Morning at Monsal Head

I mist the best of the mist but here's an earlyish morning shot of Monsal Head.

What a lovely morning, it must have been a joy to be there.

Great shot Phill. I like the hint of mist.
Maybe just tone down the foreground bush or take a ladder up next time!

Oh Wow, Phill, you are a master of light and shadow, like bloody Rembrandt, mate. This is an enchanting landscape.
The autumn colours are vibrant and rich, your composition and timing are as usual, spot on.

Re: Morning at Monsal Head

Gee guys thanks for the encouragement you've certainly made my day on this miserable wet Monday. Hardly Rembrandt Mark but nice of you to say so. John yes it was lovely just to be there as the mist was burnt off by the sun and the shadow moved down the valley. There was a lovely bit of frost on the grass too but it doesn't show up very well in this shot. I did take a few more though so maybe there's a better one when I get chance to look through them. Yes this was from the car park Dave! pretty impressive location ability there Not sure I'd want to be stood on a ladder though Beagle it's high enough without. I know what you mean about that bush though, might have a tweak at that now you pointed it out.
It was a lovely morning and had I not done the Carsington sunrise shots earlier that day then I'd have caught more of the mist here. I had a great chat to a fellow togger who had been there for a while with his Fuji and his lovely dog. He got more of the mist than I did and the velvia setting on the Fuji did make the colours pop on his EVF. I think my Oly did pretty well though in the end. Don't think I'll be swapping anytime soon. I did a couple of fisheye shots too and he was blown away with the wide angle coverage I was getting.
Yes Mark a bit too late for the challenge. Mind you in a week I think the reds and golds would be even better.

Re: Morning at Monsal Head

Lovely pic Phill, walked that route 5 years ago, and stayed at the B&B at the top near the car park. Due another walk up that way I feel sometime soon..

Great shot Phil, it brings back memories of a couple of visits there when we lived in Nottingham.

Lovely view and lovely shot. There I was thinking you had walked up until you mentioned car park.

Nope this was a drive up shot. I did go on to Mam Tor later though for a walk. It was really windy, definitely no mist left when I got there.
