I'm of the opinion that mountains are often best photographed from the valleys, and valleys best viewed from on high. These four photos of Lake District valleys were taken within a couple of miles of each other. C&C welcome (or I'd have posted them elsewhere  Wink)

These vistas are all nicely rendered in b&w. #3 is my favorite. I love the light in that one.

#3 for me, too.

Its composition is the most compelling for pulling my eye down from the mountains into the valley, among other things.

#1 and #3 are my favorites particularly #1.

The shaded foreground of #2 and the cropped rock in the foreground of #4 are disturbing me.

#3, for reasons already mentioned.

All four make me want to visit the Lakes District some day. But that has been a long-standing wish. I'm a sucker for scenes like these, and these are very well done.

Nope.

I am a creature of habit. And if I associate anything with English landscape in general, and Lake District in particular, it would be color.

I'd like to see the color versions, too.
You mean to tell me that English landscape isn't naturally black and white???   Grin

OK, here's the colour versions. I'll be in the Lake District a few times this year (including in November), and hopefully autumn will provide some better colour than these.

I'm feeling nostalgic for the monochrome Duddon Vale, but the combination of colors in the foreground of Wasdale are intriguing. I like your theme of high viewpoint for valleys and low for mountains, it does seem to maximize the drama of the scene.

I think Number one is the best of a good bunch. The reason? I think the foreground is just right. It leads you very nicely into the valley. Colour or b/w.

The monochrome is good but the color is superb. That's landscape! Bravo Bill!

One of the things that grabs me about these pictures is the atmospheric perspective. Living in the Rockies, I'm more or less surrounded by vistas like these, but the air is so clear that this kind of beautiful shading into the distance simply isn't there. Sometimes, oncoming weather will produce this effect, but it's pretty rare and usually not this gentle. Bierstadt caught the Rocky Mountain version in "Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains." It's not very serene.

Really nice Bill.
I like these B+Ws, even though I never do B+W landscapes myself.

My vote goes to #3 as well. It's excellent in b&w but I think the colour version is even better.

#3 clearly stands out. It works both in color and b/w through at thumbnailed size (large viewing distance) the color version is clearly stronger (strongest of all).
