Sun And Ice

By gpimages
Back to my favoured vistas.

I was hoping for more snow or at least frost on the tops from this photo-hike in the Lakes yesterday, but it wasn't to be. Nonetheless a super day.

This is from Side Pike with Blea Tarn in the middle distance.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Thanks also for your votes and comments on 'One Before You Go & A Kiss For Christmas'. Roy (kaybee) thanks so much for your award. All hugely appreciatedSmile

Lovely vista Graham, and good to see the lakes shots again. We are hoping to get up there at the beginning of next month and look forward to maybe some snow on the peaks. I'm always amazed how good the coatings are on modern lenses - bright sun, fully in the frame, yet minimal flare spot. Can't do this with retro lenses! See you there sometime, Andy

A very lovely vista, Graham 👍🏻 No sign of any snow here, in fact, after a gloomy morning, the sun's just come out! 🌞 Rather cold though at just 3C 🥶

Very striking, stunning clarity, did you use some sort of filter to capture the sun's rays?

Thank you Peter. No, no filters - just the smaller aperture at f16 did the job here.

It is amazing what you can achieve without filters or external tools. I do like the shadows too, almost dream like landscape 👍
