A new day dawns

By dathersmith  
It seems an age since I did any landscape photography so I was determined to get out last weekend as I had a free Saturday. I set my alarm and dragged myself out of bed at 3am (yes it did take some doing) and set off into the Lakes only to be greeted by mist and fog and a sunrise that didn't happen. Anyway I stuck around to watch the morning unfold and every now and then the swirling fog revealed something, either a boat, jetty, island or in this case even a glimpse of the rising sun. Unfortunately minutes after this was taken I couldn't see the jetty again so called it a day and headed back home, not what I expected but it was good to be out in the countryside with the camera again.

Hope you all had a good weekend too.
