Wow, that's what I call a dramatic shot, well worth the early start, really like it

Thanks Both!

I was at Willen Lake at 06:20hrs but had to wait for the sunrise; I'd set up near to this spot at the Peace Pagoda.
Not long after this shot was taken the clouds rolled in and a snow flurry hit.

Thanks lads. I'd checked the weather forecast the night before and realised we'd have a clear sky in the morning; as my wife was on an early shift and works opposite Willen Lake I volunteered to drive her to work.

Very nice indeed. Who could not like that sky? Great tonal range and detail front to back as well - impressive result!

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Excellent lights and colours, good use of the wide angle lens. I also like the muted colours of the foreground.
