I liked the way the electricity were pylons poking out of the mist in this picture..

  4. Beautiful . . . but are you sure they are power line towers? To me, they look like Ents . . . I hear they move around in the fog.

    • Thank you.. Yes, they could just be.. ;-)

  5. Gorgeous, Chillbrook. This is really an exceptional scenic picture.

  6. I’d like to photo dawn breaking, Adrian, but I find it very difficult getting out of bed!

    • It is an issue Malcolm, especially this time of year with the longest day approaching.. :-)

    You certainly get a sense of scale with this one ChillB.
    Apart from the foreground and a hint of a path there , I love the way the trees and hedge line are appearing out of the mist on the righthand side .
    Lovely .

    • Thank you Poppy. I was quite pleased with this one. The mist cleared for only a few minutes in this direction looking towards Redmoor. I’m looing forward to going back when it’s clear to see the view without the mist. :-)

  8. Great to see you are still getting up and out early to bring us these stunners Adrian!

    May 28, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    • Thank you Phil. I’m definitely a morning person.. :-)

      May 28, 2013 at 8:36 pm

  9. Quite other-worldly. I would definitely go with the ents.

    • Thank you Gunta. Not having read Tolkien (I tried but found it so dry – I’ve been meaning to give him another go) or seen any of the movies, I had to look up Ents following Emilios comment. :-)

    It definitely got an electric vibe :) Nice shot!

  11. I love the misty trees bordering the fields on the right and the morning sky… beautiful!

    May 28, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    • Thank you Tracey!

  13. The power lines do look effective – another point of interest in such a rich image. Beautiful!

    • Thank you very much Lou.

  15. Adrian, this is impressive; the details of colour and texture in the foreground are so good, and then the mists and clouds! Wow, outstanding!

    May 29, 2013 at 1:24 am

    • Thank you Karen. I really appreciate that.

      May 29, 2013 at 5:59 am

  18. That is an amazing sky you have captured, Adrian, as well as the colours of the foreground. All incredibly beautiful.

    May 29, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    • Thank you Otto. Much appreciated!

      May 29, 2013 at 5:12 pm

  19. At first glance, I thought that it was an underwater scene, had to look twice. Lovely colours.

    May 29, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    • Thanks David. The bluebells add so much to the foreground. I was surprised to see them, thinking they preferred a more sheltered environment. Happy they were there.

      May 29, 2013 at 5:16 pm

  20. I will dream tonight in cyan:)

    May 30, 2013 at 12:30 am

  21. First glance I thought I was looking at a rainforest. Wonderful dimension in this view! It’s been a while since stopping by, I like what you’ve done with the site :)

  25. A wonderful place.

    June 20, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    • It is indeed Lou!

      June 21, 2013 at 7:18 am

  26. An exceptional set of circumstances – the pylons peeping the the low lying cloud is wonderful although my brain struggles to get around the contrast with the sky above – intriguing – I love the 24mm lense btw clearly one of your favorites

    June 24, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    • Thank you Scott. This moment of clarity only lasted a few minutes before I was enveloped in the cloud myself. It was strange to have the early morning mist without having the usual clear blue sky. This was what I expected when I set out at that daft hour to take the pictures.
      The 24mm is an exceptional lens and you’re right, definitely my favourite.
