    Excellent shot Andrew, this certainly shows the wild conditions you can get up on the moors,

    Regards Dave.

  • Cheers Dave, it may not look it but it was quite a wild day when I took this one. I was glad I had my woolly hat and gloves on! :)

    cracking light and composition mate

  • Cheers Shaun! This was taken about mid-day, not ideal but as it is only February the sun is still fairly low in the sky so it turned out ok!
