A Cold and Frosty Morning

By dathersmith  
Another from Saturday morning on the Northern shores of Coniston Water. I wanted to make more of the trees on the left bank as well as the distant hills so switched to my 70-200mm lens to pull them to more prominence in the frame.

Thanks to those who commented and voted on the last one and I hope you all had a good weekend.

Thanks for the comments everyone, appreciated. It was a very low contrast scene with a bit of distant mist and only a hint of colour from the sunrise and this is what I wanted to keep in the image, hope I achieved it.

Lovely tranquil image and good use of the jetty as a lead in to the trees.

A beautifully composed and balanced landscape shot: you haver preserved the soft misty conditions on the far shore very well, and balanced that with the crisp outlines of the landing stage so nicely, so you have achieved exactly what you set out to. Very well done.
