Nice images ... I particularly like the second one

Thanks JR. It was one of those days where the light was in the lap of the gods. With the first shot, I waited around twenty minutes for the sun to light the mountains in the distance, but ended up with this one, taken soon after I'd set up, yet when we climbed the hill, it didn't look that promising, only to get the lighitng on the second.
Lighting of the gods indeed Richard!  That second one is one of those images that even if you missed it, you're glad you were there to experience it!  It feels wonderful, just looking at the image!  Thanks for sharing that one!

Was wondering also, not exactly sure the whereabouts of this area, are you in England or Scotland?  I have long unseen family in Newcastle and that area...

Sunrise shining onto low cloud at Seathwaite Bridge, Borrowdale in the English Lake District.

Nice one Sporgon!  That little 24-105mm does have a way of pulling out the subtle colors!

Thanks Ken. You're quite right about the colour of the 24-105. ( The 24-70 f4 IS is the same ). There is no photoshop in that image, it is entirely processed from the RAW in DPP, a program which having ignored for years I'm now beginning to have some respect for  - within the limits of what it can do of course.

Agreed, I don't use it as much as I used to either.  I do update it with each new SW update they have and it slowly gets better and better... it's consistently reliable if nothing else!

I was wondering too, if you could tell me where the "English Lake District" is?  Please don't say England!  ;)

Thanks Ken. I actually live in the southwest of England, but I visit Scotland fairly regularly. The first two shots were taken in Strathconon, which is in the northeast of Scotland, around two thirds of the way up. The last was taken near to Glencoe, around half way up, near the west coast.
I also usually stop off in the Lake District, on the way up, which is on the northwest coast of England, in Cumbria. Cumbria is the northernmost county on the western half of England, before you end up in Scotland. It is also almost level with Newcastle, but on the other side of the Pennines. As a bit of trivia, Cumbria comes from the same root as the Welsh word for Wales, Cymru. They are taken from cymbrogi or compatriots in English.

Fairly simple composition Ken, but it works well.

Thank you.  This was taken back with my lowly 7d...  ;)

Just thought I'd post this for giggles!  ;D

I was trying to get a shot of the sign that says, "Do Not Cross This Line"  Rocks On Ledge Are Loose And Subject To Falling"  "Passing this Line Could Result in Serious Injury or Loss Of Life". 

Well, I realized they were so far beyond the sign, I couldn't get it anywhere near the frame...

Wind gusts that day from 40-55mph!  I particularly like the guy on his knees... wasn't sure if he was getting ready to jump or trying out a "Titanic" Bow Pose!  Anyway, it was kind of a fun photo! 

All the best! :)

It just shows you can get decent landscape images even with bodies not necessarily designed for that sort of work.

I was wondering too, if you could tell me where the "English Lake District" is?  Please don't say England!  ;)

As Kernuak has said, it is a mountainous area that lies in the North Western part of England, quite close to the Scottish border. It is the remains of an enormous volcano that would have been about five miles high some 450 million years ago, so about the same length of time Canon has had their 18mp APS chip in production. Lakes fill the valleys between the mountains and hills, though in geological term they are silting up fast; quite a few have gone from the last five hundred years.

It is a very beautiful area but often rains unfortunately. Here is a picture that should show some of the iconic Lakeland peaks: Great Gable, Glaramara, Steeple, Pillar to name a few, but all you can see is clouds  ;D

Thanks Sporgon, it's quite lovely actually.  I'm looking forward to a trip there in the next year or two and will be surprised if I don't want to just stay there, it's very beautiful!  Thanks again!  :)
