I really envy you early birds, being able to capture images like this. It is really stunning! Expertly composed with the foreground gate making a great lead-line. Superb light and colours. Wonderful photography.

This has to be one of the bonuses of living in England, what a wonderful scene; sunlight cutting through the clouds and illuminating the low-lying mist. A glorious image which conveys the breathtaking beauty of the early morning landscape Les. Quite magical and well worth the early morning start to the day. I love early mornings when you can watch the day begin in peace and quiet, don't you? Warm regards Rosemary

That's a very nice picture, an invitaton to dreaming, to take a good jacket and leave for a great walk where we could suprize wild animals in the mist.
The colours are very harmonious.
Thank you for the sharing.
Have a nice day,

well this is as fresh as you can get, from camera to TE in hours, I am so impressed. The image is so beautifully atmospheric and quite wonderful. Early summer mornings can be quite magical and this shot proves that so powerfully. Love it!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

Hello Leslie, very nice image here. This is the kind of image TE was made for. Good to see such quality photos from England, a country that has a magnificent countryside. Very well done here, i love the atmosphere.

Wow! I like the effect of the morning mist on the mood! I wish we get foggy condition but Southern Nevada is too dry for that. Great pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.

The clear foreground identifies this quite safely as England, but the colours and mist and strange light make the rest of the view look like something much more exotic than Devon. It's an amazing view anyway and you captured it very well with a good exposure and nicely managed colours.

this is a beauty! Love how the sun's rays though the mist fan out and create an almost corrugated look. Your early start makes me feel guilty at being such a slow starter in the mornings. Note to self to get up!

Amazing capture with the taste of a Japanese ink painting !
TFS and have a nice weekend

Une capture du petit matin grandiose, spectaculaire et magnifique dans un effet de lumière magique, belle réalisation
annjackman (21899) 2013-07-26 23:49
Wow - I really love this. The golden light is heavenly as it streams through the mist. My attention is caught by the little open gate that seems to invite me into this magical place.
KInd Regards, Ann

Good Morning Leslie,
Out early this morning and isn't it wonderful that we have so much of the sun recently! This is such a treat! The golden light of the rising sun is colouring the clouds and the mist as it lifts from the meadows. A painter would love this!
Your inclusion of the grass and trees in the f/g puts the whole scene into context.
I like how the open gate allows us access!
Have a great w/e,

the early bird catches the worm!
The mist creates a fantastic atmosphere that you have captured excellently. The management of the difficult light is outstanding and the composition is really successful. My compliments!
npecanhuk (75592) 2013-07-27 11:04
Wonderful picture with special regards to the colors, exposure and composition!
TFS - congrats,

You caught a very beautiful misty morning atmosphere ! Very beautiful golden colours.
Have a nice sunday,

dear friend great picture in this sunrise great light location and orange colors
speedymanu (3701) 2013-07-28 3:57
A dramatic atmosphere with this mist that has a tore up veil look. The restricted palette is very efficient and reinforces the impact of the sun rays. Congratulations,

Amazing, the early sunlight create very long ray and shading through the trees at background, fascinating golden view in early morning, nice misty effect, I like the beuatiful village too, good frame to show it all, distinct photo, good shoot.
mkamionka (38329) 2013-08-01 13:22
I find no words to write here. It is a breath taking view. Amazing play of the sun rays and the fog. Excellent exposition, processing to emphasize all the details and silhouettes in the fog. Great composition with well thought through foreground with the gate.
a real master piece,
nikkitta (17066) 2013-10-29 12:17
It seem you were in a TE meeting and survived storm and wind of St Jude
This is the kind of post ( rural ones) You are an expert to take, rural scenarios, wooden fences and here the golden light of the early morning, which is as good as sunset but more difficult to obtain
Greetings and warm regards

What a great moment! I just love this sea of clouds covering the valley! The golden light is fabulous! Beautifully captured!
