There really is some magical light if you're prepared to get up with the lark!

Thanks for you support on yesterday's from the same location but taken about half an hour earlier before the sun strated to break through the fells.

Hope you like this one too. It's my fave of the two but with lots more to come from my recent sojourn to the Northern Lakes

Excellent composition and as you say, the light and air quality at that of day is really special as can be seen in this crisp fine image.

Superb shot. Wonderful composition. Like the way the fg rocks kind of accentuate the symmetry above.
