Sunset. Stars and Snow on Coniston Old Man | Landscape Photography

 

The plan was to go up Coniston old man to photograph the stars over Dow crag with the ridge along the bottom and the stars in the sky. I went up via Goats water and managed to get the sunset there and then ascended to the old man once the sun went down.

 

Once I reached the top the wind picked up and the clouds were to low in the sky for the photo to work. Fortunately, the view up to the top of Coniston Old Man with the sun setting as the moon rose lighting up the water worked better than I had expected
