Lakeland Panorama 6/7

CASTLERIGG

Above Keswick, on a low hill in Lake District terms, is the Castlerigg Stone Circle, an ancient monument which I will show more of at a later date. The late afternoon light was quite good so I turned my camera round and took this panorama looking South-east towards High Seat (?). Just about everywhere we went sheep, and their recently born lambs, were grazing, quite unflurried by everybody passing by. [7 shot panorama]

Below is a shot of part of the Castlerigg Stone Circle where the above panorama was taken.  It is difficult to get an image of the whole circle as a constant flow of visitors are in and out of the place so this is just one small part of it, albeit there is a fine backdrop to the stones.

Rather a pleasant place for sheep to safely graze, Brian...if they get bored with the grass, they can just gaze about them at the pleasant undulations.
Brian Walbey: Well they are certainly in a very nice spot Ray, and they don't seem at all bothered by we humans wandering about their pasture looking at the stone circle.
the stitching is very well for 7 shots. great view of a fascinating place
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Another good panorama Brian... i would have taken the entire Castlerigg Stone Circle even with the people in it... they would add scale to itsmile... but you did just fine....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I have some shots of the whole circle still to be worked on. I took 720+ images that week and quickly processed the panoramas with a second back-up shot for each one to post this week, and hopefully, later this year I will be able to post an extensive series of the best of my shots from several places.
These are beautiful Brian!!!1
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Elizabeth. Frank said you went to Csstlerigg but it was getting dark so didn't see it at its best.

The stone circle is a joy, especially with that background Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris. Later this year once I have sorted all my shots I will post some images of the whole circle.
Brian, these are great photos. I think you are an awesome landscape photographer. A likey.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. Sadly some of my landscape work has been directly referred to by judges at the club as "chocolate box" which means, in their opinion, it is not even worthy of consideration when prizes are handed out. Last time I really had to bite my tongue, I might not be quite so diplomatic next time!
A fine view,x2, Brian,we went to see this,but it was going dark,so gave up,happy memories of these fells.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. I guess when you went the evenings were still drawing in quite early.
Both images are wonderful Brian but my preference goes to the second one!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, the stones are very old and good to see.
You have put together a good series of panoramas Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill, something totally different next week.
A wonderful area well captured Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet.

I've been there at dawn lat November; not so many people around then smile Next week, I'm taking pat in the Karrimor Great Trail Challenge across those lower slopes. No time for photography then. I like your close-up view.
Brian Walbey: Dawn in November up there must be chilly. Hope you enjoy the challenge next Sunday, we done some of that by car and on foot, we haven't your fitness, health and stamina unfortunately. Are you doing the 7 or 14 mile challenge I ask myself?
A good depiction of Castlerigg in it's setting, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
