A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

CASTLERIGG 2/5

Yesterdays image showed the Castlerigg Stone Circle at Keswick in full but there are many photographs to be had by selecting just a small part of the circle, as with this one, and including some of the mountains, in this case High Rigg, in the background, and a convenient puddle in the foreground.

Stunning shot Brian! It's a beautiful landscape but the rock in the center holds great interest as well. Enjoyed your narrative as well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances. If you like the landscape here then i think you might enjoy the next few days as well, there are fine views in all directions.

Its a brilliant place, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Ray, and great views in every direction.
I like the way that you framed this Brian with the attention on the pear shaped stone from the circle with the mountains behind them....petersmile
Brian Walbey: This particular stone rally caught my eye, the puddle was a bonus, and somewhere in there I think I cloned out a lady in a red jacket smile
This helps to show the size of them!
Brian Walbey: Yes this gives more idea of the scale of the stones.

Chris and I would get out our pendulums there, Brian, to watch the energy flow....!
Brian Walbey: Yes I believe such places are thought to have certain such qualities.

The puddle mirrors the mountain
Brian Walbey: That particular stone really caught my eye especially with that lovely backdrop.

This is a lovely view Brian, put this in for a prize, it will surely win.
Brian Walbey: I might well give this one a try Chad, although it will probably get criticised for the stone being in the middle!!!
Has that rock sprung a leak? Lovely picture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. Leak or not wink the puddle was a bonus.

This really is a beautiful shot. I love that there are cloud shadows on the hill.
Brian Walbey: There are fine views in every direction, Mary, a few more to come during the week.
Very nice,Brian,a change to see High rigg,and not Blencathra in the shot of this place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, and I got the name right, thank goodness for that!
I really like how you've composed this one, Brian. It was a good idea to select a small part of the circle when you can present it so expertly.
Brian Walbey: This place has a wealth of opportunities Beverly, this stone and the puddle together really caught my eye.
The image raises many questions in my mind about what actually went on all those years ago.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Martin, there are all sorts of stories about the occult and ley lines etc.etc.

This is a really evocative picture, Brian - I can almost imagine the stones as they were when being used
Brian Walbey: yes so can I Lisl, and tomorrows image is much after the same style again.

Dame nature toujours à nous émerveiller, superbe endroit merci pour le partage !
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Joelle.
Superb composition with this puddle Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I felt the puddle gave some foreground.
Nice capture Brian, the puddle really helps.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, I felt the puddle gave some foreground.

Ahahah.. a new lake smile I've yet to climb that mountain beyond... one day, maybe.
Brian Walbey: A mere morning stroll for an experienced walker like yourself I presume Alan.
