A Herdwick sheep reflecting in the autumn colours on the River Brathay. The Lake District
A Herdwick sheep stood under an Autumn tree on the edge of the river Brathay as the sun was rising and the mist was rising from the water.
This sun caught me off guard as I didn’t expect to see the sunrise from here. Fortunately, it came up bright and hit the back of the trees pretty harshly giving a glow to the left-hand side of the tree which contrasted with the shadows on the right as the light diffused through the tree. The sheep were walking around in the field all morning. Fortunately as the best of the light arrived they also walked into the frame completing the Lake District scene.
I probably should have got more photos of this morning but instead, I stood watching this until the best light was gone. It was the right decision. The views over to Great Langdale weren’t that clear once the light had passed.
