Great Dun Fell, Cumbria

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.
