With a fairly heavy dew still on the grass and the sun just rising over a mist laden valley the efforts of an early start were soon compensated...

Hello Leslie - An enchanted landscape which surely is the scene for a fairy-tale. I love the composition with the deep green framing provided by the leaves and lead-in lines created by the fences. The sunlit grasses look to be covered with dew, attractive textures. And then ... that incredible sunrise appearing over the misty valley. A feast for my eyes. Excellent! Warm regards Rosemary

I get the impression that you get up early in the morning! Love the atmosphere of this - magical! I was interested in Rosemary's note as my immediate thought on viewing your image was that it looked like a picture from a child's fairy story book.
An evocative image - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Good use of the trees to frame the iamge with the leading lines of the fences on left and right taking your eye through to the colourful sky. Those colours seem otherworldly! Well done.

this is a stunning picture, like something out of a fairy story. the mood and atmosphere is quite 'other worldly'. beautiful colours and an amazing light coming from the sky. the mist adds much to the scene.

Hello Leslie ;
A magical mistly mood and a fabulous light , for this superb composition . It would have been better with two or three little pickets instead of the lonely big one in the FG . But this was like that .

What a magnificent painting-like photograph!
Superb photo job!
Colors, chosen pov and composition are highlights here!

It is stunning place for colours and very atmospheric shot. You have captured with wonderful clarity,saturation and composition.

Is it me or have you just reached perfection here with this photo? I am amazed and transformed into a magical place called the "First Light in the Lew Valley", simply a gorgeous beautiful photo Leslie!!
Stunning colors and light management and the clarity is masterful. Your POV is so artistic and captivating that I got goose bumps after viewing this, and plan on viewing it numerous times today while with friends, they have to see this!!
Excellent framing and within the photo itself is framed with natural elements, OUTSTANDING!!
TFS..........Your Friend from California......Buddy

This is beautiful.
It reminds me so much of pictures you could buy many years ago, that were a collage of different materials, placed in such a way as to produce a wonderful 3D effect.
I like how you have used the natural vegetation as borders and the f/g fence post to produce a strong sense of depth. The light is enchanting, in fact the whole scene is like something from a fairy book, as the golden sun begins to dispel the early morning mists.
Have a good w/e,

Another great morning shot! What a great atmosphere!The dew covering the grass makes all the difference here and I really like that sunrise in the horizon and the mist covering the valley. Nice foreground, with the fence and the bushes. The light is just perfect! Really worth to get up early:))!

Excellent work! I really loved what you did here. It's as if I;m peeping through a natural frame! Love your composition and your PP. The warm colors at the BG is very attractive which complements the green tones of the whole image.
