Full of interesting elements, Frank...my favourite is the peek at the river, bottom right corner.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, yes, it runs right through the valley.
This turned out great, Frank! I like how you look long down the valley to show all those points!
Frank L Croston.: It was a loooooong way, Elizabeth. smile

Terrific image Frank, another to be proud of

No wonder you're so fit!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris, it must have been muscle memory, I surprised myself on these climbs at Zion. smile
So, at the top of the world again, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Nowhere better, Ginnie!

The rewards you get after these long hikes. A beautiful view and a fit body smile Great picture.
Frank L Croston.: Well worth it, Astrid, thank you.
It looks as if the top has been sliced off of that peak Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It does, Andrew, you never know...smile
I bet you were a bit puffed....please say you were
Frank L Croston.: No...

That is quite a climb and what a picture. So strong on detail.
Frank L Croston.: It was, Louis, but well worth it, even though we did do it by mistake for another! Thank you.
And it has a magnificent lone tree on the left to finish the image perfectly. I wish I was as fit as you, when we come up to Ambleside in July most of our walking will be on the flat, hopefully!
Frank L Croston.: I'm sure there must be some flat walks in the Lakes...smile One of the best is a circuit of Buttermere, you will like that,Brian.
I love the left side with the rocky floor. Great sky to top off all the majesty.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary.

I'm feeling tired just thinking about the distance and the height gain. I think I'll sit this one out and just enjoy the photo.
Frank L Croston.: I can't believe that, not action man Rolfe! But thanks for enjoying the photo anyway. smile
Guess who wants to sit on the Great White Throne...smile Seriously, this is a fine snow-colored scene...
Frank L Croston.: I know who we should sit on it, and we should leave him there! Thanks, Larry. smile
