Re: Comments
MV posts seem to serve different purposes for different people. Some appear to want a place to share their photo of a hill, without the need to get involved in further elaboration. I think this can be useful to literally 'build up a picture' of a particular hill.

Others, like myself, seek a bit more in terms of information. When I am preparing to go and walk on a hill or area I have not visited before the first thing I do is check MV for previous posts about the place. Like csd, I am looking for useful information on parking, access, conditions, accuracy of forest tracks and any other useful bits of information that might assist in my planning. In return I try to include some or all of these factors in my own posts that I submit. (hence why I appear to speak to so many farmers - getting useful information re: access and local knowledge. Plus I like to talk!)

Also of interest to me are those unexpected surpises or unusual events that are sometimes witnessed and shared by walkers. (someone once posted a photo of a fox and a bird of prey fighting, and of course let's not forget Simon3's infamous 'when pheasants attack' post!)

I think there is scope for both the detailed informative posts as well as the professional photos. Whether, as Conor74 asks, someone should include pictures of muddy gaitors will be decided by the value given to that post by the marking system.

Something I have often wondered about is whether I should post a photo taken looking at the mountain or looking out from its summit?
