I prefer the colour versions as well. For me #1 with the great light is the winner. TFS Neil

Must say I find the coloured renderings most evocative of the Lake District, and the images you've captured with the splashes of sunlight really stand out.

In color the scene looks much more one is there. or at least one can feel the atmosphere better. The b&w lacks that in this case.

The amzing light is much better rendered in the color version, I think.

Thank you, Neil, for providing the alternative.

Hi Harald,

Thanks for the comments and yes; perhaps in these conditions I have also struggled to deal with the B&W conversions to get them looking 'just so' in my eyes at least (and, by the looks of it, in others as well!). Anyway, your wish is my command (as I have all the B&W's as colour images anyway):

9 in Colour:



Thanks again and best regards Neil.

A bautiful continuation of your story, Neil!

I can second Michele's appreciation of #1, #2 and #5 - with #2 as my personal top favorite: an image where the photographer's and the landscape's composition meets!

I think the B/W images this time really struggle to compete with the color images - hard to say why. And it's funny - with #9 I asked myself (and this really rarely happens): How would this image look like in color?

Thanks for sharing them!

The greens in #1, 2 and 5 look wonderful. Fresh, inviting and more attractive then the b&w presentations in this case. TFS Neil .

Hi everyone,

A few more from our second day where we climbed our way up to and down from Side Peak in the Langdales. The weather was not the greatest but odd gaps did make for interesting events along the way...

1. View from Side Pike



2. Back Down the Valley



3. Ever Changing



4. Dry Stone Wall to the 'Summit'



5. Lichen of Ages



6. Light Strip



7. Lichen Survivors



8. Filtered Light



9. Returning to the Tarn



10. Wall Fern



11. Colours



12. Wall and Trees



13. Life in a Damp Place



The weather certainly didn't assist in moving too far that afternoon, though it did, finally, break a little towards the end of the day.

Thanks for looking and, as always, comments etc. are most definitely encouraged.

Thanks and best regards Neil.
