Although it has rained everyday for the last 20 days we did have a 24 hour spell of beautiful weather, which I spent camping at Tavy Cleave. I actually went on the trip to retake a composition I had found in bad weather, but when I found the heather further up the cleave that evening I resulved to get up and hike there in the morning where hopefully the rising sun would light the scene.

Shooting the heather with a rising sun will no doubt reduce Steve to tears, but he will have to get over it.

Fantastic shot. Brilliant location and use of light. Wish I could give a critique for you but I am self-learning and do not have the skills to critique. Love the depth of this shot. Normally i am not a fan of the (what I can only think of to call lens flare) around the sun but it works here. Im not talking about the rays of sunlight which are wonderful, I am talking about the circular glare around the sun.
Great capture.

Thanks very much. I wish I could get rid of that flare personally but I just can't and it is acceptable for this shot as you say.

As far as critiquing goes whilst I am not suggesting you do critique my images I would say that critique is a two way process. Whilst the obvious benefactor is the person whos image is critiqued I have often found critiquing the images of others to be a worthwhile process for myself. It gives you an appreciation of what it is you like and what is important to you in an image.
