Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 10-20 lens at 10mm, F16, shutter speed 0.5 second, ISO100, processed in Photoshop

I took this shot around dawn in February this year when we had several weeks of very cold weather, it was a wonderfully peaceful start to the day. Derwent water is in the foreground, the hills reflected in the water are called the catbells.

Catbells is a fell in the English Lake District in the county of Cumbria. It has a modest height of 451 metres (1,480 ft) but despite this it is one of the most popular fells in the area. It is situated on the western shore of Derwent Water within 3 miles (5 km) of the busy tourist town of Keswick. (Wikipedia)
