My comment as I passed these 2 intrepid young lads climbing on what was an incredibly cold day. See icicles over towards the right of the crag!

Beautiful picture, thanks. Would have been perfect if the climbers had been in the upper groove of Aviation! You should have made them do it! But I gave you a 5 anyway of course.

How did you get everything exposed so well? Is it 1 shot?

Nice pic, Sean. Love the almost 3D effect of the Tor against the sky!

thanks for all the nice comments. The 2 photos exposed at the same time, one for the climbers, and another for the sky which was still underexposed by 2 clicks (2/3 stop) to capture all the detail in the sky. Images joined in Photoshop photomerge, increasing the canvas size to accommodate the sky. Silght adjustment in levels but the intensity of the sky reduced a little in an adjustment layer. Thats about it!

Ever considered the 16:9 landscape Sean. It will improve your photography.
