Hint of orange Eshton Malhamdale

Hint of orange Eshton Malhamdale - Yorkshire Dales

This little clump of trees always catches my eye, as I drive passed them on my way to Malham. It's not often the conditions are right to make stopping worthwhile. However, this particular dawn showed promise. I set up and waited for the sun to rise to my right. To my dismay the cloud started to clear, but I saw to my left some ominous looking weather creeping up the valley. The rising sun was muted behind thin cloud. As the leading edge of the weather front moved in stage left, the sun lit the cloud in an orange glow, which filled the sky to my left. All I had to do was wait for the cloud to drift into my frame. Nikon D800 35mm lens f8 1/6 second. 11/01/2013 at 08.30. Location Eshton near Malham.
