A fantastic morning up on White Moss with Terry Roberts and Brad Eide, this was a cracking place to get to just before the sun had risen over the tops allowing us to set up and watch the scene unfold.
The valley below slowly filling with early morning light and glowing sunrays catching the remnants of the mist still hanging around the water, this really didn't last long and had we delayed getting up here we would have missed this light. I've posted one from here before but this is quite different as I've gone in a lot tighter into the scene with the zoom lens to give a more intimate feel to it.
We tried our luck in the opposite direction towards Helm Crag after this but the light was very fleeting and I didn't really get anything I liked enough to keep. Worth having a zoom in on this one and having a look aorund.

Another from a fantastic misty morning on Buttermere with Terry Roberts, the Lakes is odd sometimes and I mean that in a good way, as this really wan't the type of thing I expected to be shooting this morning in this location but the constantly changing weather was really dictating what I was shooting, which I don't mind as it keeps you on your toes and stops you falling into the trap of just shooting the same things as you have before, although admittedly at this location that's not really such a bad thing, but far better to come away with something unique.
The mist here this mornoing came, went, came again, went again, and then as the wind dropped it rolled in again all over the lake moving really quickly, so as a photographer shooting this I also had to move really quickly as one image that would be available one second, would be gone the next, I really liked this scene with the first sunlight starting to burn off the mist with the sunlight hitting the Autumn coloured foliage behind standing out against the dark mountainside.
Not long after the arrival of the sunlight the mist was gone and there was no hint of what had been an incredible scene just moments before.
