At one time I was coming here three times a week. It was my therapy for giving up smoking!
I was encouraged by the fact that as each week passed since I gave up smoking, I was able to increase my walking capability - related obviously to lung capacity. And the difference was immediate, measurable, and incredibly satisfying! I had become an addict of non-smoking!

I love these mountains. The only thing I miss here is the sea. In Cornwall I get both rocks and sea, even if the granite isn't as spectacular as here (although some of the sea cliffs can be!). If this was by the sea, it wouldn't be the same due to the hordes of tourists. You can go some days here without seeing another person at all!

Thank you Ron. I come here often and I hope the variety of rock shapes, etc stops it all becoming too 'samey'!

Thank you Pam. I thought at first you meant that your heart attack stopped you going for walks (thread with Richard Nuttall above), but on re-reading I see that you meant that you gave up smoking. I was relieved when I understood!

What an amazing collection of shapes and textures. The rocks look just glorious in the sunshine and the grass in the foreground leads the eye into the shot nicely.

That's easy! I have decided, for the time being, to post 3 from Spain on one day, followed by 3 from Cornwall, the next day, interspersed occasionally with shots from elsewhere!

Another amazing image. All those magnificent photos of granite landscapes have got to make the viewer fall in love with granite! I never knew there was so much of it :(

Well I have been lucky in my choice of playgrounds!
Yes there's a lot, for example much of the west coast of Europe including Scandinavia, Eastern Canada (actually the same formation) and much more besides, around the world.
