just damn, Paul. Not an earthly landscape, I'd say. There is something apocalyptic about this.
paul: sometimes you just look through the viewfinder and think - yes smile

This is a fine, gritty & raw kind of portrait Paul
paul: I have made about 5 different interpretations of the sooc shot but I'm going with this one
Ah ... the delights ofKarst scenery . There is another rock similar to this in the area around Austwick called the 'Norber rock'. It's a glacial erratic dumped there as the last glaciation retreated. This looks very much like another example of a glacial erratic.

Damn good photo by the way

paul: thank you kindly Richard - i shall have to add Austwick to my list of places to visit

Very dramatic Paul, great work
paul: the drama was all in the scenery but thanks
Wow!! Brilliant! It reminds me of the Burren here in Ireland, that is a bare landscape, too
paul: now I have another place to add to my 'must visit' list
i have looked for this landmark on a few occasions Paul with no joy, top blooming notch shot here m8smile
paul: walk up from Chapel le Dale about 1/2 mile - turn left and 1/2 mile later you can't miss it smile
A fine desolate landscape from low down Paul, and one I keep meaning to go and see. This just adds to the encouragement.
paul: definitely worth a visit
Excellent composition and presentation Paul - definitely a likey!
paul: Thanks Tom. In colour the sky was a major weakness, very non-descript. Decided to go B&W and found I could wring loads more detail out of it. The toning was an afterthought but seemed to fit the mood of the day, and it worked for the whole series
Ufff. It's great, Paul. Incredible light and beautiful composition.
paul: The light came across much better in b&w - the sky in the colour version was rather weak
