Some pics from a walk around Buttermere in the English Lake District today. Weather not the best but it did provide some dramatic contrasts. I am still not good at getting the best from these.

Good shots warth man! I particularly like the first one, the clouds cast a nice shadow over the mountains and the water and it has good depth too.

Thank you Bjorn. The second would have been better if I had ND filters with me to reduce the burn-out in the sky to the right. This is a lovely spot but you need to plan to go there deliberately - it isn't a place you would just drive by.

Just tried the flickr sharing again and this time it worked. Here's another Buttermere pic, this time showing the autumn colours better.

Great shots! I especially like the first one as well, I think the shadows look amazing and they give quite some depth to the mountain. The look of the water on the third one is great, much better than on the first one. I also liked the sky on that third shot than on the past two. Good job :)

Very nice shots, another one of places I yet to visit with a camera, think an ND Grad would of helped defiantly to reduce the sky.

Thank you Burtoner. I will have to go back and try again. But that's what it's all about, I suppose.
