    Wondeful contrasting colours Andrew, the mist is fantastic as too the golden sky

  • Thanks David, I figured I would get some good early morning shots from this spot but I couldn’t believe my luck on having the mist as well!

    Fabulous work Andrew, the beauty about getting up early is you get that special shot.

  • Cheers David, it was a last minute decision to head off into the dales but I’m glad I did. It was a cracking day to be up in the hills! :)

    Honestly, Andrew … it’s hard for me to believe that such a place really still exists … this is out of a dream. WHAT a capture!!!! I’m in awe!!!

  • Thank you very much Lois, I’d figured I could get some good shots of the village from a walk I did earlier in the year, but I couldn’t believe my luck on having picked such a beautiful morning to go this time. :)
