Taken a few weeks ago while out for the sunrise with Martin Levers (martinl) on Baslow Edge. I liked the way the heather had the rock almost surrounded. Also a trace of mist is still visable in the valley, even though the sun had been up for an hour or so.

2 dust spots in the sky? One to the right of the rock and one just to the right of the dark clouds on the right.

Cracking shot though.

Great stuff Martin. Unconventional in so far as the rock breaks the horizon line and i think it works really well.

Great early morning sun too.

The shape of the rock somehow complements the line of cloud. Can't complain about the light either!
