    Darren recently loaned me a book about Ansel Adams -- it made me want to give the ol' black and white landscape a shot. I can see why he preferred large format cameras -- there just isn't enough detail here. One could stitch a panorama to get more detail, except with a shot like this you're already at the limit of what most telephotos can zoom to -- this is effectively 320mm. I shot this as we were coming back from the Lake District. The white dome atop the mountain (Great Dun Fell, 2782 ft) is the Civil Aviation Authority's ATC radar.

    The view of Derwent Water (with Keswick and Skiddaw in the distance) from Suprise View near Ashness Bridge in Cumbria, UK. This is an HDR photo composed from 8 photos, tripoded and mirror locked, shot at f/9 with a Canon 70-200 2.8L IS on a Canon 20D. Combined and downsampled in Photoshop CS3.
