Doesn't look like Stanage from that angle.

This is Yosemite valley viewed from the four mile train up to glacier point, there was a lot of glare so i tweked the contrast a bit and got rid of the colour, which i think works well. All the locals and the camp 4 residents seemed sure this was the best place to climb in the world. I didnt agree, but could see why they thought that. El Cap is one of the most awe inspiring pieces of rock ive ever seen. However, i dont think i would swap it for Gogarth or Pembroke, or a perfect day in Scotland in Winter.

Yes, a shame for blown-out sky (I suggest taking 2 shots, one exposed for the background and one for the person and combining them in photoshop afterwards), but it makes me want to be there!

Brilliant photo gallery. I think the "blown out" sky creates the dramatic impact of this shot. Sometimes perfect exposure = boring :-)
