I was torn today between the shots I could share for the weekly Friday image. I seem to have some great alternatives I could show. I don’t know if its because I have been trying to get out more with my Fuji X-T2 or if it’s just the weather has been kind. Whatever the reason, I don’t care as I’m happy I have so shots I actually like.
In the end I chose one from last weekend, which I captured with my new Fuji 55-200. The image is lovely and sharp and the long lens has helped me compress the frame nicely. The mountain peak on the far left is called Pike O’Stickle which I have climbed several times. With the 55-200 lens fitted I am able to see small figures stood on top in some shots. Impressive.
But its not this sharp detail that made me want to share the image. It’s actually the lovely light that’s falling on the scene. The more I shoot landscapes, the more I seem to love areas of dark shadows where some details are picked out by warm light. Winter seems the perfect time of year for this.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

Lovely photo Robin, so nice to see a different composition of this view.
Thank you. I had noticed this composition on a couple of trips to Blea Tarn but the weather/light has never been quite right.
What a marvelous photo Robin. I just got a 2017 iMac 27″ & it is gorgeous on the retina display. Much better photo than the one Apple uses in its OS High Sierra!
Thanks Jed. Congratulations on the new Mac. But watch out because it makes everything look good.
Like the photo and comments. Waiting for my lens to arrive.
Thanks. Hope you like your new lens.
Great image. Is there where you stood for it? (Gotta love Google Maps to decode shooting locations from halfway around the globe) https://goo.gl/rU7BfL

Yes, that’s the place although you have me standing in the middle of the tarn. Here is where I shot the image from https://www.google.com/maps/place/54%C2%B025'44.1%22N+3%C2%B005'29.9%22Wfirstname.lastname@example.org,-3.0928508,357m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m19!1m12!4m11!1m2!1m1!2sUnnamed+Road,+Ambleside+LA22+9PG!1m6!1m2!1s0x487cc6c966a85417:0x7ff894211327b3af!2sPike+of+Stickle,+Ambleside+LA22+9JY,+UK!2m2!1d-3.12287!2d54.45586!3e0!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d54.4289294!4d-3.0916267
Love the layers as they give such depth to the shot. This is a super composition. Lightweight or not, this is a heavyweight image!
