Buttermere at dawn

Here is one of the shots I took this morning after beingh on Night shift the roads getting to this spot were covered in frost and sheets of ice so it took longer than usual and it was actually cold for a change.


Taken with my Olympus OMD E-M5 mkII and 9-19mm zuiko lens.


Buttermere at dawn by Alf Branch, on Flickr

Hi there Alf!

That's a fantastic shot - well done for getting to the right place at just the right time and having the skills to capture it. I'm very jealous! Time to get it printed to A2 and framed I think.

Cheers,

Ralph.

Beautiful reflection Alf. Wish my drive home from work was as picturesque. It looks like one of those ink blot fold pictures you do as a kid.

This is not on the way home. I went home for my camera and then on to Buttermere and was 3 hours late going to to bed.

Re: Buttermere at dawn

Alf, you are indeed fortunate to live reasonably close to locations such as this, and for your shifts to coincide with the best times to visit. However, you still have to make the effort, often when you are no doubt tired and would probably find it much easier to go home to bed. So well done for your dedication and perseverance, you certainly deserve to get fantastic pictures.

Ah, the true British sacrifice for own's art, cold tea. Seriously though that is a beautiful shot Alf, well worth the effort. The reflection in the glassy stillness of the water is gorgeous without being chocolate boxy if you know what I mean.
