Mum and two lambs out for a walk (and a quick snack) while taking in the views from the ridge.

My first new material from Derbyshire in over two months. This is the best the morning delivered, as for most of the time the sun was hidden by cloud, but I had a good walk from Mam Tor to Back Tor and back Smile

Even if this is the best the morning delivered, I don't think you need have any concerns, Martin. It is a very well composed shot with beautiful light. With the sun being hidden by cloud, the light is dispersed and the haze exaggerated giving the image a delightful atmosphere. The presence of the sheep on the track just completes it for me. Very nice work indeed.
Ronnie.

A wonderful shot. It sucks you in and that sunrise is spectacular. Like the sheep for added detail.

I didn't think an award was on the cards Martin, so to get one is especially pleasing. I have been struggling for motivation for the last couple of months, so two awards in as many weeks despite only a few goes with the camera has certainly boosted the confidence Smile

Again thanks to all for your comments...and of course to Pete for the HC Smile
