Have you seen Dan Arkle's gallery on the Telegraph website today? Some interesting photos from a fellow climber. I know some have been on UKC before, but I've not seen all of them.

and I'd disagree, finding the latter far more involving. I find it difficult to make out much detail in Dan's work.

Fair enuf! It might be subject matter that makes me like them, but if Dan's planets were perhaps a little greater in circumference then they'd be even better.

Thanks guys, I hadn't realised they had put them up yet.

With regards to making the details out, I've tried to optimise them for printing at a reasonable size. All the more recent ones do have a good amount of detail, that can't really be see in a 1000pixel file.

I supposed I should release a cropped series to show the detail more, if people prefer that. Or have zoomable versions like my Stanage panorama (where this link http://tinyurl.com/6zr4npx gives a much better impression of it than the ukc verion: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=183166).

Dan Arkle's are amazing but Catherine Nelson's are stunningly beautiful.

Still beyond me how its done!

I just dropped onto the derby evening telegraph website to read last nights match report when I spotted some familiar photos:

Also I'm on BBC Look North, 10.30pm tonight BBC1

Thanks to all on UKC who have encouraged me over the years, it has really given me the motivation to keep at photography. I still remember the first time I got a photo with a 5star rating :)

(Please excuse the self promotion, but this might be my only 2mins of fame!)

Dan,
Enjoy it, it's deserved and doubtless won't be your last.
