An image from a recent trip to Wastwater, the Lake District, Cumbria.

I knew before I took this shot it would be a Black and white image, it had all the feel of drama about it, this shot was taken standing in the lake to get a good composition of the rocks that were there and the lovely Scarfell mountain in the background which was surrounded by clouds and the imposing fog which was coming from behind me.
To get this shot I used a Lee circular polariser and a 2 stop graduated filter to keep the sky exposure in check, one of the most important tools I had for this shot other than the obvious camera, lens, filters, tripod and cable release was my wellies Smile.

This location only really gave me this shot which I took 3 times just in case however I thought it was all I needed after checking the back screen my thoughts were confirmed that this was going to be a moody Mono.

A wonderfully composed, exposed and captured image of this beautiful Lakeland setting. Works well in monochrome with a good tonal range.

Thanks for sharing Ian
