Nice moody capture. What's the significance of the Cairn if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks, Bill

This image shows excellent use of the whole range of gray tones... very nice. I also like the "X" created by the mid-ground horizon sloping up to the left and a line connecting the interest points of the cairn and the clouds sloping up to the right.

Love it.

wonderful image, as all have said.
I'm surprised you don't shoot (or display) more archeology images, since there are so many in northern England.
regards, tom

Hi Bills Thanks for the comment

The Cairn is a navigational aid and is very helpful in bad weather. The Cairns are just stones picked up by walkers on recognised paths and routes.
