Buttermere dull morning

Well I was at work on N/S looking at the sky with stars and some light cloud showing hardly a breath of wind and sunrise well after I finsihed so I decided to head out after work. I went to Buttermere I drove past Loweswater and Crummock and both were suffering a broken surface due to the breeze. I continued to Buttermere hoping for calm water even though it was overcast. I wasnt hopeful when I parked up.
I hung around a long time talking to other toggers and eventually my wait paid off with some light.


Some light broke through and lit up Melbreak

Not the best of shots this one but OK the DR was a real challenge

Re: Buttermere dull morning

Really fine.
I prefer #1, because the symmetry in 3 & 4 seems almost 'unnatural' - as if it were some kind of PP manipulation

They are all beautiful images Alf but I like the composition and light in number one the most.

The symmetry in 3 &4 is natural 4 is a stitch of 5 12mm vertical shots and 3 has had much more PP than I like to balance the exposure becuase if you know the place that is a backlit scene
