Black Mount Sunrise

By bill33
From Saturday morning once again and this time approx 6.15am. The warmth of the morning sun contrasting with the cold blue of the evening colours made for an interesting combination. The moon can still be seen on the far left of the photograph,and the subtle reflections can be seen on the frozen loch. On the way back to the car the legs of the tripod were frozen solid, I had to defrost them in the car, It was -6dgs at the time. My sincere thanks once again to everyone for your time to view and comment, it is very much appreciated. Bill.

A stunning composition with interest from the off. The light in the mountain range seems almost apocalyptic in its intensity, simply stunning.

The ice, the difference of light and colour, the reflection of the glow are all excellent. Superb work! Worth all the time and trouble taken.

A beautiful early day image and your own remarks up top summarise what my own would be.
And it does look extremely cold, the ice suggesting how low the temp. was.

The light is exquisite, Bill. Didn't notice the moon straight off, excellent inclusion.
