The Encroaching Dawn

By GrahamNobles  
Evening.

My old friend the Knuckle Stone again, this time just as the dawn brushed the distant peaks. A warm glow slowly spread across the landscape, but here, the frost and overnight snow lingered a little longer.

In the distance, left to right, Lose Hill, Win Hill and Bamford Edge, with Kinder Scout on the far horizon.

Thanks for the comments on yesterday's upload. All comments on this one very much appreciated.

Graham

Hi Graham.. hope you don't mind me saying so but the colours look "wrong" to me - the greens dont look real. I have checked this on a couple of different monitors to make sure it was not my tired eyes. Is it an HDR?

It is Jeanie, and maybe's too strong on the green shift, but opinions seem divided!

don't mind the theatricality of the colours in this as it works well as an image, anyhow Velvia hardly ever produced 'accurate' colours
Lovely colours & view.
