Morning light hitting the lower slopes of the Black Mountains with the Gwern Vale Manor sitting in the shadows. The Manor was the birthplace of Sir George Everest..no, not the double glazing people - the man that did the trig measurements of Chomolungma...what we all know today as Mount Everest Tongue

Superbly timed. Great bit of lighting. And the sunlit fields contrast so well with that sky.

Awesome capture. The light and DOF really catch my eye. I like how the bank of clouds is just dancing over a nicely lit lower slopes of the mountains. Well done!

The lush fields leads the ye up to the glistening crag and the moody sky along the ridge.
