  • Ennerdale water sunrise

    I went out this morning to shoot the sunsrise at Ennerdale. I was much later than I wanted to be due to road closures and having to divert my route. The weather forecast I looked at last suggested 4 mph winds so a reflection may be possible so I was not expecting waves.





    I arrived in time but had a very short window before the cloud obscured the light. These shots are about 4 minutes apart.

    I think the colour in the top one is superb.

      They're both cracking shots. I prefer the colours of the first but the composition of the second with the wave not cut by the bottom of the frame is more pleasing.
      I'd be interested to see one with the water frozen though I appreciate you were hoping for smooth lines given the forecast.
      I'd be very pleased if I had shot either of those

        Clearly the light in No1 is more dramatic and this demonstrates what a short window of opportunity there often is for sunrise/sunset shots. Like AMc I prefer the foreground wave in No2.

          Two great shots Alf, I prefer the sky in the first shot.

            Both shots are great but I do have a preference for the second. Maybe it's because it shows just that little more detail in the surrounding hills and mountains.

              To freeze that water I may have needed ISO 1600

                Nice work Alf. Personally I prefer the more restrained tones in the second.

                  Two good shots as I would expect from Alf. My opinion only... I would crop out the breaking wave in the 1st shot, the colour is great. In the second shot there is a small dark line in the water to the right of the centre line.I would row a boat out to it and the railing would draw your eye to the spot. That would make the shot for me. Trouble is, where do you find a rowing boat when you need it lol!.

                  Ever wondered what happens the dark when the light is switched on?

                      Both cracking shots and make me realise how much I miss the Lake District.
