The water was calm, almost mirror like and perfect for capturing the feel of the lake at dawn. Now all I needed was a splash of blue sky and a hint of sun. Despite all my coaxing I could not extract a glimmer of sunshine.
Being grateful for the smidgen of colour that did appear I sought a new perspective in this tangle of gnarled branches of some long fallen tree.
The foreground will always be an important part of any landscape and this tangled place made it something special even without the sun I had risen so early and driven so far for.
