Green Hows Sunset

By dathersmith  
This was taken on Monday evening and shows the sun setting over Green Hows Upper Tarn, near Hawkshead in the Lake District. As the name implies there is a tarn below this one but I had a walk to the upper one for the view of the sunset. I got there just in time as the sun was rapidly setting, the nights are certainly drawing in quickly now!

The light levels were low and I liked the trees silhouetted by the setting sun over the tarn along with their reflections in it. Hope you do too. Unfortunately there were no clouds to add interest in the sky but you can't have everything.

10mm, 1/13 sec @ f/16

Thanks for looking, comments appreciated.

The metallic quality of the water is the thing that drew me to this excellent image.
