I keep meaning to visit the lake district with my A40. Peak district and north Wales are good for nice hilly scenery too. Really good picture.

This is an awesome photo! I love the contrasts between the green at the bottom and the snowy mountains at the top. Those mountains must go to some pretty high altitudes! :-) My favorite thing about this photo, is the sense that you can stay on the photo, and just circle around looking at it, and the closure that the clouds at the top give it. Your exposure here is excellent, you were able to catch the details both in the dark and the light parts of the photo which can be quite tough. Also the blue sky really adds some color to the overall photo, which is nice. Your focus here is perfect, and I like your use of DOF, allowing for everything to be in focus... which is very important for this particular photo. The fact that it looks like you went just at the right time of day is a big part of what makes this photo so nice, the light at that time was simply perfect for what you wanted. Although I'm not usually a big border fan, I like your use of borders here, the single pixel greenish border really adds to the photo, then encircled by the black border it finishes it off. I like your composition here, the whole photo seems to lead you to the upper right hand corner, and I like your layering as well...The one thing that bothers me is maybe how it looks just slightly tilted, but it's very hard with things that aren't straight. Overall you have one beautiful photo here! I hope you enjoyed that lovely walk in the Lake District as much as I've enjoyed looking at and analyzing your photo. GREAT job!

Wow. That is really really amazing. Beautiful landscape. I love everything about this really. Angle and framing/cropping, focus and clarity, lighting. Everything. It's wonderfully divided. The sky is beautiful too. Great color. Nothing I would like to see differently. Great shot. Good luck in the challenge. 10

This is so beautiful, lovely picture.

Wonderful colors, lighting and clarity in this image. I am looking forward to finding out where this was taken. My only neg would be the tree in the lower right, Kind of pokes out from nowhere, only just half there. I\'d would have preferred not seeing it at all, or instead maybe having it brought into the frame some more. Otherwise, excllent job! addendum - I liked this so much I had to bump it from a 9 to a 10. md

hmm looks like Britain to me.... Peak District?

Could be horribly wrong, its probably Canada or something

Very nice though, nice contrasting colours

Very nice rich colors. The clouds add to the photo. You did a great job. Good luck!

Gorgeous sky. Great detail. Nice lighting. Could use a little more foreground - like inclusion of the tree off the right of the frame. 9

Beautiful picture. The part of the photo that isn't snow covered is amazing. This picture belongs in a magazine!

There's so many absolutely beautiful photographs this week, and this one is one of them! I love how the seasons seem to change in your photograph. Too bad it is not a longer photo, I wish I could see more! 10! -Annida

I hate you people who live near pretty places like this. The clouds give a sense of scale, I like it! (7)

A beautifully balanced classic landscape shot, great work.
