Looking across Derwentwater in the Lake District, Cumbria. Early morning calm meant the lake was barely moving but I gave the mirror like calm a bit of assistance by using a neutral density filter.

Canon EOS 30D, Circular polariser, graduated filter, nd filter, tripod, remote cable.

Photography is my passion. I get a great deal of pleasure from this wonderful hobby. When the light and the composition come together at the same time, it’s as good as winning the lottery!

    What a gorgeous start to the day. This place does look so tranquil and beautiful, love the calm water and beautiful light display going on in the background and sky.

  • Thanks Stuart.. it certainyly was a tranquil, if cold start.. took this yesterday and not long after my image I uploaded yesterday – so despite there not being much of a breeze where I was, the cloud was certainly moving briskly across the sky.
