I have posted the Haystacks picture in the lens gallery, but thought I'd pop it into the Landscape gallery along with another picture. They are both taken in the English Lakes District National Park, the first from a small mountain known as 'Haystacks", looking towards Crummock Water and Ennerdale Water, with High Stile in the middle, at 2,643 feet. I know many around the world will laugh at that height being a mountain ( not those in the Netherlands  ;D   ) but to us Brits it's a mountain.

Second picture is taken in Borrowdale by the River Derwent, looking towards Maiden Moor, a paltry 1,887 feet.

All on the 24-105 at f11, at which aperture this lens is as good as anything else really, especially after pp.

Lovely Images Sporgon, I seemed to have missed all these lovely places when I visited the area, seemed to rain an inordinate amount of time, but your shots show just what I missed.

So many lake district pictures! So here are a couple form me :)
Taken with the 300D and the 18-55 kit lens. Straight out of the camera. That time I shot JPGs :) Sorry no RAWs.





Yes, and it was a perfect week! June 2006.

Same trip. June 2006. These are at Lytham. Stayed at the Clifton Arms smack opposite the Lytham green. Lovely place. Went to BAE to work...

In Lytham town


The old boathouse and the windmill

OK, so you got me. I see sky, clouds, greenery, rocks, and water. So where exactly did Victoria fall?
