This was taken on my way to London on an early start, I was travelling on the A12 and went down the valley of Dedham and looked over and saw the mist rising and the colours appearing of the waking of dawn.
I knew when I saw this their would be a super photo opportunity waiting and I was not wrong.
Here we see the Boat house and restaurant and the river and meadow with the trees silhouetted on the banks and shrouded in the mist.
The Geese and ducks were waking up, and starting to swim about.

I love this morning pictures, also because I almost never can get round to getting up so early. The atmosphere in here is very much enhanced by the thick fog and very delicate light. The sun rays have just appeared and look like a promise of very nice day. Nice composition as well and classic framing.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

Hello Iain - Atmospheric and beautiful, the early morning start gave you an ideal opportunity to shoot this delicate misty scene. I think you have managed the light contrasts quite well but I think the shot would be better if you unblocked the shadows slightly and tried to bring out a bit more detail in the sky. A beautiful scene.
Have a lovely Easter.... go easy on the chocolate!

ce paysage est superbe! J'aime beaucoup ce plan d'eau avec un rideau de brume sur l'horizon et une magnifique lumière. Quelle atmosphère paisible.

a very lovely capture of the tranquil scenery awakening through the mist and soft light of a sweet morning. A fine, panoramic composition with attractive details and enough mystery to keep us curious. The only sense of movement is evoked by the geese but maybe also by the mist that seems to be shifting and evaporating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
