Photographer's Note

The views from the top of Roseberry Topping are breathtaking but it’s difficult to get a good photograph, with little to use as a focal point or any foreground interest. On a clear day you can see Teesside in one direction and as far as the Yorkshire Dales in another.

My previous post from the top was of the “summerhouse”. As it was a warm day there were lots of people enjoying the views, so I decided to use them in my shot. The fire on the horizon will probably be the moor keepers doing controlled burning of the heather. This is done on small sections at a time, on a rotation basis over a number of years to keep the heather in good order. The summerhouse is just to the right of this shot.

I’ve started a Roseberry Topping theme. Please click on the left if you are interested.

ISO 100 Yes I really did drag my tripod up there along with 2L of water, waterproof clothes (it is England after all) and the not inconsiderable weight of my camera bag. Just so I could get a decent DOF with ISO 100. I don't often have the energy for that.
