Damflask Winter Sunrise
What cold February morning it was at -5°C. This may have seemed positively tropical to those in Scotland who reached -24°C, and my friends who live in Kazakhstan reaching -30°C or less.
The snow still clinging on to the Dam wall in the outer reaches of Sheffield near Bradfield. Here are a couple of more pictures from that morning in the colours reflecting the temperature.
I had to stretch high with the tripod centre column to get this image of the Loxley Valley. The curves and contours outlined in the snow of the landscape below. The sun has breached the horizon, giving way to a grey start to the day.
You can see the catchment tank just off centre to the right in the image. This sits at the bottom of Stacey Lane, a rubble road that is my running nemesis hill.
A lot of toing and froing around this apart of the reservoir to get this shot. A part of me wished I was stood here for the sunrise. I love this one because of the curves leading you right in to the image. I wanted to get the overflow and the bridge, and the Dam wall in shot and was especially pleased to capture the reflecting clouds on the water.
Thanks for stopping by
