Dales view


I wasn't going to post this one on my blog, though I've put it on Flickr.  A letterbox crop is the wrong shape for the blog really. But since I think it's probably one of my best landscape pictures EVER..... please view large (click on it). It's another view of Langstrothdale, such a scenic and unspoiled place.

  1. I both agree and disagree with you. I disagree, I think the letterbox shape makes a pleasing change on a blog post. I agree, it is one of the best landscapes I have seen in a long time.

  2. Yes, I do think it is an outstanding landscape shot. The lighting is especially good; the clouds are just the right amount and density and the river wending its way into the center of the photo is the cream on top. Sorry, I have such an analytical mind. If I think it's the best, I have to know why :)

  3. Agree with Alan, cropped shots on the blogs are good. Lovely spot, well composed and exposed.

  6. Absolutely beautiful -- a scene awaiting a Constable's brush...or your camera.

  7. You're right Jenny, it is excellent, I've enjoyed all your shots in this series on the Yorkshire Dales, what a wonderful area to walk.. I use this crop quite often on my blog, I think it works well.

  8. Well, I'm glad you did put it on your blog 'cause I wouldn't want to have missed that one. It's just about perfect.

  10. Perfect, jennyfreckles, perfect! Even though I nearly always show photos on my blog that are cropped in the same dimensions as they came out of the camera, there is no good reason to stick to a single format. I agree with the others who say "No, crop it the way you like it and then show it to us." And I agree with you that this wonderful image is one of your best, which is very high praise, given how many lovely images you have shared with us.
