Dawn sunlight on Blencathra summit by 

Taken with a Canon 400D, Sigma 18-200 lens at 18mm, F11, shutter speed 0.3 second, ISO100, processed in Photoshop

On Tuesday my mates Gary Kenyon, Jason Connolly, Rich Gale and I went to the shores of Derwent water (Lake District, England) for sunrise. Derwent water was incredibly still producing mirror like reflections (with a hint of mist in the distance), one of the highlights for me was seeing the dawn sun hitting the top of Blencathra which is the peak on the far right of the shot.

    WOW! That’s a wonderful shot Shaun. It was a nice moment for me seeing all the light on Blencathra having climbed it with yourself, Jase and Rich a few weeks ago. Superb colours and reflections mate. Have a fave – you well deserve it.
