I don’t know what the weather’s been recently for you, but here it’s been dreadful. I haven’t been out properly with a camera since the start of January. And I’m not holding out much hope for the next couple of weeks either. It’s only when I look back over my photo’s trying to find a Friday image that I realise I haven’t shot very much at all. Even last year the conditions didn’t work well much of the time.

Despite the lack of good weather, I did manage a good walk earlier in the month at Ingleton I the Yorkshire Dales. Whilst there I took a three-shot panorama of Ingleborough. It was captured using the Fuji X-T2 with the 18-135 lens. I also used a monopod to help steady the camera as it was freezing cold and blowing a gale up there.

I didn’t hold out much hope when I took the shot other than thinking it looks like a nice scene. Now I’ve stitched he images in Lightroom I rather like the result. It certainly conveys the sense of wide, open space you get up there.

Fingers crossed for an improvement in the weather and I hope you have a great weekend.

  1. I’m away down to South Wales for the next 5 days – seascapes, waterfalls and some of the Brecons – you can place your bets now that it will be wet, windy, cold and very uncomfortable – why AM I going ?

    Nice image BTW, especially as it’s shot in Yorkshire.

  2. Nice photo. For winter I generally revert to my film cameras for most of my outdoors shooting. None of my digital imaging gear is rated below 40F and I have used my film gear well below 0F. If I’m out in the rain I use my Nikonos-III.

    1. Thanks. Yes, film’s much more forgiving of the cold but then even that can freeze.
      I had my XPan with me in Argentina a few years back and the shutter button froze solid. I could only shoot using the cable release. Then I used a roll of Velvia I had left on the ground whilst trying to sort everything out only to have the sprocket holes shatter. It wasn’t a good start to the day.

  3. About sums up a winter walk in the Dales 🙂
    I think it stitched nicely.
    As the last on the 3 peaks walk, I dreaded that sight…

  4. This is a great photo! I like it a lot! as always all you photo are great! It look’s like a great place to take photos! would like to see a B&W conversion of that photo! I like all your B&W photos every last one of them.!

  5. Definitely a good panorama. Weather is not good either here in São Paulo, too much rain for weeks. I really liked this post, but you could have included more technical information. Focal length, aperture, shutter speed and ISO are always welcome. Have a nice week, Robin, greetings from Brazil.

  6. Excellent shot once again Robin! As you say, the feeling of space, even grandeur, is really evident.
