Post Bluebell 10th August. 
A rare day off over a busy Summer turned to Gold on my first ever ascent of BB and only my 5th foray into LL photography. To make things more memorable, I took the early morning North face ascent, to the amusement of veteran Tim I met on top, who immediately met me with sympathy, but alas no oxygen for the initial 15 minutes it took my heart rate to get back to normal to even contemplate holding a 300 steady! All slips, scrapes and foothold scares on the way up were quickly forgotten as the 1st of 12 passes of Hawks, GR4s a herc and the mighty 400, along with quality company and top tips from my solitary shelf sharing snapper, turned my mountain goat impersonations as a newbie, into a memorable day out. Many of my shots are similar to his fantastic set 24 hours ago, but I'd appreciate the critique anyway and hope they do some justice to the opportunities of that day.

Great set there Nik.

Agree with Sev - the A400 shots are fantastic.  Really like the framing of it on no.2 - given me some different ideas to try on mine now.  

Very brave on the Hercs and rewarded with full discs!  I bottled it at 1/250 - only managed a very small handful of keepers even at that high speed.

Nice to have met you and cheers again for the company up there.

Some great shots there Nik. Just love #13. I was around the corner at Cad West. Seems we all had a good day.

Regards,
Dave.
