A shot from January 2006. I thought I had lost this and the other images from the shoot, despite my backup procedures but luckily I found an old hard disk at the bottom of a box and wondered what was on it. I was pleased to find these again. This is Elterwater in the Lake District. My main focus was on seeing the sun rise on the Langdale Pikes with Elterwater itself in the foreground. However, I just happened to look behind me and I saw this.

Wow what a find and what a photo, I would not even think about nitpicking with this one it is just perfect.
Thanks for sharing and making me rather jealous by the way, and a good point about the late winter sunrises, but I'm still not usually up in time.
This is one of the best photos I have seen on this site for some time a real smasher, have a ten from me Sir Alan.

This is a bit gorgeous Alan, thank goodness you found the disk and I hope there are more treasures like this to come. It just go to show what the old timers are capable of - the camera, not you Alan!

A real quality image Alan, very good detail in the foreground and leading off through the trees. the colours in the sky are excellent and the two tree lines stand out very well against it.

Well, this certainly is a Wow shot. Glad you found it Alan. I love the low pov how you have taken this showing the frost on the ground where you can just make out the path that leads into the distance & the silhouette of the trees with that gorgeous sky. Certainly deserves a 10 from me. Love it.

I am really glad you found this again Alan. The red sky is just amazing.

Ahhhh the 20D what a great camera that was, as this gorgeous photograph goes to prove.
It is soooo good I feel as if I can step right into the shot and have a wander around.
Excellent work and mighty glad you found it Alan.
I have no hesitation in giving it a Ten, luv it.
