Photographer's Note

OK I know this photo disobeys a couple of rules: it’s shot into the sun, which I managed to exclude from the frame, but I think I have managed to get enough detail in the sky to make this acceptable, and there’s no lens flare: there is no foreground interest as there wasn’t any I could use in the composition. My justification for posting it is, I like it and I hope some of you will too. I did obey the rule of thirds as there are three horizontal layers.
This Saturday we woke up to a heavy frost; only the second this season and I thought there would be some good photo opportunities. The plan was to return to Glaisdale, a village on the North Yorkshire Moors and re-take some shots I lost when my hard-drive burnt out. We had left the main Guisborough to Whitby moor road and were heading for the village of Lealholm, when I spotted the effect of the early(ish) light. (10am)The frost on the foreground had melted in the sun, but in the shaded valley, mist was rising from the frozen ground. I almost didn’t take any photos here because of having to shoot into the sun, but I’m glad I did as I am pleased with the result.
There is a zoomed in version in the WS.
PS the grad was x2 sorry
