West Nab: Light on Mist

By andy_AHG    
A breathtaking sunrise at West Nab on Saturday morning. When I got to Wessenden Head, the moor was blanketed in thick hillcloud. As I took the road to Meltham, I dropped just below the cloud base... but climbed back into it as I walked up West Nab. As sunrise approached, I wasn't holding out much hope but a fortunate gap in the clouds blew in just as the sun was rising over the distant hills, lighting up the cloud in the most amazing orange light.

West Nab never ceased to captivate me!

Hello Andy - hope you're well. Was out on Saturday myself but not so lucky with the mist. You caught some lovely rich colour in this one.

I like the composition on this one more between the 2 images, strongly framed using the fg rocks. Once again superb and quite unique conditions you've caught. Wink
