This is as good as the light got on Saturday morning, taken about 10 minutes before sunrise from White Moss overlooking Rydal Water. From here I hiked up to Allcock Tarn where it was windy, bitterly cold and had completely clouded over so I quickly made my way back down.

This shot is probably a bit dark but that's how it was.

Thanks for looking.

Darren.

A beautiful image. The darkness adds to the overall effect of the photograph.
