Misty Sunrise

I thought I'd get out of bed at daft o'clock and see how things looked in glorious North Yorkshire at first light and this was what I saw looking from Blakey Ridge over to Danby Beacon and along the upper reaches of the Esk valley

4:28??? And presume you didn't fall out of bed and take this outside the front door - so I'm guessing this was actually on the way home from the pub - not an early start as your leading us to believe??? ;)

Mine usually are too Ian but when the weather men and women tell me the only sun we'll have will shine early doors then I felt I'd best go remind myself what it looks like ;o). They were right it did shine a little but long after this shot and it was gone again by 10 a.m so I'm sort of pleased I made the effort.

Many thanks !

LOL ! Me in a pub till the early hours Dean would be about as likely as England winning the World Cup. :o)

I like this a lot, Sam.

Getting up at sparrowfart at this time of year can be a wonderful experience. Unfortunately for me I get up at 5:30 most days for work and at 6:00 in Madrid it is still dark, even at midsummer! Different time zones and latitudes and all that!

Best wishes, Andy

Tha might a'waited 'til yon mist lifted lad,we can't see 'owt!!

Yes i can mate,i can even see Danby Beacon standing proud in the distance,its a glorious shot well worth the effort.

I'm glad i don't live in Madrid!!

I don't like the sound of that dark morning malarkey but then I don't like getting up early as arule so maybe I'd be ok with it. Glad to read you like this early offering anyway Andy though I can't say that I'll be treating you to this sort of thing regularly :o) I'd gone here to capture a different view Neil but the density of the mist in the valley made it a no can do so I kind of settled for this which looked only so so on the camera screen but when I got it on my monitor at home I was pleased I'd taken it.:o)

Many thanks to you both,

regards, Sam :o)

Thank you Fabio

I might have to get up early a bit more and see what it brings Brian, mind you I do need my beauty sleep so maybe not too often ;o).

Thank you !
