Hartside Pass
The Penrith to Alston A686 road goes by Melmerby which then climbs to a height of 1904 ft, from where there are some magnificent views across the Solway Firth to Scotland, on a clear day you can see Helvellyn, Great Gable, Skiddaw, and in Southern Scotland - Criffel. This long and steep climb also forms part of the Sea to Sea Cycle Route. At the top of this pass is the Highest Cafe in England called "Hartside Cafe". An information plaque names the mountains that can be seen. The road then continues to Alston, England's highest market town. This drive is named as "One of the Greatest Drives in Britain! by the AA, and is also very popular with bikers in the summer.

Helen, I would like to apply very similar comments to this as to the one with the wolves. ie a little more 'life' breathed into it with some more contrast and colour depth. the grass made greener etc. You have the correct software to make this a cracker of a shot. All the necessary ingredients are there they just need IMHO of course, a bit of TLC in processing. Have another go and make this into a winner.

Nice image Helen like the way you have captured the depth of the view along with a fantastic sky, also like the detail when viewed full size, you must be getting the hang of the Nikon
