At last, some new images! After 3 weeks of grey skies, it was more than good to get out again. Decided to head for 'Old Faithful' (Higger Tor) and what a morning it turned out to be!

Arriving at the car park for Higger (less of a car park really and more of a puddle) at 7.30am and despite clear skies when I set off, the top of the tor was draped in low cloud. However, against all expectations the sun appeared briefly, sneaking through the narrow gap between the horizon and band of low cloud, taking only a couple of minutes to disappear from view again. I could see that the cloud was beginning to break slightly, with the promise that once the sun rose a little, it may fight it's way through.

I began to walk along the rocky edges to find a new position. The higher cloud parted a little, enough to allow the sun to show and suddenly it light up the mist with a stunning golden light. The effect was quite breathtaking, especially with the white, frost covered rocks reflecting the light. This continued for approximately thirty minutes before the cloud descended again and visibility was down to just a few yards.

It was one of those mornings that serves as a reminder why I love landscape photography and having the Tor entirely to myself was an absolute liberation. It's been a very long time since I last had a morning as good as this and I went home buzzing from the experience.

Thanks for you comments, encouragement and crits on recent images. Your comments are always appreciated.

I do like the comp, but I'm a bit unsure about the colouring here - the sky looks very orange yet the stones are a far cooler looking purple?

Also the stones appear brighter than the sky, which makes it look a little false - maybe a bit of oomph in the sky, just some localised curves maybe, then you'd hide that contradiction a little?
