I camped on top of corn du woke at 4.30 and wandered down to this small lake as clouds began to pepper the sky and the rising sun warmed the landscape..It was a beautifully clear and fresh summer morning in the Brecons.
Being quite limited for compositions i shot the passing clouds reflecting in the lake.
Above the lake is a granite obelisk erected in the memory of a small boy called Tommy Jones. He was only 5 years old when he lost his way whilst walking back from visiting his grandparents during poor weather. After a 29 day search that aroused national interest his body was found high above the lake.

Some low raking light during cloudy, boisterous April weather produces some nice contrast on a much photographed view.

This is shot from the highest point on Exmoor National Park looking out towards the bay at porlock and on out across the Bristol channel to the welsh coastline.

some pretty intense direct sunlight and a heavy sky this made for a challenging shot.
I shot frames with the foreground exposed at single exposure stops with my finger covering the sun and so reducing the chances of flare.
i used a lee three stop grad and a single stop soft grad reversed and shot exposures to cover the range in the sky.
edited in lightroom then blended in photoshop.

Conditions condusive to Landscape photography have been all too lacking in the South West this year.
However with April like weather in May (the norm it seems now) the conditions have been great with huge great cummulous cloud broken by strong winds.
I visited this spot pretty much every night last week travelling about 500 miles (hence title) Here the right amount of colour in the cloud and the cloud formation itself came together to compliment the composition i was after....for about 5 seconds i'd say, proof of how fleeting these moments are.

I have previously submitted a panorama from this night (i shot as many as i could with such fantastic light) but i chose the wrong set of images.
This was the first set while there was still the slightest amount of light on the foreground providing superb contrast.
So here is the re-edit, as an English landscape photographer the weather provides plenty of opportunity to go over old files.
Shot in April 2008 looking across to what i feel is an archetypal dartmoor panorama, high tor topped hills and rugged countryside.
The tor on the left is the moor's climbing frame haytor, everybody comes to clamber over it in some way as its so accessible and is a fantastic vantage point looking off the moor towards the coast. On the far right is hound tor inspiration for doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles, rippon Tor is in the middle.
11 vertical shots edited in LR3 stitched in PTGui tweeked in PS.

A place ive been to many times but never with any success...

Staple Tor is incredibly accessible and one of the most photogenic tors geologically so getting it to yourself can be difficult...

Pretty much everything fitted into place for this shot, there had been thick cloud all day that seemed to break readily in the high wind so the chance of some good cloud at sunset and a gap in the clouds was promising. I headed to the western side of the moor watching the weather as i drove. After looking at a few different locations i decided that the rocks at Staple tor would frame the setting sun best..
The contrast of the light was difficult to balance i used a .9 soft grad and also bracketed shots to blend later.

A panorama of five vertical shots from the Lake District Cumbria.

A very typical lakes view this is shot looks north from Scafell Pike the highest point in England at 978m. On the left is the rock strewn Great Gable and Green Gable, the rocks of 'Great End' (yes really) flank the right side. The small lake or more correctly tarn is styhead with Derwent water in the distance.
