I hope you have a print of this image on the wall Derek, surely one of your best of the best?
I recall seeing others from that cold morning and being so impressed I couldn't move on.
High quality photography and a wonderful composition with the church on the thirds, the light striking the yellow reeds and forming a magical diagonal.
Everything an image should be in the landscape category.
Finally how I wish it was my image...sigh.

Beautiful how the sky opens up all around the church. The light is wonderful in this, highlighting all it touches and following a curve around and to the church. Stunning photography.

The rising sun was at the optimum height for this scene at the time I pressed the shutter. The field to the right is on a rising slope which meant that the light is catching and highlighting everything over 12" form the ground in this shot.
Some of the best light and conditions I have photographed. I was very lucky.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments and clicks. Special thanks to Andy and Jan for their UA's. I really appreciate it.

What else to say Derek? Your images from here are the best I've ever seen! I know the location well and have never shot here in the early light, your work inspires me to do so!
