I really like this shot. The guy and dog are such a part of the image. Too bad you can't get a copy to him.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Hollie, who knows? He may see it somehow, he can gladly have a copy.
Wonderful shot, Frank! I love this - and the guy and the dog really do make it. You're forgiven for not knowing their names- as you pretty much know everything else! smile XOX
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, wot you sayin' ? I'm a know all? smile

This is a brilliant shot, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: South west, in this case, Ray, one from a past life...smile Thanks very much.
This is a fine picture and it makes a change to have people in a landscape

It's worth the climb to get this view Frank. No doubt you are getting yourself into PRIME CONDITION as you await the visit of your beloved!
Frank L Croston.: It was worth it,Chris, especially that day. Oh yes, hours of training have gone into my preparations...Anyway,got to get up now,nearly lunchtime....Got to squeeze breakfast in somehow...
Waiting and longing for the day almost here....
Frank L Croston.: Not waiting, cleaning up mostly....smile

This photo could make my day - but I'm not sure if I would manage this stony climb up - are we in the Lakes? I hope so! In former days I did such walks, too, in Austria and Switzerland.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Philine, yes, in the Lakes, the West side of Buttermere. You will have good memories too then.
Great, almost like an oil painting the way you have presented it
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin, the light on that day was great.
You can come down now ,Ellie is coming..
Frank L Croston.: It'll take me three days to get down....smile

Fine views for you and fine memories for me

Feeling 'on top of the world'! Stunning shot Frank smile

You were on top of the world. Very, very nice.

Nothing like a decent climb to get some air in the lungs.
Frank L Croston.: Getting air into the lungs was the problem,Mike, but once you are up there...smile
What a spectacular view you've captured here, Frank, and with the addition of the backpacker and his dog, a superb image, indeed.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much,Beverley.
A lovely view... the guy and his dog add a nice sense of scale...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry, yes, got lucky with the two of them.
Lovely picture Frank, including the man and dog is a bonus. In 1960 I would have stood around about this very spot as I too looked down on Pillar and then followed up with the walk (climb) to the top of Great Gable. I was young and fit then of course.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, isn't it nice to have those memories though, happy days. smile
just like a postcard Frank! fantastic!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Aderonke.
super view and the man and his dog give a great sense of scale
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Sarah.
