Nice pics Dave, i keep telling my self I must get up early one day while the weather is like it is and do some shots like that. But, MMmmmmm warm bed keeps back,................................................. dam bed!!
Graeme, now you know why all my shots are sunsets. I couldn`t imagine getting up early and having nothing to photograph. We should get together for a camera session some time.
Clive, it has been misty here for a few days and I had been watching how it sits low between each line of hills. I was hoping for a little more mist, and maybe one or two cottages with nice smoke stacks, but you can only work with what is in front of you.
I must have been on top of that mountain for over an hour, and was getting seriously cold. It was interesting to see how the light changed over that period of time.
Fortunately, the results were probably worth it. Like you said, Clive the pastel effect given by the mist filtering the light worked out quite well. I used the levels histogram on Photoshop 7 to compensate for the over exposed sky, but the colours are pretty much as nature supplied.
