View from Blea Tarn, The Lake District. Fuji X-T2 with 55-200 at 110mm. ISO200, f/8.0, 1/100″

I was torn today between the shots I could share for the weekly Friday image. I seem to have some great alternatives I could show. I don’t know if its because I have been trying to get out more with my Fuji X-T2 or if it’s just the weather has been kind. Whatever the reason, I don’t care as I’m happy I have so shots I actually like.

In the end I chose one from last weekend, which I captured with my new Fuji 55-200. The image is lovely and sharp and the long lens has helped me compress the frame nicely. The mountain peak on the far left is called Pike O’Stickle which I have climbed several times. With the 55-200 lens fitted I am able to see small figures stood on top in some shots. Impressive.

But its not this sharp detail that made me want to share the image. It’s actually the lovely light that’s falling on the scene. The more I shoot landscapes, the more I seem to love areas of dark shadows where some details are picked out by warm light. Winter seems the perfect time of year for this.

I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
