Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
Lancashire is usually associated with large cities and former mill towns and much less with attractive countryside, but within its borders lie many lovely places including the Forest of Bowland, now designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This shot was taken recently from a viewpoint on Longridge Fell known as Jeffrey Hill. Close by the small car park, on the right kind of day, spectacular views are possible of the distant Fylde coast, as well as this one looking over the Vale of Chipping towards the Bowland Fells. The cone-shaped hill to the left is Parlick Hill with the broader shape of Fair Snape Fell stretching to the right.

Very good David, really like the variety and depth of colour
Wonderful scene David and so rich in colour.
Great shot & info David .. though I find the colours a little too vivid in this instance. Thanks for your comment about Whitby & the uploading of "regular" seen images. Always difficult to know which ones to upload from such a popular place?
I agree with Martin that the colours are a bit strong but maybe you wanted to bring the foreground out ? A graduated efect might have been the answer or a selective use of saturation.
The colours are certainly vivid, but the overall effect is pleasant. The image has good sharpness, and must look superb at full resolution. Colour saturation is a personal preference, rather like the choice of which film to use in the old days (Kodachrome, Agfachrome, Provia, Velvia etc, they were all different but suited different tastes). A 'faithful' colour reproduction, which this is probably not, is not necessarily the most attractive.
Stunning well done
