks very lonely - which is odd for the Lakes.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

A beautiful shot, although the highlights have rather got away from you, I feel.
Best wishes,

Many thanks for the comments.

It is one advantage of going to The Lakes in May/early June that it is not so crowded and if you pick your moment you can get these apparently deserted views !

Coping with the highlights is always a problem with shots like these as I don't normally use any filters but rely on 'cleaning up' the RAW file in PSE11.
Believe it or not, Andrew, this had the Highlights slider moved almost fully OFF but perhaps I may have overcompensated when raising the Whites ?
It's a case of try it and see and live and learn.

Thanks again
