A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

CASTLERIGG 3/5

 Similar to yesterdays image another small section of Castlerigg Stone Circle at Keswick with Low Moss in the background. Fortunately when we paid our visit to this place there was only a few other people about, it was getting near to evening meal time, so I was able to wait until the stones I wanted to photograph were clear of other people.

Maureen chased off all the tourists, but was not so successful with the shadows, Brian...just as well...
Brian Walbey: Indeed Ray, I wondered what some bloke was doing sprinting away with Maureen chasing after him smile

A stunning landscape Brian! It was well worth the wait for a clear shot this is magnificent. The placement of the stones makes me think that perhaps Druids worshiped here at some point? What is the history behind this lovely place?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances. You can read a lot about the circle here, but like all such thins nobody rally knows what they were actually for.
I love seeing the shadows!
Brian Walbey: Yes that front shadow nicely fills the grass gap between the two stones. That's camera club talk.

They fit so well into the landscape
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Chris, I think you would enjoy comparing this place with the many circles round your part of the country.

However, Brian, the people would have given these stones scale, right? I have a feeling they're quite tall.
Brian Walbey: I got low down for this shot Ginnie, but most of them are at the most as tall as an average height person.

These stones really have a presence, Brian
Brian Walbey: This low down angle gives them more prominence doesn't it.

Oh yes the photographer's curse ... waiting
Brian Walbey: I'm not the most patient of people, one of my sins I'm afraid, but fortunately there wasn't that many people about to have to wait for.

I am so appreciative that you are showing these fine photographs.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. Tomorrow a full on landscape of one of the best views from Castlerigg.
I am going to start adding people to landscapes if their aren't any....just to be difficult grin
Brian Walbey: I have recently taken a few shots with people in to add interest, as long as they aren't wearing hideous red clothes!
This does look a special place Brian, a beautiful shot too!
Brian Walbey: It is a place worth visiting Martin, if only for the views.
I like this one, Brian,nicely composed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Frank.
That is really beautiful, Brian. It's like the landscape hasn't changed in all those years since the stones were put there.
Brian Walbey: I dare say it isn't that much different, time to nature and natural things is different to our concept of time I feel.

Maureen did a great job getting the people out.
Love the POV and love to read your camera club talk smile
A lot of energy here.
Brian Walbey: Maureen thinks I should have people in my photos, to which I say it depends on the subject, how many people and what they are doing and wearing. Actually after 43+ years in clubs the technical talk gets on my nerves at times, I just like,looking at pictures these days, faults and all.
A wonderful perspective through this stones Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought they made a good frame for the scene beyond Richard.
Who knows what went on there?
Brian Walbey: In reality, whatever the "experts" say, we will never actually know what these places were really for.
And the evening light helped to bring out the best in the landscape.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it did John, couldn't have picked a much better time.
Très mystérieux, your picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.
