Raspberry Sky...

...lit by the rising Sun with the Moon still in the sky. Each step on the moor produced the crackling of ice. My breath fogged the eyepiece and my specs. The joys of an early rise at 4am to see this and enjoy.

This is a great image ,however to make it better I think I would Cheat by enlarging and moving it to the right.
It's a lovely picture though.

Fabulous shot with perfect reflections in the still waters, great colours and I can image how cold it was - there's ice clinging to the nearest boulders.

Thanks to all, Saturday night can be the wrong time to post.

Not this week.

It was taking the weight of the tripod and gear Ronnie.

A very, very special landscape, Dougie. A dream to view.
Many thanks Ian, yet another award, I'm truly speechless, doesn't happen very often. Being speechless or having so many of your awards.
Thanks to all of my friends whether you commented, clicked or gave an award, I'm very grateful.
