Artist's Description

Taken on a warm dry day in August 2011, possibly one of our last such days, a view across Red Tarn to the summit of Helvellyn, England’s 3rd highest mountain in the Lake District National Park.The tarn is quite high,sitting in a glacial corrie below the summit. Thge ridge to the left is Striding Edge and to the right Swirral Edge.From this angle they don’t look too difficult but they are famous for people falling off. Sadly a couple of weeks ago,a Rottweiler dog fell to its death from Swirral Edge. On this day,Mrs VR and myself just walked to the tarn from Glenridding and watched an endless procession of people going up Striding Edge. It was like a conveyor belt…not my idea of a quiet walk.
Viewed large,the eagle eyed may spot Mrs VR in a purple fleecy sitting by the tarn.That’s her idea of a nice walk.
Sony Alpha 350 DSLR 18-70 lens,3 RAW images tonemapped in Photomatix Pro4 and stitched in Photoshop.
