Good Morning Everyone,

Oh, I think spring is here!
Last week, we went walking in The Lake District. The weather was sunny and clear, and with the steep climbs, soon felt warm.
This is a view up the steep path towards Skiddaw.

According to the information boards, there were boars, red squirrels and deer, on the slopes. Unfortunately, these animals kept out of our way, so my photographs had to be content with the breathtaking scenery.

Many thanks for stopping by, Bev :-)

Shot in RAW.
Converted with PSE6.
Very little pp just added a soft light filter at 26% opacity to lift the colours, added border and signed

Hi Bev,
A nice lead in road into this landscape shot.
Very subtle lighting and good play with shadows.
A very sharp and neat image with such a fantastic contrast.
Good work and a pleasant composition.
My regards,

Lovely photo Bev .. nicely composed with the huge tree on the left and the hikers on the right.
I am so envious!! We are, oh so far from this. Our world is still under a meter of snow, and we're dealing with -20 temps!! it'll come soon though. Thanks for the lovely view of spring.

Bonjour Beverly,
Belle perpective et jolies couleurs de printemps,
Here we are just finish the end of a snow storm 35 cm. of snow with wing..:)..
Nice POV. and with this patch and big old tree with a beautiful sunny day..
Have a good day...

Hi Bev,
Quickly, spring arrives!
I am in hurry of those great walks in my favorite landscapes!
The composition is especially successful with this diagonal path. Two points of interest: the red coats of the walkers and the big tree in left foreground. With the contrast of autumn colors and blue sky, the image is really a treat for my eyes!
Beautifully done! Annie

Nice shot Bev. Great POV and dof of a wonderful scene. Deep beautiful color and sharp detail. So pretty and well composed. TFS, Lori

The composition attracted me to look Bev but it seems to lack sharpness (soft focussed)Probably a higher f number would have renedered more sharpness. Lovely colours and composition.

Thank for sharing a wonderful capture .

The composition here really works well -- the bare tree makes a great foil for the path that leads ever onward!
Great stuff

As a hiker, I do like photos of people walking away from the lens towards unknown horizons...
Your composition looks perfect to me, with the beautiful old oak (at least I suppose) nicely framed in the left upper part of your picture. It's presence is important in your shot: an anchor point that provides for a timeless touch and that counterbalances the movement of the hikers, who will soon disappear from our view.
The vibrant but natural colors and the play of light and shadows make the spring feel almost palpable.
You are lucky to live close to such a delightful area...
TFS & kind regards,
