Hi,

I had a stunning morning at Buttermere, though reflections came and went a number of times so it was a test of patience to get the near perfect reflection.

1, I decided to shoot this quite wide to get the best light from sunrise. The clouds were also catching some nice colour.

2, Couldn't resist turning the camera 90 degrees to get this shot, makes a lovely composition in its own right in my opinion.

Any comments or CC would be appreciated.

EDIT - Both of these were single RAW files, no bracketing or filters.

Thanks

Liking #2 - great colour. I’m back there in a few weeks, all being well. Hoping for some still mornings like this.
Mornings like this do not come along that often - perfect reflections, nice light and a good sky. It's a special recipe that god doesn't serve up often. I prefer Scotland to the Lakes, and the Alps/Pyrenees to Scotland but I'd have LOVED to have been there that morning.

I normally don't covet other peoples images but these...my lord exceptional conditions beyond belief. The OP has captured and rendered them beautifully.

Thank you!

These are the best pictures of Buttermere to grace this forum.

Fantastic work - superlative even
Wow, that's an immense compliment, thank you.

It was well worth the night sleeping in the car!

Thanks, it's a stunning place - hope the conditions work out well for you.

Really nice and perfect conditions, which do not come along that often. Lovely!
Thank you.

Two absolute cracking shots well worth the wait.
Thanks very much (y)
