Lovely light here. Looking back over what I missed, some nice simple beautifully composed landscapes and the boiler room was quite striking
16 Oct 2009 11:07am
@grouser: Cheers Grouser.
nice shot,i like it .
16 Oct 2009 11:13am
I like it - picture postcard perfect, and nice effect to go for a telephoto landscape instead of the usual wide-angle. Well done!

beautiful color and view -- i LOVE that deep blue shadow!!
16 Oct 2009 1:45pm
This really shows the magnitude of the mountains--that house looks so tiny next to them. Beautiful landscape shot!
16 Oct 2009 2:15pm
@Amanda: Thanks Amanda. It's strange, if I include some sky within the frame the mountains look nowhere near as impressive.
Another one of your best. Fantastic landscape ans better shot. Compo ans colour and light control, perfect. Congrat!!!

16 Oct 2009 6:57pm
Amazing just how cold the light is in the shadows. Great light, super photograph.
16 Oct 2009 7:09pm
@Blackdog: I took the photo about a month ago and it was a baking hot day. The photo looks a lot colder than it was.
what a gorgeous landscape! great work Mike.
16 Oct 2009 7:11pm
You cannot fail to be immediately drawn to this...colour, warmth, light and shade, classic lakeland landscape...one of your very best if not the...great work Mike!
16 Oct 2009 7:30pm
@Ted: Thanks Ted. I originally preferred the other version with the diagonal of shadow, but as time's gone on my opinion has changed and I think this is the better of the two.
Beautiful landscape shot!! : )
16 Oct 2009 8:51pm
Superb image Mike, those mountains are really impressive together with the little house that gives some scale.
17 Oct 2009 1:28am
Fantastic work and wonderful composition! The green here is spectacular!
17 Oct 2009 5:36am
Great colours and a super view !!
17 Oct 2009 5:45am
The Lakes offer so much opportunity and you have taken advantage of this one, nice foreground and middle with a diffused background sweeping in behind the trees. By the way took your advice (unusual i know) and cloned the blown out spot, is it better
17 Oct 2009 7:44am
@P J W Miller: Cheers Pete. The simple clone has made a huge difference to your photo. Much much better. I also noticed that you edited my comment. I've learnt something new there as I didn't realise it could be done.
Another great angle and frame for this soothing place ! Ideal for the week-end, I wish you such a quiet sunny one*
17 Oct 2009 9:56am
très ,très belle photographie ! ;)
17 Oct 2009 11:42am
A lovely Indian Summer scape enhanced by a beautiful sunny light and great colors. Everything is perfect here, isn't it Mike ?
17 Oct 2009 11:46am
@Florence: Thank you.
Such a beautiful place !
17 Oct 2009 4:37pm
Completely transportive, Mike - The autumnal colors and that water. A fine composition.
17 Oct 2009 5:40pm
I think this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
17 Oct 2009 10:46pm
Beautiful!!! I love the light and shadows. Great layers and comp
18 Oct 2009 2:41am
This is so beautiful! It could be a post card!
18 Oct 2009 8:23am
perfect composition between the key aspects, shadows and landscape
18 Oct 2009 8:42am
Like a painting, fantastic lighting and composition, love to see the trees in the foreground it strengthens the sense of the magnificent scenery that is visible in the background / beautifully exposed Mike!
18 Oct 2009 7:07pm
What a beautiful lighting
19 Oct 2009 6:17am
WOW.. stunning photograph..

Wonderful place --- nice place to go and relax and rejuvenate.
19 Oct 2009 8:48am
Absolutely gorgeous balance of color. Really stunning landscape shot. Just stumbled across your photoblog and I love it!
19 Oct 2009 3:47pm
@RPepper: Thank you for your kind comment.
the golden hills against the blue is amazing contrast I like the way the gold wraps around the darker blue bringing your eye up and around the picture making you want to start the viewing cycle all over again.
This one took me on a mini metal vacation. I just wanted to travel the country side and I could almost feel the cool crisp air with all those blue tones. I absolutely love it.
Love the movement you caught in the water too brought 3 dimension to the picture The only thing I wonder at first is where is the sky no sky how odd (we are so use to seeing sky in landscapes we are condition to look for the horizon). Then I thought the absence of sky made the earth seems so large and endless which is probably what makes this picture so extrondinary. Kudos to you for realizing that and not following the norm.

@Diane: Hi Diane, thank you for your comment. I quite often ponder the subject of skylines and whether they are needed or not within a shot. I've taken landscape photos in the past without a skyline and have found them to be a little claustrophobic. With this shot I don't get the same feeling and I think it's because there's a tunnel of light leading a way out. The subject here was the line of trees and how they and the grass were lit against the shadowed background. If I'd have included some sky I think it would have lost some of it's impact. The grand scale of the mountains would certainly have been lost. This particular location is very popular with photographers, with most people trying to capture the scene when there's a glass like smoothness to the lake creating magnificent reflections. The weather wasn't in my favour on this trip but in some ways I'm glad.
Lovely peaceful place. Like your framing and the softness of the light.
19 Oct 2009 5:11pm
Beautiful. What a wonderful place.
19 Oct 2009 5:34pm
Beautiful lanscape. I like especially the colors, great!
19 Oct 2009 7:06pm

20 Oct 2009 9:58am
Absolutely love this Mike - excellent.

Beautiful capture. Wonderful light.
21 Oct 2009 2:56pm
Hi, Love it very much ! :-)
21 Oct 2009 4:56pm
The contrast of light and dark really make this image great. It puts the focus right on the trees. Very successful shot.
21 Oct 2009 7:41pm
do I like this? no.. I LOVE this one. the light is just stunning. the combination of colors, fantastic. arrangement is cleverly done. perfect job done, Mike.
22 Oct 2009 2:01pm
Beautiful landscape, fine light!
22 Oct 2009 5:22pm
Excellent sense of scale and great lighting. Great shot.
23 Oct 2009 12:47pm
Ah, the classic line of trees. I presume you will have seen the advert which used to appear in all the Brit photography mags. No idea what it advertised, but it was a great shot of this lineup. I find your colours here a tad strong, but people seem to like that. Nice to see the colours on the change - they seem to be taking their time this year, but will suddenly turn a superb colour for about 30 seconds before a freak wind blows them all in the lake.
23 Oct 2009 1:57pm
@John Leech: You're right about the late colours. I've noticed that too. Autumn photography is likely to be a bit of a let down this year. With regard the pic, the classic shot here is with dead calm water however I was quite chuffed there was a bit of a breeze so I could do something other than the typical reflection. I quite like the saturation. If you look at my other photo from here a few pictures back with the diagonal shadow, then compare it with my flickr version which is less saturated you'll probably prefer the more saturated one on here. Or maybe not. Let me know your opinion.
25 Oct 2009 4:52pm
Beautiful lighting and colors! Excellent!
28 Oct 2009 1:05am
Very beautiful landscape , beautiful colors light and shadows
