Surprise View and cloud sun dogs

Took these the other night at Surprise View above Hathersage in the Peak District. I was lucky enough to see some cloud sun dogs, although they didn't come out as well as I'd like. Seen these on telly before, but never with my own eyes. Granted not as spectacular as the 'real' ones caused by ice in the sky, but still great to see.

Re: Surprise View and cloud sun dogs

No 1 is an excellent composition and I love the light and mood. It could be even better with an old-fashioned ND graduated filter.

Thanks, I do use grad filters.

What strength filter did you use on No1?

0.9 soft grad. Perhaps a hard grad would have been better?

Depending upon where the transition line was placed in the frame a hard grad may have tamed the sun a little more effectively. Another option may have been to add a second, weaker filter stepped above the first but this would have risked destroying the subtlety that you have achieved. I'm always keen to explore the possibility of making a great shot even better but as you've already used a 3 stop filter this should perhaps be left alone!

The first shot is very nice.
I have in my kit a (not often used) reverse ND grad which would have been ideal for this shot, worth thinking about if you want something else to carry around

Thanks, that's what I've been after and didn't realise you could get such a thing (runs off to order one)

Thanks. Surprise View (sorry couldn't resist )

Joking aside it's called surprise view on A6187 between Fox House and Hathersage in Derbyshire. There's an interesting rock formation up there too called Mother Cap. I plan to go back and take pics soon.
